  1. This was the worst decision WJIZ could have made. Just watch to see what your rating will be in the morning. Everybody I have talked to hates the Ricky Smiley show. It is so horrible I can’t stand to turn the radio on. I use to love listening to Big Boi in the morning. Haven’t you all heard if it’s not broke don’t fix it or change it?
