September 11, 2013 at 10:41 AM (PT)
EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97)/NEW YORK air personality MR CEE has resigned. MR CEE has been the subject of considerable controversy after a 2011 arrest for loitering for the purpose of engaging in a prostitution.
ALLHIPHOP.COM reports that a man claims that MR CEE solicited sex from him, offerning to pay the man $100. The man posted the audio of the alleged solicitation online.
EMMIS/NEW YORK issued this statement from SVP/GM ALEXANDRA CAMERON:
"Due to some personal circumstances that have become public, after 20 years of service, MR. CEE has chosen to resign. We feel that this is in the best interest of both HOT 97 and CEE’s personal well-being. While we do not endorse the alleged activities, he is clearly facing a personal dilemma that is for him and only him to comment on. We are saddened by his departure; his contributions here at HOT 97 were great and we know him as a friend, a caring individual and significant hip hop advocate. We wish MR CEE the best and will always consider him a family member of HOT 97.
Moments ago, he officially signed off, on the air and will finish out his last show today on SEPTEMBER 11, 2013, an already sad day for NEW YORK CITY."
