Former Atlanta Radio Host Makes DRASTIC Move


 width=Perhaps there is something to be said about all the layoffs in the industry… only the strong and the WISE survive… Congrats to former Atlanta Hot 107.9/Radio One host on his new gig… Radio One canned ’s A-Team morning show and replaced it with the syndicated Rickey Smiley’s Morning show. But has a new opportunity…

Auckland ,  NZ  – Atlanta-based comedian and radio host “GRIFF” is taking his unforgettable voice  to the international airways as a guest on  The Edge Morning Madhouse, a syndicated morning show broadcast from Auckland , New Zealand .

After meeting “GRIFF” this summer at an international summit for popular morning show radio hosts, the Morning Madhouse team invited “GRIFF” to join them on-air and give the citizens of New Zealand a taste of Atlanta.

The Edge Morning Madhouse team consists of Jay-Jay, Mike and Dom; and the hilarious trio is known for  over-the-top stunts, like most recently ‘pool crashing’ at someone’s private home. “It’s refreshing to be on-air in another country because it’s made me realize that  comedy is  comedy,  no matter where you go,” said “GRIFF.” “This morning show team is high-energy, fun and creative and I anticipate representing  Atlanta well and having a great time while I’m here.”

“GRIFF,” known for his quick wit and hard-hitting punchlines, will provide the expert yet comedic commentary  on everything from American culture, to news, sports and music.
