George Wilborn Joins The Michael Baisden Show


George Wilborn resurfaced today on the afternoon show on 96.3 WHUR and confirmed what we had heard from sources. Wilborn thanked the listeners of WHUR for their support during the transition in the afternoon programming at the station. He will be joining the re-launch of the Michael Baisden program when it debuts next Monday from Atlanta. Wilborn was part of the former TMG program on WHUR. The show will debut on 40 stations across the country besides WHUR. It's set to replace the Afternoon Rush on the American Urban Radio Network (AURN).



From Michael Baisden.com “Michael Baisden Returns to Washington’s ‘Adult Mix’ WHUR 96.3FM”

Washington, D.C. He’s back! “The Bad Boy of Radio” Michael Baisden is making his long awaited return to the airwaves on WHUR 96.3FM – Howard University Radio Network. The new syndicated “Michael Baisden Show” is set to re-launch Monday, January 16th weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.


Baisden is no stranger to WHUR’s “Adult Mix.” His nationally syndicated program aired successfully on the station from 2005 to 2013. “We are very excited to have Michael back in our program line up and we look forward to the same ratings success he enjoyed in previous years,” said WHUR General Manager Jim Watkins.

Baisden will be joined on the show by his sidekick George Wilborn, “The Stress Reliever,” who is a fan favorite for Washington listeners. The program, provided by the American Urban Radio Networks will be heard in some 40 other cities nationwide and will maintain its mixture of R&B music with relationship talk, politics, hot topics, and activism.

A Chicago Native, the 53-year-old Baisden’s, road to success began in 1995 with the self publishing of his first book, “Never Satisfied: How and Why Men Cheat.” He has gone on to write a host of other books, including “Men Cry in the Dark,” and “The Maintenance Man.” The latter two books have been adapted to stage plays.

Baisden’s addition to WHUR rounds out the station’s weekday programs that include the “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., “The Triscina Grey Show” heard from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the “Daily Drum” with newsman Harold Fisher at 7 p.m. and the “Original Quiet Storm“ with Jeff Brown from 7:30 p.m. to 12-midnight.
