  1. Feels like I'm chilln with the fam... keepz me ROLLIN .....I LOVE HOW REAL YALL ARE...TMZ DONT GOT SHH-IT ON DISH NATION....

  2. I love the show but the idiot from the Los Angeles show is not up to date with geography. He wants to know how Martinez can be French. Spain is right next door to France you dumb small minded idiot. Let oliver and Halle have their cute little mixed baby and let them call it whatever they want. I love Dallas and Atlanta and most the time L.A but when I hear something so dumb I gotta say something. Gary rocks.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
