The Michael Baisden Show is Out at 96.3 WHUR


The Michael Baisden Show has been dropped from the programming schedule at 96.3 WHUR FM in Washington, D.C. Baisden has been off the air for about a week and all mentions of his show have been removed from the WHUR website. WHUR having recently parted ways with program director Hector Hannibal, has decided to go in a new direction with their afternoon programming. With the departure of WHUR, Atlanta's Mix 87.7, a Low-Power FM station, is Michael Baisden's only affiliate in a Top 10 radio market. The show is still heard in more than 40 medium and small-sized markets across the country with co-hosts George Wilborn and KJLH's Dominique DiPrima. 

When the reincarnation of "The Bad Boy of the Radio" occurred in January of 2017, WHUR was the highest rated and most listened to station that became an affiliate of the show. Co-host George Wilborn even left WHUR as part of the local afternoon show with Tony Richards and Mo Ivory to join forces with Baisden once again. The original show once known as "Love, Lust, and Lies" was dropped by it's first syndication company Cumulus/ABC Radio in 2013. 

In what direction will WHUR go? There are several options out there including syndication, but staying local will probably be their best choice. The station faces stiff competition from radio legend Donnie Simpson, whose show airs on Majic 102.3 and 92.7 in the DMV.  Saturday night Hang Suite host Wes Hall is holding down the afternoon show for now.

  6. Thanks WHUR! I have no idea why you brought Michael Baisden back in the first place. His show had not evovled since you first dropped him. Same lame topics discussed! Bravo Bravo! Now I don't have to change the station after the Midday Show.

  7. Disappointed once again. Howard is Republican school and this close to election time...you do the math. Donnie Simpson will be #1 with no competation

  8. I think they should put D.L. Hughley show on. He took Baisden's slot on majic 95.9 when Mike first got cancelled in 2013. D.L. show is really good. I have to listen to it on the app. WHUR should pick it up.

  9. I don't agree with how they handled it, but I'm glad he's gone! He was so irritating to listen to, he always talked over people and was so arrogant.

  11. I enjoyed the Michael Baisden show, and immediately realized he was no longer on air. I searched the Internet for some explanation some weeks ago (21 October), but found no explanation. What a shame... Mr. Baisden made for good radio, and is aware (or "woke" as the children say now, like they invented "wokeness"). We all need to teach the children.

  17. That was stupid to cancel Michael Baisden Show, Whur Already Has Stiff Competition With Donnie Simpsons Show and Satellite Radio At The 3pm to7pm Time Slot..

  18. Is this what they call Ghosting?? A little warning would've been nice. After a long day at work I can appreciate a little adult dialogue and laughter. I can't go back to boring radio. I just can't. I'll listen to my own playlist and "The Daily Drum" on the ride home.

  20. It was time for change Michael Baisdon show was too negative and in my opinion kept black people stuck. He offered no solutions didn't appeared to approach situation serious enough .... everything was a joke ....
