RADIO ONE wasted no time in replacing departed OM DAISY DAVIS, who exited THURSDAY (NET NEWS 7/5) from its PHILADELPHIA cluster.
The new OM will be ELROY R.C. SMITH, who on MAY 22 resigned his position as OM of CLEAR CHANNEL Urban AC WVAZ (V103)/CHICAGO (NET NEWS 5/22). SMITH is set to become the new OM For RADIO ONE’s Top 40/Rhythmic WPHI (100.3 THE BEAT), Urban AC WRNB and Black Gospel WPPZ (PRAISE 103.9).
The first indication of the agreement between SMITH and RADIO ONE came during "THE PHENOMENAL 15 SALUTE” to SMITH in CHICAGO FRIDAY (7/6). It came from RADIO ONE consultant BARRY MAYO, who said "they had their eye on ELROY for some time."
