Are Urban Radio Syndicated Shows in Trouble? Michael Baisden Show Canceled in Philly
Over the last couple of months we’ve seen some interesting things happen with syndicated shows at urban radio. As many of you Radio Facts fans know, we are team local morning shows for urban radio and have always been (unless the show advertises with us at which point we shamelessly change our point of view…)
- Rickey Smiley has been canceled in a couple of markets recently
- Tom Joyner is getting older and he’s going through a messy divorce
- Steve Harvey is burning the candle at both ends, how long can he do this
- Michael Baisden lost New York as a market a few months back and now Philly
Could this mean the resurrection of local morning shows? We’ve gotten word from some radio notables that corporations are starting to look at local morning shows for some stations. Your thoughts?
