The Tom Joyner Morning Show has returned to the Atlanta market on Radio One’s new Classic R&B Classix 102.9 (WUMJ HD2), bookending the DL Hughley Show in the afternoons. Longtime market veteran Mitch Faulkner joins Radio One Atlanta as the local producer of Tom Joyner Morning Show and will also host his highly rated Classic RnB Show Saturdays from 7-midnight.
“I’m proud to join the team at Radio One Atlanta,” Faulkner said. “Classix 102.9 plays the music I grew up with and it’s refreshing to work with a company that ‘gets’ Urban radio — and they do it right! Plus, to work with a management team I’ve known and watched over the years, I feel this year will be the best of my career.”
Tim Davies, RVP/GM of Radio One Atlanta, said, “The response to the DL Hughley Show has been great over the past two weeks. Now, with Tom Joyner in the mornings, Mitch Faulkner’s community connection and our fresh RnB, it’s like a one-two-three punch for our listeners and advertisers… and a perfect complement to our amazing cluster.”
