Radio-One Adds Rickey Smiley In Four Markets
Smiley adds clearances at “92.7 The Block” WQNC Charlotte, “101.1 The Wiz” WIZF Cincinnati, “Hot 96.3” WHHH Indianapolis, and “K97.5” WQOK Raleigh. WQNC had been jockless in mornings since its launch last summer, while the other three stations drop Russ Parr. Smiley had been airing in Charlotte on Core Communicator’s “Streetz 103.3” 1370 WGIV/W277CB until the end of 2015.
Both Parr and Smiley are syndicated by Radio-One’s Reach Media. Smiley now airs on eleven Radio-One owned stations, while Parr will only be on Urban AC “Majic 102.3” WMMJ Washington DC after his move from sister 93.9 WKYS earlier this month amidst rumors he will take Tom Joyner’s place at Urban AC stations at the end of this year.
