Cumulus’ 103.9 New York Makes Changes


New York’s Cumulus radio station 103.9 that carries Tom Joyner and DL Hughley made some changes yesterday due to budget cuts.  Midday talent La Loca was released along with part-time on air talent Roxie, Terry Bello, production Director Ghost, Miste Cee and some of the  traffic staff and others.. Raphael George, Marc Clark, Toya Beasley and Mike Shannon are still employed at the station. We will keep you posted of any more changes.

CEO of RF Focus, Radio and Music Industry Veteran. Radio DJ, Programmer, Musician and Voice Talent. Graduated from Performing Arts in Buffalo, N.Y. and worked at the legendary KKBT (92.3 The Beat) during its nationwide heyday in the early 90s. Also worked for Stevie Wonder at KJLH.


  1. That’s weak. Mr. Cee shaped your format for the weekends & gave a good variety option with the Throwback @ Noon.. La Loca made you want to listen & talk back to your own radio. I hope the budget cuts are used to better the airwave frequency!!!

  2. Is this the same reason why J. Anthony walked off the morning show even though he is now back? His paycheck was cut without notice and it wasn’t the first time; allegedly?

    But to get rid of La Loca and Mister Cee!! They are the while reason why I listened to 103.9!! The morning and afternoon and Saturday evening mix. If this is the case, I don’t see your station lasting as long. Good luck!!

    You aren’t any different than most television networks or certain new businesses. You put forward your best people to draw an audience and once you’ve got loyal patrons and listeners, you then pull the plug on them.

    Get them back!!!!

  3. Good morning; two things, where is DJ, King Tut, and what is the spelling of your news man Mo laytin? Is he the former basketball player?

  4. I guess I’m in the minority. Not glad to see folks lose their income but La Loca was annoying and I hated the weekend format…too much Hip Hop. I wish them well but won’t miss La Loca.

  5. You need to being La Loca back and change the weekend format to like is was when 1st started R&B and Dance or Disco.

  6. I agree Laloca kept it real and inspirational!,
    Mister Cee was a great partner with her!
    Budget cuts? Remove Mike Shannon he’s great on xm radio ..he has a dream job,there is one spot right there!
    Weekend needs the R&B back in the evening at least!
    This station has a great lineup and chemistry..don’t loose it!
    Listen to your listeners!
