Little more than six months after the debut of the syndicated D.L. Hughley Show, has its’ first casualty by being swiftly removed from the airwaves of Crawford Broadcasting’s Chicago 106.3/ WSRB-FM/. Former WGCI-FM DJ Mike Love is the new live and local afternoon drive host. “Bad Boy Radio with Mike Love” airs weekdays 2pm-6pm. Earlier this month, WSRB-FM eliminated the D.L. Hughley Show from their line-up. Alleged sources claim the decision was due to ongoing contract disagreements and failure to “reach” an agreement with the show’s syndicator, Reach Media. Those factors coupled with a large dose of “divo” behaviour can be a sure-fire recipe for disaster. We can only wonder if this is the return of the syndications curse. And, as in the case of Baisden, do PD’s have a replacement in the wings that ready to stick and move, in the event “something goes down” in their respective market(s)??
