AllAccess Folo For Monday

Just a couple of items to pick up:

* As first reported on OMW, Canton market CHR WZKL/92.5 “Q92” officially anoints night jock DeLuca as its morning drive host, starting a week from today. AllAccess reports that part-timer Igor – who may well be reading this item – will at least temporarily fill the night slot when DeLuca starts his early wake up call…

* We now have a name for the early afternoon talk show in Radio One’s urban talk radio lineup, which debuts on the company’s WERE/1300 Cleveland next Monday. It’s author Michael Eric Dyson who will fill the time on the network between Rev. Al Sharpton, and Atlanta sports talk brother duo “The Two Live Stews”. From his website bio:

“Dr. Michael Eric Dyson is the author of Is Bill Cosby Right?, The Michael Eric Dyson Reader, Open Mike; Holler If You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur; Why I Love Black Women; I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr.; Race Rules: Navigating the Color Line; Between God and Gangsta Rap; Making Malcolm: The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X; and Reflecting Black. He is the Avalon Foundation Professor in the Humanities at the University of Pennsylvania and lives in Philadelphia.”

He has some radio experience, as well…a quick Google search also turns up his commentaries on NPR’s “Tavis Smiley Show”.

There’s no word on who WERE has picked to do the station’s local morning drive show. Among the auditioners: Local sports radio/TV veteran Ronnie Duncan, and WOIO/19-WUAB/43 reporter Harry Boomer…
