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.

    1. I agree. WHUR NEEDS TO GET IT TOGETHER AND STOP TEASING THEIR AUDIENCE.

      MICHAEL, you do you. It would be great if you had your own company and could avoid this yo-yo treatment.

  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.

    2. I agree with Anonymous and Unknown, I could't understand why thy bought him back. Same platform nothing new. Except if this is possible at all he was even more chauvinist!!

  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.

  10. I am so disappointed the show was very informative it should be back on the air

  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.

  15. This is the 2nd time my mother and I only came back as listeners to WHUR for his show. We hate the hang suite.

  16. Yeah...but why???

  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..

    ReplyDelete
  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.

  19. Glad Baisden is gone. DL Hughley is much better. I agree with previous commenter. Sack Steve Harvey show also

  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 ....

  21. My ride home belongs to Sirius XM now!

  22. Michael Baisden was a great show. I wish you would have done a survey of what your listeners wanted.
    Please bring him back!!!!!!!!!
    He was great for the community!!!!!
    I guess it's Willie Mo for me Now!!!!!!!

  23. Stop disrespecting your listeners by making changes without any explanation. I like that show.

    1. Why do you people feel WHUR OWE'S YOU and EXPLANATION?? It's business. If the show is loosing ratings or if it's just plain crap it's off the air. You are GROWN PEOPLE!! Exercise your right to change the station or not!

      Delete
  24. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in WHUR!! You definitely lost another listener. You've brought back drab, plain ole radio. We need a show that will keep us abreast of the things that the typical media don't speak on much. One who will be candid about issues that affect us, and who's not scared to voice his opinion. Yes, he walked the line a bit with certain subject matter, but typically kept it real! He brought political issues, racial issues, relationship issues and other topics of substance to the forefront like NO other host!! I just listen through his phone app now but you really need to BRING HIM BACK!! No disrespect to your current host but for this time slot, you've digressed!

  25. I will not be listening to 96.3 anymore!

  26. It is coincidental that they took him off after the fundraiser. Surely had they done it before they knew donations would be low. SMH.

  27. 1st Tom Joyner, Now Michael Baisden..it's like losing friends. I looked forward to hearing their voice daily, now it hurts.. I'll now listen to my playlist and I'll regret not being informed and educated by two Brother's who lifted my spirits daily

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sure, i'm surprised too he is gone. I enjoyed most of the subject matter although not so much the music.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ABOUT TIME!! NOTHING DIFFERENT FROM WHEN HE LEFT WHUR THE FIRST TIME!! BET YOU A MILLION BUCKS HIS RATINGS SUCKED! NO STATION CAN SUPPORT A SHOW WITH SUCKING RATINGS!! PD'S GET FIRED WHEN THAT HAPPENS!

  30. So glad he is gone. Sorry George went with him

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is horrible! I loved listening to the show in the afternoons. WHUR is so boring now in the afternoon. Will be listening to Donnie now.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I liked the show more this 2nd time. I did like Tony, Mo and George better. I miss it but still listen to whur. I didn't listen daily so of course I noticed weeks later he was gone. The time I spend commuting is brief so not listening much to live radio, prefer Spotify where I can listen to what I want.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow. I listened to Michael on my long drive home from work. I just realized some boring guy was on and Googled it. I think Michael was too vocal about getting us out to vote and against Trump. Shane on WHUR.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I no longer work afternoons, listening to Baisden's show on the way, so it's taken me all this time to realize the show was gone! I preferred his show to D.L. Hughley, but I prefer Spotify or even watching personalities go live on Facebook or Youtube.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Im done with WHUR for not telling listeners. Thank god for the APP. Mije keep doubg your thing. FAN FOR LIFE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. WHUR has for the second time, disappointed the afternoon audience. The energy and love that Micheal had coming back after being dumped previously was great. He had a great attitude and a lot of love for the people. You all knew that you couldn't replace him. Having no program in the after has made me just do paid radio. I hate that you took your listeners for granted. Shows us how unstable and petty your staff and decision makers are. You had the best radio person ever---and I didnot agree with all his ideas but I was a faithful listener who was left hanging with no explanation. I just downloaded the Micheal Baisden app.....so I will still listen. Winning......juus sayin.....

  37. Your station has lost me without Micheal you have cheated me out of an afternoon commute.

  38. he has sometimes hard to listen to with his options on relationships. I always use to say to myself , I hope my man does not listen to this . I would have loved just listening to George, he was always a voice of reason w/o making it seems as if his opinion on anything was other than just a opinion.
