WKYS Hires Former BET Host Shorty Da Prince to replace Industry Vet Coka Lani
|Bow Wow, Paigion, Miss. Mykie, and Shorty Da Prince|
Shorty was part of a four person crew that BET chose to replace Terrence J and Rocsi Diaz on the once popular 106 & Park weekday music show in 2012. The new hosts chosen from a contest didn't maintain the ratings of the show and the decline caused BET to swap new hosts in and out in hopes of finding a winning formula and a winning team. Shorty Da Prince was out of the hosting chair permanently one year after his hire. Today only Bow Wow remains as a host on the show. Shorty Da Prince has hosted radio shows on Radio One's Detroit Hot 107.5, St. Louis Hot 104.1, and most recently in May at Cleveland's Z 107.9 where he replaced Colby Colb to do afternoons.
The causality in this line-up change is industry veteran Coka-Lani Kimborough. Coka-Lani the former midday host has had career stops at 95.5 WPGC in the DC as well as in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Miami, and Tampa.
