RADIO ONE Urban AC WAMJ (MAJIC 107.5/97.5)/ATLANTA has dropped syndication in the afternoon, and is moving night slammer SILAS "SIMAN BABY!" ALEXANDER to afternoons starting at 3p TODAY (5/31).
ACCESS ATLANTA's RODNEY HO reports, "MAJIC management had been riding high with syndicated man MICHAEL BAISDEN until MARCH, when his show was abruptly cut off when negotiations broke down with his syndicator. CUMULUS MEDIA, BAISDEN's syndicator, replaced him with SKIP MURPHY. MAJIC tried MURPHY out for two months but RADIO ONE/ATLANTA GM TIM DAVIES said he decided to drop MURPHY and move ALEXANDER from his night slot the past seven years to afternoons."
"We felt we needed a local program at this time," DAVIES told HO.
Longtime ATLANTA personality RENE MILLER is tapped for nights.
