Former WRNB Radio Personality "Lady B" Makes Public Appearance at Her Documentary Screening Event

Lady B pictured here with Bobby Brown talks about her departure from WRNB at the event.

Documentary filmmaker Mike Dennis has completed a journey through his film company Reel Black that began in 2001. He has finally had the opportunity to screen his two films '"Bring the Beat Back"and "A Salute to Lady B." The films showcase Lady B's lifelong career in Hip Hop and radio along with the artists out of Philadelphia and the role they played in the early years in Rap music.

During the event Lady B also spoke about her departure from her radio home over the last decade at 100.3 WRNB. She said she was disappointed in the company she worked for. That company was Urban One, Inc. also known as Radio One. Lady B was replaced by the D.L. Hughley Show in the afternoons at the station.

Lady B had been quiet about her firing due to contractual regulations. She was fired in December 2017 and didn't get an opportunity to thank her fans until this Facebook post on May 9th.

Lady B talked about being let go from WRNB below via Twitter. Lady B's next radio move will most likely have her re-surfacing at 105.3 WDAS FM on the weekends at some point once her contractual non-compete clause has expired. It would seem to be a natural fit. (We do notice that the three tweets below are from WDAS midday personality Patty Jackson.)

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.
