V-103 is shaking things up in the new year by handing pink slips to Wanda Smith and Miss Sophia of the “Frank & Wanda Morning Show.”
The news of Wanda’s departure comes three months after her major blow up with Katt Williams that received national attention after going viral.
Wanda has been a mainstay on Atlanta radio for two decades.
It appears V-103 is shifting direction in an effort to engage a younger audience.
General manager Rick Caffey said in a press release:
In addition to mornings on-air, the show will be an integral part of V-103’s digital content initiative.
We look forward to celebrating the city’s urban culture and to providing our listeners with fresh, engaging content on all the platforms we know they love.
Starting January 22, Frank Ski will be joined by his new co-hosts, Jade Novah and JR Jackson.
Jade Novah is a singer, songwriter and actress hailing from Los Angeles. She doesn’t appear to have prior radio experience, but no one cares about that these days.
She’s definitely excited about being in Atlanta.
Atlanta is where I started my career as a solo artist and content creator and I’m excited to come back to the city to represent the voice of a free-thinking generation.
JR Jackson is a sports radio personality hailing from the boogie down Bronx.
He’s most excited about immersing himself in the culture of the city.
I look forward to getting to know the city’s unique culture – from the arts to sports and everything in between.
Welp. Life is about change. I’ll have to tune in and see what they’ve got going on.
I haven’t listened to Atlanta morning radio in almost 10 years.
