Atlanta's Old School Station is NOW Mix 87.7 and Moves Porsche Foxx to Mornings


Core Communications Urban Oldies “Old School 87.7” has relaunched as Mix 87.7. With the relaunch Porsche Foxx moves from afternoons to mornings at the Atlanta area Urban AC station. Foxx replaces the syndicated Russ Parr Morning Show.

The new Mix 87.7 will feature music from the late 1980's through today's R&B. The station drops  from its playlist music from the 1970's and mid 80's. Current songs by SZA, Bruno Mars and Jhene Aiko will be added, while Barry White, Patti LaBelle, and Al Green are gone. However Prince, Bobby Brown, Cameo and Mary J. Blige will remain in rotation. 

Mix 87.7 joins the most crowded Urban AC format market in the country with competition from Cox Media Group’s “Kiss 104.1” and Radio One’s “Majic 107.5/97.5.” They also compete to a certain extent for listeners in the 25-54 demo, with Entercom's (WVEE) V-103.

Porsche Foxx, by the way, was a longtime midday personality on V-103 and started her initial run in the mid 1990's. A DUI led to her first exit from "The People's Station" in 2005. V-103 hired her back in 2007 but let her go again in 2008.

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.
