K.Samone Named NEW Midday Host at 95.7 Jamz Replacing ‘NuYork’

SummitMedia LLC announces K.Samone to host middays on WBHJ-FM 95.7 Jamz. K.Samone comes to SummitMedia Birmingham from Radio One Atlanta, where she hosted “On the Phone With K.Samone” on Hot 107.9 (WHTA) and served as a digital content curator. Prior to that she produced shows for WPHI, WRNB, and WPPZ at Radio One Philadelphia.

“I am thrilled to be a part of such a legendary station with a phenomenal team. I look forward to connecting and adapting to the Birmingham culture and community,” K.Samone said.

A self-proclaimed ‘Lady of Media,’ K.Samone has also had stints as a sideline reporter and producer for NNPS-TV in Norfolk, Va., a role in the first season of ‘Thou Shall Not’ on TV One and a correspondent for Sheen Magazine.

“K.Simone bring great energy and experience to the 95.7 Jamz team,” said Maurice DeVoe, WBHJ Program Director and SummitMedia’s Rhythmic Top 40 Brand and Content Leader. “We’re lucky to have her here in Birmingham.”

K.Samone can be heard every weekday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on 95.7 Jamz or 957jamz.com.

K.Samone replaces station veteran and former program director ‘NuYork’ who now hosts afternoons as 'JusNik' on 107.5 WBLS in New York City. The midday slot at 95.7 Jamz has been without a full-time host since NuYork's departure in July.

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments.

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.
