Gillie and Wallo of Million Dollaz Worth of Game Would Be Great Radio Stars But Radio Can't Afford Them

Then again, can they afford not to... Absolutely the best podcast out there right now is Gillie and Wallo of Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast. They started it 2019 and joined Barstool Sports in 2020. There are currently ranked as the number one podcast on Apple Music. So technically they are a sports podcast, but actually they are the go to podcast for anyone hoping to promote their music. 

We've been a fan for a minute.

They regularly get 1,000,000 + views (one million) on their episodes on YouTube. Especially if it's a guest like Shaq, Kevin Durant, Meek Mill, Jadakiss or Soulja Boy, they're getting a mill. At this time they are outpacing once very popular podcaster Joe Budden. (Joe Budden had a shot as morning host at Hot 97 around 2004. Didn't pan out though.)

Just wondering if any radio programmers ever thought Gillie and Wallo would have made a great morning duo before they exploded as podcasters. Then think, how would they even pitch them to a GM or OM who oversee corporate entities that are essentially out of touch with thinking outside the box??? But at this point what radio could offer, it wouldn't be worth Gillie and Wallo's while monetarily. We'll delve into deeper the fall off of the urban/hip hop radio audience of Generation Z and their audio consumption in a future post.

If you have never heard them, count yourself among the unlucky few. Take a listen. They are the best. 

**Warning. They don't work clean. The Shaq episode above is much cleaner than the Kash Doll episode below. Everything they do is good.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

Tavis Smiley owned Los Angeles talk station KBLA Talk 1580 donated $20,000 in scholarship money to the NABJLA and MPJI. Smiley says, “The National Association of Black Journalists of Los Angeles and the Minority Photo-Journalism Institute are making a tangible difference in our community by helping students pursue careers in journalism and communications. KBLA ‘Talk 1580’ strongly believes in enlightening, empowering and encouraging tomorrow’s reporters, editors and potential talk radio hosts. Hopefully, our scholarships make a difference.”

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
