Your Non-Local Radio Morning Shows Are Getting Shuffled Around

Posted By on Mon, Aug 19, 2013 at 1:30 PM

If you tuned into My 92.9 this morning excited to hear what morning show host Valentine had to say, you were in for a surprise, as the station dumped the LA-based personality, replacing him with Mojo of Mojo in the Morning, a Detroit-based show formerly on Hot 98.3 (full disclosure: I worked at Clear Channel, the parent company for My 92.9 and Hot 98.3 for a few months last year, but I have zero inside information or influence over there now).

Mojo, who was on mornings for KRQ before leaving for Detroit in 2000, seems like a weird fit for My 92.9, a station that seemingly was aiming for adult females with a mix of adult contemporary hits and pop songs with the rap portions removed, but hey, if you're looking for phone scams and "second date updates," it'll be easy to flip back and forth between 92.9 and KRQ at 93.7.

Hot 98.3, now without a morning show, stuck to playing just music this morning, will be airing The Breakfast Club, Power 105.1's morning show in New York City. Again, this seems a little weird, since urban radio is generally a different animal when you switch from East to West Coast, but the show, hosted by DJ Envy, does get great interviews, from Jay Z to this morning's talk with Macklemore, so I guess that's something.

If you want to hear local personalities and music on the radio in the morning, you're out of luck at Clear Channel, with the exception of Melissa Santa Cruz on Radio Tejano.
