V103 Chicago Parts Ways with Ramonski Luv


V103 (WVAZ 102.7 FM) top-rated host Ramonski Luv was let go this week by Clear Channel Media + Entertainment Chicago. Ramonski was part of the #1 rated evening show at V103. "The Real Show" with his on-air partner Joe Soto had recently celebrated their 10th anniversary together this past April.

Luv was last heard on the air on V103 on Friday, hosting V103's all-day 4th of July House music marathon and last Sunday on the anti-gun violence broadcast. Instead of returning to the airwaves on Monday night, Joe Soto was hosting alone.




Joe Soto and Ramonski Luv
Ramonski Luv (Raymond Wade) began his 30 year radio career as a producer for numerous hosts at 107.5 WGCI-FM, including Doug Banks when he picked up the nickname of Romanski Luv. In the 1980s, he also created and hosted Chicago's first all-rap show, "Rap Down." From there he went on to host and co-host numerous other shows on WGCI-FM, and since 2000 moved over to WVAZ-FM. "The Real Show" ran in afternoon drive time for a number of years until Chicago radio legend Doug Banks' nationally syndicated show was brought in to occupy afternoons at the station.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

Tavis Smiley owned Los Angeles talk station KBLA Talk 1580 donated $20,000 in scholarship money to the NABJLA and MPJI. Smiley says, “The National Association of Black Journalists of Los Angeles and the Minority Photo-Journalism Institute are making a tangible difference in our community by helping students pursue careers in journalism and communications. KBLA ‘Talk 1580’ strongly believes in enlightening, empowering and encouraging tomorrow’s reporters, editors and potential talk radio hosts. Hopefully, our scholarships make a difference.”

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
