There’s sad news on the home front this week for V103. After almost a week of behind the scenes drama poppin off at Atlanta’s most popular urban radio statio, it looks like its ‘dueces’ for Producer of “The Frank Ski & Wanda Morning Show,” Nina Brown.
Listen I don’t know what happened exactly. Apparently there was a battle over some pie from a holiday pot luck that was the catalyst for Nina and V103 personality Elle Duncan, which resulted in an on air spat, that everybody heard.
I’ve been on my deathbed for more then a week so I wasn’t able to go out and get the “juice” like I normally do. Plus, I’m a bit conflicted seeing as though I have genuine love for both Nina & Elle, who basically started out around the same time as me back in the day.
Luckily for all the nosy people out there Rodney Ho at the AJC got the scoop:
UPDATE at 9:59 p.m.:I have now heard that Brown is no longer at the station. And that the argument had something to do with some left-over pot-luck sweet potato pie. Seriously!
Duncan was off the air for about a week in what appears to be a suspension and returned this morning to the Frank and Wanda morning show, where she has been reporting sports and entertainment the past few months. Previously, she has been a mid-day host (her spot has yet to be filled) and before that, Cameron’s sidekick in the afternoons.
Duncan’s boss and V-103 general manager Rick Caffey declined to comment, per company policy.
Brown declined to comment. Duncan did not respond to text messages..
On a personal note this news is so sad. Both women are intelligent, articulate, hard working individuals who have both done AMAZING things with their careers. And while I understand emotions and all that can overflow and become a liability at times, its heartbreaking to see this go down in such a manner right before the holidays.
Sometimes we all just need to calm down and look at the bigger picture, or hell just walk away period. At the end of the day high school squabbles should be left there.. in High School.
Until Next Time…
