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.

    Some of you people who stay in different cities are very fortunate and lucky to get alot of good morning and afternoon shows but the people of Houston and Columbus are not so. We loved the show in Houston and I dont know what is wrong with the market down here this is the 4th largest city in the country and we only have two station’s and one is a local rap station which is not funny at all but they are here for the community whick is great and the other is a r&b station that only has Tom Joyner and he is not that funny.I used to listen to the Mo show all the time when I work out at the gym or just sit on my patio and rest. Now in Houston it is boring with the stations. Radio One needs to realy evaluate the markets in Houston and Columbus,OH because we are suffering with great radio shows.

    When I turned on the radio and didn’t hear Mo…I didn’t listen to WRNB in the afternoon anymore. I like Lady B but how much old school can you listen to? We are in 2009.We need serious topics, some laughter and some music to keep going. Micheal Baisden and Steve Harvey are OK but not my style. Monique brought funny,crazy and pure realness. Something we all need today.

    I haven’t heard about michael B show here in the C.O. Maybe one T.V one at night when I can’t sleep. I Would try to finish dropping off my students so that I could set and hear Mo, sonney, Rodney, & others cut up. Man it would be nice if they would give them another chance. I cryied when I found out. At first I didn’t get it because of my road rage issues (Man they just can’t drive!) I looked forward to hearing them because they were my outlet. I felt like they were talking to me. I wish they could of seen the looks I got on my school bus L.M.A.O! Love Yaw!

    I just want to say that I loved the Monique show. I looked forward to that after a hard day of work. Knowing that I have someone to call if it was something on my mind. It was like getting in the car with things on your mind and they all be gone once I get home. It takes me an hour to get home. So, I needed the up lifting. Now I just throw a cd in hoping that will help. That was so wrong what was done about the show. I did not get a warning or nothing. Monique if you are reading this. I just want to say I Love You and there are people who miss your show.

    I think the station needs to rethink your cancellation and bring you back

    Monique’s topics were not ones that should have been played in the time slot given. I an not certain whose bright ideal it was to even put Monique on the air; was someone setting her up to fail? Was someone just wanting to see her make a complete butt of herself and her radio partners? Hopefully, the next time Monique won’t be so gullible and jump at everything which is put in front of her.What is really sad is regardless of how much money she makes you will never be able to take the ghetto out of her; and unfortunately that is what a lot of carcausins what to see from us; and she fell for it.

    Don’t hate – I think the Monique show was very entertaining on occassion. However I do think someone should have explained the sudden departure of Sonny Andre. However, the bottom line is – with Moniques compassion for the people she was able to touch so many lives. She allowed herself to be used and to be a light in someones dark life. If she is never on the air again in radio, she has served her purpose. As we all know, seasons change. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of Monique.

    Shame on all of you negative people. If you didn’t like the show, there was a simple solution- don’t listen. The show was my 3pm saving grace and sanity. Sure they were a bit ‘hood’ at times, but that was half the charm. Granted I never understood why individuals were referred to as “board of director”, rather than simply a director. Nonetheless, we knew what they were talking about. The show definitely helped breakup the monotony of accounting. Oh well, on the upside I’ve been able to listen to NPR :~Z

    OMG, I cannot believe there is no more Monique. There was no notice on WRNB in Philadelphia that she was going off the air. They just changed their format. I stopped listening to them at 3 p.m. because Lady B is just too GHETTO for me. Monique was funny and inspirational. I was able to listen to her online but now there is nothing. It is a sad day that positive shows are canceled and you are forced to listen to crap. I use to like the Baisden show but he is too damn depressing and always putting people down if they don’t agree with his ignorant opinions. Don’t give up Monique, you have a gift to make people feel better. Keep moving forward. People united together can make a difference and not follow what a small group tries to enforce. If everyone that has posted a comment truly feels that way about Monique then everyone needs to boycott their radio stations and TURN THEM OFF!!!

    Hey Mo, it is certainly too quite and boring around here at 3:00 PM in the afternoon on the Radio 98.9 here in Columbus, Ohio. We certainly miss you, your crew and your show and all the realness that you brought with you to the tabel. No one dose reality like you Mo! You,your crew, Ms. Kim, your comedian Co-host Rodney, Kady K,and the Board of Directors certainly put your cards on the tabel and that is what life is all about. Dealing with the cards you are givin, and making the best out of all four Aces. Using you imagination, and thinking out side the box for the rest of the deck, to make life work out as best as you can. This is the lessons you taught in your show. We know you are going to move on to bigger and better things MO, because that is who you are and what you are made of. You are a survivor just like me. You have certainly been an inspiration to many, a voice for those who would normaly not be heard,and you offered counsel,advice to those who had no one to advise them by bringing in your professionals such as Les Brown, President Obama, Cornel West, and a host of other educators and entertainers to assist you and your crew in questions and answers that maybe you did not have. And that ‘s what we do, surround ourselves with those who have answers that we may not have. You ran a great Gamut of a Show Mo, the distance or extent between possible extremes is the range you ran for the time you were given .The people are going to miss you and so am I. I do wish you well in all your new endevors. Good luck with your family and the rest of your journey. You are bless with the leadership and companionship of your Savvy, inteligent, analytical thinking, charismatic,husband” Sidney” who seems to still have chivalry when it come to knowing how to treat his lovely wife and family. He also compliments you very well as your mate. Mo, you have a gift to be able to communicate with many types of personalities in any given social setting, kepp grwowing,and you have been blessed, and lucky in doing so. You have came a long ways and we love and miss you. Please let me know how you are doing. keep on climing to the top, keeping the faith. Forget about those hypercrital, judgemental, arrogant, obnoxious people and flack that you will receive from this new temporary status. And that is what it is (temporary). This happen stance is a stepping stone for bigger and better things coming your way. You are a down to earth real lady, then all of your other attributes fall in place and we are proud of you. Good Luck in your new endevors and dreams, and God Bless. Continue to visualize your goals, execute your plan, and keep on making it happen! Board of Director Ms. Anna Williams. I was the lady in Columbus, Ohio the frist day you were on broadcasting on the radio who you let me anounced my business “Errands By Anna” A Personal Assistant Service over The Radio a small advertisement.
    Thanks for being there!

    All The best Mo,

    102.3-DC. I found out yesterday that Monique’s show was cancelled. I enjoyed (toggled between her and Michael Baisden). I am also a fan of her comedy, although I am not a ‘phat girl’ – she’s loud & proud. We need more laughter in this world and ‘being silly & funny’ from time to time never hurt nobody. I hope to see/hear her again in the future.

    Okay…I am totally devastated. What…when…where, WHY…HOW??? I am not sure WHY Moniq’s show was cancelled – but I’m SURE it has to do with the fact that somebody can’t deal with “truth” and openess. As it has once been said…”you will KNOW the truth…and the TRUTH…will set you free! And somebody didn’t like that fact that “we” were being set free. Moniq’s show was a afternoon delight for me, and I looked forward to listening to her candidness, and at the same time, here sensitive and non-judgemental approach to the concerns of her “board of directors”. There’s a lot I don’t know in this life..but ONE thing I do know – I WON’T be listening to Magic 102.1 in the afternoon anymore. Boring as hell without Moniq’.

    I hate they cancelled the show. I actually liked it and thought it was very funny. Even though I didn’t like it on Fridays when she had Sidney on, I liked the format of the show. I didn’t listen to it on Friday so I didn’t know it got cancelled until I read MediaTakeOut. The show will definitely be missed in Houston. Now I’ll nothing to listen to in the afternoons. It sucks here in Houston because there aren’t many black radio stations or shows to listen to. And I do agree with everyone about Sonny Andre. I liked him better. Rodney was funny but he did cut people off which I thought was rude. Kim, in my opinion, was classy and I luved Monique. I wish them nothing but the best.

    DON’T BE FOOLED! I totally agree with HTownGirl. I too live in Houston and I loved the show (AT FIRST) but from what I heard from another radio personality was that Mo’Nique was the reason why Sonny got fired, so that’s why there was NO explanation. She felt that he was upstaging her so she asked for a new co-host. He brought calmness and balance to that chaotic mess of a show, but that’s where she went wrong if this is true. But if my memory serves me correctly, hasn’t he been in radio for like 20 years??? She could have learned so much from him, but she thinks she knows it all! And I never understood “bathroom talk” what the crap??? (haa haaaaaaaaa that!) Loosing Sonny was the biggest mistake ever! But maybe it was his blessing in disguise. Rodney WAS and IS NOT FUNNY, he was rude as hell to callers and all that crying she did was annoying. I stopped listening months ago and everybody that I know here in Houston did the same. I was routing for the show because there are only TWO doggone stations here in big @#$& HOUSTON!!!! I know that she wanted to come across as real, but REALLY she’s a fake and a phony. All this time she dragged for skinny women and now she’s “getting healthy”??? okay, like we’re stupid or something…heifer you’re getting skinny! And to hear her on Friday (3/13/09 date of departure, thank ya!)try to justify why she doesn’t shave those grizzly bear-ish legs was a joke in itself! She may not want to conform to Hollyweird and that’s fine, but heck conform to being a woman. Sophisticated and well kept! Y’all know that crap was ri-dam-diculous!!!! And didn’t she get on Fred (the owner of MediaTakeout) for talking about her hairy legs on his website???? Can you say…..Hypocrite? I am sooooo glad the show is gone!! I wish to Moses we got Michael Baisden down here. Houston radio stations SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate it here.

I wonder if this has anything to do with her being a sister.One of the black male air personalities who has a show, should be taken off the air….but I won’t mention the name…..He’s certainly isn’t that articulate…..I wish the sister well.

Rodney Perry did his best but he just didn’t do a good job. He was rude to the callers and he made fun of a lot of people. That wasn’t nice at all. I think that brought the ratings down tremendously.

    I was completely shocked to hear that the Monique Show was cancelled. I so looked forward to hearing her show after a long day of work. I especially LOVED the Bathroom Talk with her & Sidney!! Their love and respect for one another just ooozed through the radio for me, and I so loved it. With the Beautiful Love we have in the White House, and then to have it on the air . . . It was so refreshing and encouraging to witness. Nothing against M. Baisden, just some days his show is just too much to take when trying to unwind. I know God is the architect for our lives and he has GREAT things outlined for Monique & Crew. God Bless!!

    I truly will miss the Monique show. I have a long commute home and loved to listen to her inspirational topics. I started listening to her show since she started when I was going through the biggest challenge of my life. I have listened to her throughout and I swear the times when I really needed to hear some things she came through. She spoke to me and helped me see things and change me to be a better person. For that I thank her. She does not know what she has done to touch my life and if I never get the chance to meet her I want her to know now that I thank her. She truly is a beautiful woman, that god has shined on and she has a lot to share with the world. God put her on the air for a reason, and I am living proof of why. Thank you Monique from the bottom of my heart for all that you have shared and given to the world.

    Monique is funny but she is way too emotional. I’m in Cinciinati and I guess this is her last show on right now and they’re all crying!!! That’s just crazy!!! She can get another show or do stand up she’s funnty as hell!!! But when they do that opening “The Monique Show… HA HA!!” I turn the station every time!!! I know I’m not the only person that couldn’t stand that!! MONIQUE… Do an internet radio show through your website!!! LOVE YOU!!

    I was devastated when I heard that Monique was canceled. Her show was real not rehearsed and she always hit home with all her topics. I guess I’ll be listening to her online now. Luv ya Mo.

    Monique did too much talking on her show, about nothing. I really didn’t like her show, but I gave her a chance. Seeing the things Mo touched in the past, I know that show could have been better. She needs to get with Steve Harvey, his show is the best.

    I’m sorry but dropping Monique was a mistake. I used to listen to Wendy but her show thrived on negativity so I had to stop. I enjoyed listening to Mo and would alternate between her and Baisden. I had a friend visiting from NC and she was so taken with the positivity of Mo’s show. Like someone else posted, we get more than enough of the music, hearing the same songs everyday. Ah well,
    WRNB, I still listen in the morning but other than that, my radio’s off.

    I didn’t mean she was going to fail. But she was set UP to fail
    being opposite and having the same time slot. Who’s bright idea was that?

    I usually lisened to both Micheal
    and Mo. I liked the diversity of the of the two host,but I could never understand why she was put
    head to head with Micheal Baisden.
    Looks like she was set to fail!

    I am sick and tired of MoNique and Mike Basden. All they do is run their mouths about absolute nonsense. PLEASE! PLEASE! take these clowns off the radio and put the MUSIC BACK!!!

    Iam so glad to hear that the people of Philly, woke up to this nonsense radio show. What has happen to radio PLAYING MUSIC?

    I admired monique for her creativity and style. She has personality but it seems to be for sale. I enjoyed the first week of her show but it went to trash after that. I liked the show on teenage pregnacy when people called in with real ideas and help. We don’t need help with trach Mo. You were so all over the place that no one knows who you are anymore. Letting Sony Go? Bad move. You’ve got so much. Take a stand for something. You lost ground with that all over the place show.

    I am shocked about the decision to cancel Monique’s show. Apparently someone is trying to do 105.3 a favor. I had gotten hooked on the show. The drive home time is talk radio time and not ordinary music time. I hope every chance was given to the show. The station has lost me as a devoted listener.

    Monique was hilarious. Just what Philly needed. Now it’s back to boredom with out her. Truely gifted woman get no respect.
    Lady B? Pleez ;-( I don’t think so!

    Monique is sweet, but that show needs sonny andre, her new co-host is not funny, he insults the listeners. sonny balanced the show he was not a comedian, now you have monique and rodney perry competing for laughs, wake up Mo…

    bring back SONNY

    It’s tragic that Monique in the afternoon show had been cancelled here in Philly!!! That show often uplifts my spirits when my day and current world wasn’t so bright. Monique medicine in the form of compassion with a big dose of laughter will be missed!!

    Mo must have had quite an impact in Philly in a short time…positive and negative. This story has gotten more response on this site than Wendy Williams and Opie and Anthony.

    Mo was and is always funny but never quite had the right co-host…. Neither added that something special and I belive turned listeners off… Sorry Mo… I’m going to miss you in Philly!

    I will truly miss Mo, she was very funny and also compassionate. If your bringing Lady B back at 3:00 please let her play the sounds she is known for, makes me dance while sitting in my car and cooking at home.

    Walt,

    I was thinking the same thing. She could not compete with M. Baisden. He is a powerful force (like him or not) in afternoons, and he has been on the radio for more than 5 years, so it he has already captured a very large, diverse audience. I saw this coming. Good luck Monique, with whatever you do!

    face it folks…the ratings werent there. Mo’s funny but she couldnt compete with Micheal Baisden

    Wow. I just found out from a friend yesterday. I hadn’t had a chance to catch her show much this week, and wasn’t aware that she was gone. That had to be the shortest lived radio program ever. I don’t think that she was on in Philadelphia for a year, but I could be wrong.

    I kinda stop listening to The Monique Show when Sonny Andre left; I love Monique the person, but she needed Sonny Andre on that show; Rodney Perry was not cutting it. Oh well, I’m a huge fan of Lady B. I guess I’ll bounce between Lady B and Michael Baisden Show.

    All I want to say is this was a very very bad move. Not only discontinuing Monique but you decided to limit Laby B to 90’s music. I want to sleep when I listen to your station. BORING. I am so disappointed.

    Well I’ll start bringing my CDs with me on my way home from work…..I like Lady B but she is not Monique. I will really miss her. In for the record I’m done with the Philly radio stations

    It took me a while to get into Mo’s show, but, being a fan of Mo’s other ventures, I gave it some time and patience. Result: I found the show to be very capable in terms of empowering it’s targeted listeners. Opinion: Bad business move! What’s more, I suspect the decision to go 90s and Today will prove damaging to listenership. I won’t listen as much. I was absolutely committed to WRNB’s evening programming, looking forward to all old school, not merely the 90s.

You all should really reconsider putting Mrs. Monique back for she will be truely missed by alot of her fans. Mrs. Mo keep your head up and continue to be blessed. love ya

    This is truly a travesty and Syndication One seriously needs to reevaluate their decision to cancel this phenomenal show. Not only was it a source of entertainment, it was also a source of information, imagination, encouragement,empowerment, and much needed laughter on the down-slope of the workday for so many people. Mo’Nique fostered a sense of community in her “no-judgment zone” that has been equaled by very few others in radio. Bad decision, Syndication One. Guess I’ll start bringing my CDs to work with me because there’s not much to look forward to on the radio anymore.

    I also crashed my car when I turned on my radio and there was no Mo’Nique. First, Wendy Williams and now Mo. Some of us here enough of the same old music which is constantly looped thru out the day. Those deep sometimes funny conversations was something I looked forward too. I will truely miss my Mo.
