Urban One Urban AC “105.9 Kiss-FM” WDMK Detroit is re-adding the Tom Joyner Morning Show. Joyner, who aired on WDMK from 2005-2014, will return to the morning slot after being relegated to former sister 1200 WCHB and later 99.9 W260CB Hamtramck/WDMK-HD2. The return of Joyner to mornings at WDMK will see John Mason move to the 12-3pm slot and current 10am-3pm host Fantasee Blue move to 10am-12pm. Morning co-host Coco exits as the syndicated DL Hughley remains in afternoons and “Love and R&B with John Monds” in nights.
Urban One has announced that St. Louis Operations Manager Jowcol ‘Boogie D’ Dolby will add those duties for its Detroit cluster as well. Dolby fills the role held by Nate Bell prior to his exit in September. He will now oversee the day-to-day programming of Urban Oldies “Soul 99.9” W260CB/WDMK-HD2, Gospel “Praise 102.7” WPZR, Urban AC “105.9 Kiss-FM” WDMK, and Urban “Hot 107.5” WGPR in Detroit in addition to Urban AC “95.5 The Lou” WFUN and Urban “Hot 104.1” WHHL St. Louis. To assist Dolby when out of town, the company has promoted WDMK midday host Fawn ‘Fantasee Blu’ Connelly and WGPR middayer Arthur ‘A+’ Willis to Assistant Program Director roles for their respective stations.
