Miss Jones: Another Radio Gig Gone

Comments (58)

By Karu F. Daniels, BlackVoices.com



They say when it rains, it pours.

Right about now, no one can know that more than controversial radio personality Miss Jones – whom it was recently discovered was let go of another high profile radio gig.

After exiting her top-rated spot on New York City's hip-hop station Hot 97 (WQHT-FM) on July 3 -- where she was replaced by popular Los Angeles personality Big Boy – her show was abruptly cut from the lineup of Philadelphia's The Beat (WPHI-FM) on Aug. 4.

Her show has been replaced by 'The Morning Beat' -- an all-music morning show on the Radio One-owned station.



While the Astoria, Queens- raised shock jock and former Motown Records singer could not be reached for comment, The Beat's Operations Manager Elroy R. C. Smith bid her adieu. "I would like to wish Miss Jones and her team all the best!," he told an industry trade media outlet last week.

"Until further notice or until we find that undeniable morning show, we are moving in a more music direction," Smith continued. "This is another way of us responding to the primary need of the young audience that music is the star!"

Miss Jones, legally known as Tarsha Nicole Jones, recently made national headlines when she was named in a federal lawsuit as a target for a hit by her rival Wendy Williams' husband/manager Kevin Hunter.

Williams' former talent booker/intern/publicist Nicole Spence alleged that Hunter plotted to kill Jones for bad mouthing his wife on the air.

In her memoir, 'Have You Met Miss Jones Lately' – released last year via publishing giant Random House – Jones harshly criticized Williams for being "insecure," "transparent" and "so dramatic."

"In her position, she should be professionally riding the wave as a leader of the pack or sharing the torch gracefully, knowing she will get love from young ones like myself who desire mentorship," Jones said. "Wendy wants to not only hold on to the torch, but also crush anyone who dares to have aspirations for success. Her justification has always been: 'I'm not helping nobody, because nobody helped me."
