George Willborn "The Stress Reliever" Joins The Rick and Sasha Show

The Rick and Sasha Show have added veteran radio personality and comedian George Willborn to their morning show. Back in early November Willborn sat in with Rick Party and Sasha the Diva for a couple shows. This morning that test run became official with Willborn being added to the syndicated morning show from Westwood One. The show based in Atlanta is looking to make traction in the syndicated Urban Radio morning space across the country with the recent retirement of Tom Joyner.

"After a year of national syndication, we've decided to add a third person to the show. He's funny, He's Experienced and he's a stress reliever..."

George started his radio career was in 1996 on WVAZ V103 Chicago with John Monds and Bonnie DeShong. He's also been a co-host on the Michael Baisden Show; 'The Real DC Morning Show' and 'Afternoons with Tony, Mo, and George' (with Tony Richards and Mo Ivory) on 96.3 WHUR. George also worked on the nationally syndicated, Doug Banks Show. In 2015, George landed a supporting role in Spike Lee’s major motion picture film “Chi-Raq.”

Official Press Release:

CUMULUS MEDIA’s Westwood One announces an exciting addition to the Rick and Sasha Show with one of the most celebrated comedic talents in the business, George Willborn. George has a 25 year plus stand-up/broadcast radio career that is unrivaled. From successful stints on WVAZ Chicago, WHUR Washington DC, and twice with the nationally syndicated Michael Baisden program, Willborn brings experience, star power, and stellar reputation to the rapidly expanding Rick and Sasha show, now heard on over 25 radio stations.

“I’ve been a part of multiple #1 radio shows in my career, yet I’ve never felt as optimistic about the potential success of a show than I do about Rick and Sasha. After appearing on the show as a guest, I experienced an instant chemistry with them, and instantly fell back in love with radio. Rick and Sasha just get it, and together we will be an unstoppable force,” said Willborn. “It’s game on and game over for the new sound of Urban Adult radio everywhere.”

Charles Steinhauer, Chief Operating Officer, Westwood One says, “with the addition of George complementing this already highly successful cast, we look forward to continuing the trajectory of fastest-growing urban adult show morning show throughout 2020 and for years to come. George’s special gift is that he naturally and intrinsically understands situational comedic radio, as well as the intricacies of working effectively with a team. This is the super trio to watch.”
