The Mo’Nique Show Exits Philadelphia
Buried in the middle of a simple format adjustment story out of Philadelphia is the news that Syndication One afternoon talent Mo’Nique has been cancelled. Radio One owned WRNB announced a shift from the traditional Urban AC format to one that focuses on the “R&B of the 90′s and Today” while installing market veteran Lady B as the afternoon talent replacing the syndicated Mo’Nique. Since launching last summer the show has lost two major markets, Los Angeles at KDAY and now Philadelphia. The show has proved to be less than Arbitron PPM friendly and could see even more attrition soon.
