As first hinted by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Rodney Ho in late January, WVEE will reunite Frank Ski, Wanda Smith, and Joe ‘Miss Sophia’ Taylor for “Frank & Wanda In The Morning” starting Monday, February 12. Ski hosted mornings at WVEE from 1998 through 2012 when he was replaced by Cameron. He has recently been hosting weekend shifts at the station after spending two years in afternoons at Urban AC 96.3 WHUR Washington DC. Smith exited the station along with Ski in December 2012, but then returned to the morning show in 2014. Drag Queen Miss Sophia last worked at WVEE in 2010 and has been out of radio outside of a couple of months in mornings at Core Communicators Urban “Streetz 94.5” W233BF in 2014.
Entercom, the #1 creator of live, original, local audio content in the United States, announced the return of Frank Ski as morning host on V-103 (WVEE-FM), The People’s Station in Atlanta. Frank will re-join his former morning co-host Wanda Smith on the newly titled “Frank & Wanda in the Morning,” beginning February 12, 2018. Joe Taylor, known as “Miss Sophia,” will also return to the show with her signature “Girl Talk” segment and entertainment updates. The morning show will air weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
“Frank & Wanda have been an integral part of our local Atlanta community for well over a generation. We are excited to be able to bring the team back together to re-connect with our listeners and build on our ongoing commitment to entertain, inform and inspire,” said Rick Caffey, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Atlanta. “In addition, the show will be an integral part of V-103’s digital content initiatives.”
“We’re ecstatic to reunite as co-hosts and be back on the air at V-103,” said Wanda. “I’m looking forward to welcoming Frank back as co-host.”
“Atlanta is our home and we wake up every day with a new drive to serve our community and add new energy and flavor to our listeners’ morning commute,” continued Frank. “We look forward to sharing great inspirational information and having a whole lot of fun with longtime fans and can’t wait to invite new listeners to the show.”
The “Frank and Wanda Morning Show” aired on Atlanta’s V-103 from 1998 to 2012. During that time, it quickly rose to become a listener favorite due to its humorous take on news and lifestyle issues.
