Radio One Sells Detroit Heritage Station WCHB, Mildred Gaddis Will Move to Praise 102.7

"The Mildred Gaddis Show," which currently airs 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on WCHB AM and 99.9 FM, will move to Praise 102.7 from 10 a.m.-noon. Gaddis, who is celebrating a 40-year career in radio, will also provide news cut-ins on the "Mason and Coco in the Morning Show" on KISS 105.9 FM.

FROM RADIO ONE- Radio One has agreed to sell 15kW News/Talk WCHB-AM (1200) Detroit to Crawford Broadcasting, while shifting anchor talent to new frequencies. The deal is expected to close within the next 90 days. “The Mildred Gaddis Show,” which has been a staple in Detroit on WCHB, will move to co-owned Gospel WPZR-FM from 10am to noon following closing. Syndicated Tom Joyner, which is simulcast on WCHB will continue on 99.9 FM, weekdays from 6-10am.

Gaddis, who is commemorating 40 years in radio, will also join the unique hometown show, “Mason and COCO in the Morning” handling daily personality news cut-ins on WDMK-FM (Kiss 105.9 FM).

“To get what you’ve never had, you have to do what you’ve never done,” said Radio One Detroit VP/General Manager Kathy Stinehour. “We have sold our AM talk radio facility and are proud of the heritage role the station has held in Detroit. We view this as an opportunity to move the WCHB voice to a larger FM platform and intend to super-serve our listeners with urban music, community engagement and inspiration-what we do best.”

Following the completion of the sale of WCHB, Radio One Detroit will become a three cluster market of FM Urban stations consisting of KISS 105.9, Hot 107.5 and Praise 102.7.

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.
