I’ve known Hurricane Dave Smith for close to 20 years. I remember him best for being the PD at WBLK in Buffalo, my hometown, but he has consistently created an impressive resume of various additional experiences including a stint at Reach Media before returning to programming for Urban One (formerly Radio One).
Dave is the Vice President of Programming and Operations at Urban One Atlanta. Atlanta is a market that dominates the urban radio landscape with, at last check, 11 to 13 urban or urban leaning stations. He oversees The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, The Ed Lover Show and he consults the Richmond Urban One stations.
