The Power of Oprah

Steve Harvey done been on Oprah twice giving women advice and promoting his best selling advice book "Act Like A Lady/Think Like A Man" and now his radio show that has been broadcasting on WGCI has replaced Tom Joyner's morning show in Chicago on V103. The reason this is such a serious situation is that Tom Joyner has been on in Chicago for 16 years and is the flagship station for the Tom Joyner Morning Show. AND what is crazy is that V103 and WGCI will both be broadcasting the Steve Harvey show until WGCI gets a new morning show. DAAYUM. Tom Joyner must feel like hot shit. But he says very nicely....

"We always say that when we come back from vacation something big has either happened or is about to happen. Well, this one topped them all. After 16 years, the Tom Joyner Morning Show won’t be broadcast on a local Chicago radio station, at this time. For Sybil and me, our relationship with the Chicago radio listeners goes back more than 20 years and believe me it has not ended by any stretch of the imagination.

Friends and family in the Chicago market will continue to listen to the Party with a Purpose on www.BlackAmericaWeb.com . So this isn’t the end, it’s just a change.

Even though we’re heard in more than 100 markets around the country, Chicago is home, it’s the Mother Ship, the Flagship, all those words that mean it is the place that launched the TJMS. It’s where we came from and where we always could go back to. And we’re still there, just in a different way—for now! We’ve had great times in Chicago and we’ll be there soon to officially thank the thousands and thousands of you who made us what we are, and will be here with us as we take this to another level. We got where we are by knowing who you are, what you want and by Super Serving our audience, just like my mentor John H. Johnson taught me to do. This world is changing but the doing the right thing never does, and we will continue to do what we’ve always done for the African American Community."

Can't be mad at Steve for gettin his upgrade on but seriously, OPRAH PLEASE ADOPT ME. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

In my personal opinion, Steve Harvey is not funny, at all. It is torcher to here him on one radio station let alone two. The owners of WGCI and V103 are becoming notorious for firing Chicago's long running radio personalities and not giving the listeners a warning or even allowing the personalities to say goodbye to their listerners. Some of the listerners are finding it distasteful and disrepectful and are planning on boycotting the two stations. I stopped listening to the morning show on WGCI when Howard McGee was abruptly replaced by Steve Harvey. Tom Joyner is a legend in Chicago and he should have been treated as such. Just like Macy's didn't fly when it replaced Marshall Field's, Steve Harvey is not going to fly on two radio stations, even if its only for a couple of weeks.

yeah, WGCI is falling off. one day i was listening to Mike Love and the Diz say they had been on the air together for like 10 years, next thing i know Mike Love is gone! and even though the SHMS has there moments, Shirley's laugh is so damn annoying, I can't stand it! and the way they all suck up to Steve, ugh. If they get rid of Beyonce Fox, WGCI is gonna have a riot on their hands, lol
