If you’re wondering what former popular Atlanta radio personality, Frank Ski, has been up to, since leaving V-103 (he couldn’t come to an agreement with V-103 last December after 14 years on that station), we’ve got the details. AJC reports that this week, the Harlem native (who spent years on Baltimore radio) is trying out to fill an afternoon slot at 96.3/WHUR-FM in Washington, DC. As you’ll recall, Michael Baisden abruptly left the station over a contract dispute with his syndicator last month. Instead of filling his space, the Howard University commercial station has chosen to open the slot for different radio pros, by invitation only, calling it ‘Washingtons Next Big Voice‘.
If Frank Ski doesn’t get the gig, we assume he’ll continue with other business ventures, including his popular ATL restaurant, along with some dabbling in the wine industry.
Here’s part of the bio they posted:
Frank Ski, former host of top-rated morning show at Atlanta-based radio station V-103 (CBS affiliate), a position held for 14 years (1998 – 2012). But take a look beyond the radio station and you’ll find somewhat of a renaissance man, whose accomplishments and interests are as broad and intriguing as the many subjects he covers every day. With an ever-growing list of talents, Frank Ski is a well-known journalist, producer and DJ, actor, motivational speaker, tireless philanthropist and most importantly – a husband to wife Tanya and father to four boys. Born in Harlem and reared in Miami, Frank continues to transcend barriers of race, creed and culture.
What do you think about Frank Ski’s potential move? Would he be a good fit to fill Michael Baisden’s radio shoes?
