PHILLY is getting MISS JONES all for itself again, writes THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. The morning-radio host (real name TARSHA JONES), also known as JONESY, has been heard since NOVEMBER on RADIO ONE Top 40/Rhythmic WPHI (100.3 THE BEAT) in a syndication deal with EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97)/NEW YORK.
RADIO ONE/PHILADELPHIA OM ELROY SMITH said JONES would start exclusively on WPHI JULY 7th, becoming PHILLY's only local Urban morning show on a commercial FM station.
JONES parted company with THE BEAT (then at 103.9) in 2003 after an 18-month career capped by two suspensions and a slander suit that was settled out of court.
