Two prominent Dallas radio stations publicly announced that they will no longer support R. Kelly’s music on Monday. The decision from K104, which plays a mixture of contemporary hip-hop and R&B, and KRNB, which plays R&B reaching back to the Nineties, came in the wake of the six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which aired last week on Lifetime.

Calls for radio to remove the singer’s music from their playlists began to take place more than a year ago following an extensive investigation of Kelly by Buzzfeed, and some stations had already taken steps to remove the singer from rotation, including WBLS in New York City and KJLH in Los Angeles. However, the decision by these two Dallas stations, both of which are locally owned by the Service Broadcasting Corporation, suggests that public opinion around the singer’s alleged sexual abuse may be changing among core R&B fans after the airing of Surviving R. Kelly. Read more from Rolling Stone.
