After 98.7 Kiss FM goes off air- Michael Baisden Starts Petition to Get His Show on WBLS
‘Buffoonery Over Activism: Do we really prefer music and jokes over content?’ – Michael Baisden
*With the big radio changes going down in New York between WRKS (KISS FM) and WBLS, Michael Baisden and Tom Joyner find themselves to be the odd-men out (at KISS FM). But Baisden is trying to do something about it.
Baisden, who was recently dropped from KISS FM after ESPN took over the station, is now petitioning to have his show added to WBLS. Clearly he wants the listening public to know of his plight and help him get back on the air on WBLS.
Check out his statement below:
After I received the devastating news on Thursday that 98.7 Kiss FM in New York was taking my show off and going to an all-sports format, I thought to myself: who is going to sound the alarm in New York when the next Jena 6 happens–or Trayvon Martin–or Presidential election? And who’s going to promote mentoring to save our children, and talk about domestic violence, and child molestation? When you come up with a radio personality’s name who can be trusted to consistently and passionately address these issues on mainstream FM radio, please let me know.
