Cox Media's Urban AC Stations Will Carry The Rickey Smiley Morning Show in 2020

Cox Media Group has announced that REACH Media, Inc’s nationally syndicated “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” will replace “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” when Tom Joyner retires at the end of 2019. The Rickey Smiley Morning Show will air weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. on all of CMG’s top rated Urban AC brands in Florida, including the Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville markets.

“We are thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with Reach Media to bring Rickey Smiley’s new show to listeners of CMG’s top rated Urban AC stations in Miami, Orlando, and Jacksonville markets,” said CMG Vice President of Content and Audience, Tim Clarke. “Rickey has been a fantastic partner to Cox Media Group for many years and we are so excited to see him begin this new chapter.”

One of the fastest growing radio programs in the country, the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” is quick-paced and anchored by one of the nation’s most popular comedians. Easily entertaining a wide variety of listeners, the “can’t miss a minute” morning show perfectly blends music, exclusive comedy and spiritual entertainment with today’s hottest topics in news, entertainment and sports. The “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” was recognized by the National Association of Broadcasters in 2017 as recipient of the Marconi award for “Top National/Syndicated Talent.”

“We are thrilled that Tom Joyner’s legacy will be carried on by the multi-talented Rickey Smiley,” said REACH Media, Inc Vice President, Affiliate Relations Melody Talkington. “Over the past 16 years, I have had the privilege to watch this show develop into a Marconi Award winning morning show. What makes this extra exciting is the continuation of our long-standing partnership with the Cox Media Group.”

Me and Mo'Nique go WAY back, and me, Headkrack, Da Brat and Gary With Da Tea had a lot of fun talking about coming up as comics, her Las Vegas residency, why she wouldn't want to host the Academy Awards and more!!
