Emmis Communications’ WRKS-FM NY and the D.L. Hughley Morning Show are parting ways due to reasons beyond the control of either party. “Despite our best intentions, belief in their talent and even close friendships that have developed within our building…outside factors beyond our control have necessitated that we conclude the D.L. Hughley Morning Show on KISS FM,” said SVP, Market Manager, Alex Cameron.
“Mornings will remain local on KISS FM with some familiar voices and a heavy dose of the music we’re known for…stay tuned!” said 98.7 KISS FM PD, Jill Strada.
The stand-up comedian started at the station just over a year ago, replacing Jeff Foxx, who had replaced The Tom Joyner Morning Show.
