Former NYC Mayor Dinkins Signs Off At WLIB-A
April 9, 2014 at 5:37 AM (PT)
Former NEW YORK CITY Mayor DAVID DINKINS is calling it a career -- a radio career. DINKINS has hosted a talk show for years on what was INNER CITY, then YMF, and now EMMIS Gospel WLIB-A/NEW YORK. With the latest change of ownership, DINKINS feels it's time to move on.
"The split is 'amicable'," he told THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, which notes, "He does share an oft-expressed concern that the number of black community radio programs keeps diminishing, a trend that has coincided with the loss of local owners like INNER CITY. He notes the recent switch of progressive talk WWRL (1600 AM) to Hispanic programming and how that put longtime talk host MARK RILEY off the air."
DINKINS will air his final show this SATURDAY.
