The RICKEY SMILEY Morning Show will be heard starting MONDAY, OCTOBER 6th on parent company RADIO ONE WHTA/ATLANTA and WHTD/DETROIT. In addition, the show has just been added at CLEAR CHANNEL WIBB/MACON and MACDONALD BROADCASTING WQHH/LANSING. Recently, SMILEY's program began broadcasting on COX WEDR/MIAMI.
"The show has never been hotter and the ratings tell the story. He's #1 in his target demos of 18-34 and 18-49 in virtually every market, and most recently in AUGUST, the latest trends have him even beating the legendary Top 40 station KHKS/DALLAS -- besides having almost twice the audience of K-104. His depth and range from comedian to humanitarian truly enables him to form a strong and lasting emotional bond with his listeners and the numbers everywhere spell that out quite loudly," said SYNDICATION ONE Pres./Programming GARY BERNSTEIN.
"I am very excited that RICKEY will be heard in our key markets of ATLANTA and DETROIT. He is a star -- one of those rare individuals who can fill an arena of 5,000 one day and be on the radio in that same market the next day. RICKEY is very creative and genuinely cares about his listeners, which translates to a strong community presence. He is also joined by a team of incredibly talented personalities who create an entertainment package which just can't be duplicated, " said RADIO ONE SVP/Programming Content JAY STEVENS.
The RICKEY SMILEY Morning Show is now heard in over 20 markets including DALLAS, ST. LOUIS, OKLAHOMA CITY, TOLEDO and MIAMI
