Syndication One Ends The Mo’Nique Show

After less than a year, the Mo’Nique Show has been cancelled by Syndication One. Details are still coming in but the handwriting was on the wall when after a much heralded debut on KDAY Los Angeles, the show was removed after just four months due to a format shift. The same senario happened in Philadelphia in January leaving the show with less than seven affiliates. Arbitron’s  PPM methodology has not been kind to talk heavy personalities  on Urban music stations, particularly those outside of morning drive leaving new shows like Mo’Nique less time to develop and viagra shop in a precarious situation.

  1. (I am quite disappointed that Monique is cancelled. I enjoyed the show and quest. It is a show that I can relate to and laugh also in our state of sad economy. I have basically stopped watching BET except for Berney mack show. When you take that off I am cancelled. You can cancel that 106 and park, I do not allow my grands to watch that show. Your shows are not well-rounded. I sure miss BOB JOHNSON!!!

  2. Being from monique’s hometown of Baltimore,Maryland… I feel very disappointed that things couldn’t work out for Monique… She will be truly missed by alot of people, because she was so real(thats a Bmore thing)Monique i love you and everything that you stand for.. which is EXCELLENCE!!!!!!! in the words of Jamie Foxx… MAKE IT DO WHAT IT DO BABY!!!!

  3. To be quite honest, I really didn’t care for her. I was surprised when she got her own talk show. She to me really shown a different side to herself when she was the host for the long running talent show, Apollo back in the early 2000′s, as you can see after she went out for maternity leave, they really couldn’t find another host to take her spot, they tried Sinbad, who hosted the show back in the 90′s then.Whoppi Goldberg, but after they tried that, they ended the show. She just wasn’t funny to me anymore, since she really found stardom on UPN’s The Parker, went off the air. But, I am not surprised at this, I think it was indeed coming towards her. Hope Wendy Williams hangs in there, cause she is the only black talk show we have left, Oprah, has finished her show.and now reruns of that is on, and her own network right now, but Arsenio has been gone since the early 90′s, and Montel is gone, so the only person that is holding on for now is indeed Wendy. Just remember, talk shows dont stay on forever, its just her time to go, I guess.

  4. I cannot believe that a show that is so relevant to what is going on in the world today, the amount of lives touched and the opportunity for artists to sit on her couch and tell their stories behind the stories – where is the justice??? I feel a Game moment coming on. It is time for all who loved the show to take a stand. She’s got my vote. What about you???

  5. i am from st.lucia and the facted that miss monique was called i don`t appricate it the threat the people are taking miss monique for is just a useless excrise i don`t blame your`ll i feel sorry for you`ll and that shame because as we look up to her as a mother,a friend,a sister and so much more it hurts your`ll that it can not be that way with your`ll here`s an advis get a ladder and get off miss monique and get one and try to get the level get besides her not under her. your`ll damn asses

  6. The Monique show was a show that BLACK women and men needed somewhere to talk about problems and get advise from the board of directors.
    SHE’S A RACIST BITCH!!!FUCK HER AND THAT UGLY SHOW STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!WHAT A PUSSY…BEFORE SHE CAN HOST A SHOW MAYBE U SM1 SHOULD TELL HER THAT HER HUSBAND IS CHEATING ON HER CUZ SHE DOESNT SHAVE!!!BITCH

  7. I Love Monique, she is beautiful inside,& out! The battle was not her’s it belongs to the lord! The Lord Thy God has justified her. He will choose who he want to let his light shine BRIGHT in. Some can’t relate how BRIGHT HER light is, it blinds them. Just accept the Gift.

  8. Y it had to b Monique show she a black women just starting up her show in now y’all white or any black people want to can. Her show that fuc up monique don’t give up it going to b somepeople who want that show back on

  9. I think its a shame that Monique is gone. That’s not okay, they just cant handle a strong black women like Monique.

  10. I am so glad this show is canceled and I’m hoping we’re talking about her BET show. Monique’s ignorance is not funny. If any of you find that it is, then you are just as embarassing as she. Monique does not represent black women well at all with that filthy mouth of hers. The yelling and screaming is way off the mark and unnecessary. Grow up already!

  11. BlackCowboy, You’re pathetic! Why do you feel the need to try to degrade Monique by calling her a 300+ porker? You must not love yourself! Monique, I watch your television show and I appreciate the energy you bring as well as the consistent encouragement and compassion you show your guests and all of us. Continue to do you! Don’t worry about the haters. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!! Thank you for all you give. I love you!

  12. Who care about that 300+ porker????

  13. Dear Mo

    Crown Heights Affair is putting together a reunion tour. I am sure that their fans would like to know more. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you in advance for your time.

  14. Hey Mo I love you. Can’t wait for your TV show so I can see you live and in color. One closes and another one opens.

    Im still trying to figure out what happen to Sonny Andrey!!

  15. Hello Monique.
    I check the news every now and then trying to find out what happened to the show and I am completely amazed at the topics considered news in America. In the midst of corrupt business people who costs hundreds of thousands of people their retirement or savings accounts; racism; blatant discrimination; and down right evil in this world; why would a show that lifted people up and gave them a real reason to laugh from their gut be something unworthy of continuation? Monique, you saved me from road rage, a bad attitude when I arrived home, and gave me something to laugh out loud about and I just want to say thank you!! I don’t know what you’re doing or why those idiots who cancelled your show refused to allow you a proper goodbye or some reasoning for your shows cancellation; but I hope you told them what so many of us want to say to them face to face. I have every movie you’ve ever made and I look forward to the next thing, but for now; Phat Girlz continues to touch me in a real place.

    A fan

  16. I am very upset that The Monique Show has ben cancelled. This was one of the most realist talk shows around that talked about real life everyday situations. For people that needed counseling and could not afford it,just listened to Monique and one way or another there questions were answered. Hopefully there will be some reconsideration to put her back on the air.

  17. Speak for yourself everyone from Columbus, Ohio that said they miss the show because I sure don’t the radio is for music not for people to air their dirty laundry. The Mo’nique show was HORRIBLE AND GHETTO. I am so happy now I can go back to listening to music and not people’s problems who need counseling. Nobody on that station had a degree or good advice. Everyone who looked to that show for advice get a LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!…Tom Joyner has done way more positive things for blacks than Mo’nique EVER HAS

  18. REAL ASS HATERS; I NEVER KNEW WHAT U MOTHERFUCKING HATERS COULD HATE ON. ALL YOU FUCKING HATERS NEED A LIFE, OR BETTER YET A JOB?

  19. Columbus,OH misses the Monique Show and now afternoon radio is dead on 98.9. The old school mix doesn’t play enough of the songs I’d like to hear and waaaaay to many commercials! Bring back our pulse please the show was fresh,new,and exciting period!!!!!

    P.S. for all of those socially conscious you got Tavis Smiley Fri evening 90.5 and Tom Pope 103.1/106.7 afternoon. We as blacks can laugh and fun toooo!!!!

  21. The show was okay, but nothing I could listen to on the ride home with my kids in the car. Sorry Mo.

  22. wow!!i now know monique was cancelled. I also went to listen to her one day, there was no monique, rodney and well I cant remember the other ladies name but i thought “they must be on vacation” then weeks went by. I have to disagree with the negative comments about monique, I enjoyed her she was funny and entertaining and sincere in my opinion. Her standup comedy is not that funny to me but Mo on the parkers and on 102.3 YOU WERE THE BOMB! I hope you and Rodney come back Monique, I have no clue who Sonny is but sounds like he was great on the show as well.

  23. jlynn: STOP THE LIES. The Obama daughers Malia & Natasha aint listen 2 her trash.

    Im glad she is gone. ALVIN JOHN WAPLES IS BETTER !

    Sasha and Malia listened to her at the White House. Wonder who they listening to now.

  24. I’m sorry but her show was so good, and I miss it I listened faithfully every day at 3pm in Columbus oh I hate that they took her off the air. I barely listen anymore to that station, I wish yous would bring her back.

  25. Also, true to my word, I no longer listen to MOJO 100.3 at 3 pm. I tried to listen a couple of times, but it was so boring,5 minutes of music and 10 minutes of commercials. I have a better music selection with just the CDs I have in my car and at home than they play. They could play some jazz, which is relaxing(for all you folks trying to wind down) and at the same time upbeat, and would sound better than the endless commercials that the haters listen to, because they certainly do not play much music. Not everybody is trying to go to sleep on the way home from work, some of us are just going to work! Monique’s show, although was not always appropriate subject material, most of the time was funny. I agree with the person that mentioned Sidney should have been left off the show and an explanation in a professional manner should have been given to the listening audience regarding Sonny Andre.

  26. Jeffrey, this is for you. I loved reading your very, intelligent response to all of the haters regarding Tom Joyner. These people see some of themselves in Monique and Tom Joyner and some of the topics discussed, and didn’t want to be reminded of the skeletons they or their friends have safely hidden away in their expensive closets.

  27. The show was entirely too ghetto. Sorry, but can we have better representation on the airwaves. We’re going backwards not forward.

  28. I am SO GLAD SHE IS GONE! She was on 102.3 in MD. MO nique is cool but her voice is annoying.

    So glad she is gone now ALVIN JOHN WAPLES is back here he belongs! They [102.3] shouldnt have bumped him in the 1st place!

  29. So the Monique show is gone. Wow, so many viewers and so many haters its a wonder it was able to keep afloat as long as it did? I personally found the show to be different and it was diametrically opposite of the garbage that I have to endure on the AM side such as Chris Baker, Rush Limbaugh and Hannity and Cole. They spew filth about President Obama and they have thousands of listeners and sponsors for them to say harmful things and flat out lies. Reality is how one perceives their role. Regretfully, Monique was a side road not often taken. She did not take herself seriously but looked at the world from a different perspective. She supported our president and though her topics were as some of you would say are crude it reached a primal part of all of us. No matter how rich we are with material wealth we can not buy the answers to some of lifes questions and things you always wanted to know she was not afraid to explore. Alas, being the true crabs in a barrel you all are we have demonized her and are now after Tom Joyner. Though he does many wonderful things for the Black community some of you want his head also. So let me pose two questions for those haters. One, since he contributes so much to HBCs for those who are bourgeois those are Historically Black Colleges and Universities who is going to step into the gap and provide the financial support he has? Come on haters open up your purses and wallets now and if you can stand in the gap then God bless you if not leave him alone. Question two, though Blacks are a conglomeration of races and tribes and people why are we still at war with ourselves even after weathering SLAVERY, RECONSTRUCTION, CIVIL RIGHTS AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION? As it has been said,”A person without knowledge of himself is like a tree without roots”

  30. hey mo i really miss you so much is there anyway we can get in contact with you. you have alot of wisdon and knowledge. you gave us the best advice ever my God continue to bless you and your family

    love you mo

    nekeiya

  31. Stations have so many of the same shows on all the time, and you final get one that is different that actually breaks the mold and you drop it. I guess this station is like news – they dont want to here about making us (americans) better as a people. They rather here us talk shit all day.

  32. We here in DC miss your show.

  33. That’s a damn shame to cut my girl off like that!! Mo show grew on me and gave me much laughter as well as inspiration. She was real in all aspects! I guess what they say is true “YOU’RE NOT SOMEBODY UNLESS YOU’RE HATED ON!!” Keep going forward Mo and know that you’re show was the truth!

  34. I am glad this show has been cancelled. Moniqque talks too much and when I’m coming home from work I don’t want to hear a whole lot of talking!!

  35. My family and I love you for free monique , maybe they will wakeup and smell the coffee.

  36. I won’t miss it. I was not impressed by the show. It was the same old stuff…different day. Sonny amazed me at acting as her sheep, i tried to listen about 3-4 times and just said i can’t take it any more.

  37. I really think that it is sad that Monique is not on anymore. I loved listening to her and the crew. She made my day when I was feeling down and out. Please, Please bring her back,we need her.

  38. I, initially, loved Monique (with Sonny Andre). When he left, there was a real “hole” in the show. I decided to give it a chance. Rodney was not the “answer.” He was rude, arrogant, and “pretender of intellect.” Monique seemed to give him far too much latitude. She was the individual people wanted to hear — not Rodney. Kim was smart enough not to play the same role as Rodney. As for “After this Weekend,” it was getting too old. She was better with her earlier continual change of subject matter. She also should have left Sidney out of the show. I appreciate Monique, but she apparently forgot that she was the reason people listened (and she owed it to the listening audience to say something about Sonny Andre. She made it seem as if he was simply dismissed, and that was enough). I do not miss what the show had become. I miss what it was at its inception.

  39. I was surprised by the following but it was what it was. I always thought the subject matter was more night time than 3pm prime time just when children were getting home from school. I truely enjoy driving home without the noise. Wish her well. Hey what did happen to Sonny Andre?

  40. I was surprised by the following but it was what it was. I always thought the subject matter was more night time than 3pm prime time just when chuldren were getting home from school. I truely enjoy driving home without the noise. Wish her well. Hey what did happen to Sonny Andre?

  41. Glad its gone,,smile Sunny smile,,…Tom Joyner your on radar.

  42. I am very upset that they Cancelled The Monique Show. They cancelled the show early in Philadelphia for a new format of “Music of the 90′s and today”. But all they play are the same songs over and over again. I alway end up looking for another station. With The Monique Show, there was a different topic every day. Even when I got home from work, I would continue listening to the show. I don’t think these conglomerates that take over radio stations don’t give the people what they want. They give the people what the conglomerates wants and I don’t like it. They cancelled The Tom Joyner in the Morning Show in Chicago and you know he had a large following. The CW is cancelling The Game. Why is it alway the Black shows. We don’t have that many. Something has to be done.

  43. I am 54 yrs old CHRISTIAN woman & even though the target audience are mostly for the younger set, I looked forward daily to her show. There was something for everyone. She was so different because she brought the “REAL” because it came from the board of directors. I live in Columbus, OH that alone should tell you we need someone who can talk about feelings without being censored. Once a week we would (my family) laugh & discuss her topics. What can I do to help bring her back? We miss you. GOD is still working miracles.

  44. GLAAA….DDD, SHE HAS LEFT THE BUILDING. SHOW WAS OF VERY POOR QUALITY. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNOW.

  45. JUST INCASE SYNDICATION ONE LISTENS>>>>

    Syndication ONE –

    It was with sadness that I and many other fans around the world found out about the abrupt ending of the Monique Radio Show. I am sure you had your own good reasons for the decisions you reached however I am writing to request your organization reconsider that decision. As a listener, I don’t know what happened and how the show got pulled of the air however as a stakeholder in the public, the sudden depature of her show was a blow to many.

    Below is a link of an ongoing blog that discusses the depature of the show – Please review it and see what I mean.
    http://radiosyndicationtalk.com/2009/03/14/syndication-one-ends-the-monique-show/

    While the show may have been primarily entertainment focused, the show was instrumental in creating a sense of community that no other radio show has accomplished in recent years – at least in the format that it was i.e. fun, serious, transformational and flexible. The board of directors calling in created a sense of connection that just hasn’t been felt in a long time.

    On behalf of several funs of the show, I ask you to reconsider reinstating the program as this will be a great service to her community of listeners and a very powerful gesture on your part or at least speak to us “the people” and help us understand why. These are tough times and laughter is the best medicene – we miss our Mo’nique.

  46. This is not right, Monique really helped a lot of women and families in just a short time. How could she have such great ratings and you take her off. This is some BS and people are hating cause it was a BLACK WOMAN doing it. Bring her back or every radio stations ratings will drop. We should turn on our CD’s and MP3′s and not listen to radio till they bring her back!!!!!

  47. I LOVED THE MO’NIQUE SHOW. SHE GOT ME THREW MY WORK DAY, AND LORD KNOWS I NEED HELP WITH THAT. I HAVEN’T KNOWN THE DETAILS ABOUT HER SHOW GETTING CANCELLED, I JUST THOUGHT MAYBE SHE WAS PUT ON EARLIER AND I KEPT MISSING HER SHOW. BUT DANG, FA REAL? CANCELLED? I DON’T LISTEN TO 98.9 (COLUMBUS, OHIO) ANYMORE. HER SHOW WAS THE REASON I TUNED IN. AT 3 O’CLOCK EVERYDAY I’D SWITCH MY RADIO STATION NEVER FORGOT TO LISTEN TO IT. IMMA MISS “AFTER THIS WEEKEND I WILL NEVER…” AND MY FAVORITE REVEREND AIN’T SAYIN’ NOTHIN’. LOL MO, KIM, RODNEY YA GOT A FAN HERE IN THE CAP CITY. GOD BLESS…AND I HOPE TO HEAR YA SOMEWHERE ON THE RADIO IN THE NEAR FUTURE!

  48. I am so very sorry to see that the show is off of the air. I live in philly and I know many here in this city miss her as well. Ghetto, I don’t think so, Good times,Sanford and son and married with children are ghetto. There were so many interesting and thought provoking topics that had me thinking about my own situation. I really don’t believe that people actually thought the show was ghetto. I believed she brought new issues daily that made you think about your own situation. There were topics that probably irratated people cause it it home to them and they had to face some of these issues. I am truely sorry that she is gone from the radio. She will be missed.

  49. Just as many “board of directors” have written on this blog, we miss and wish that the Monique Show would come back. This show to me had such a positive outlook on life. Why is it that positive things seem to sink and the radio programs that really depict our people in a negaive light seem to thrive? What can we do to have Monique and her crew back? This is a sad day. It is bad when my 4 year old can notice that Monique is not on the radio… We love and miss Monique and her Crew in the afternoon!

  50. I really enjoyed the Monique show and I know it had a huge fan base, I always believed there were truth in numbers, if that is so The Monique show should have never been canceled, The show made my ride home from work an enjoyable one daily! I loved it!!!!!!

  51. I am so sad to see that Monique is
    off the air. she lifted me many
    afternoons. I am also sad to read
    just how many haters are out there.
    How could you possibly be glad that
    such a great show is gone. I say as long as so many people were listening, she should still be on.
    I no longer listen to the radio.

  52. I THINK SOMEBODY GOT THEIR PANTIES IN A BUNCH BECAUSE SHE HAD A LARGE AUDIENCE WHO APPRECIATED HER AND HER TEAM. MY HUSBAND AND I LISTENED TO MONIQUE ON OUR WAY HOME INDIANAPOLIS INDIANA 106.7. I EVEN GOT TO TALK TO HER. MONIQUE SHOW WAS REAL AND IT MADE YOU FORGET YOUR DRAMA AND MAYBE EVEN HELP SOME PEOPLE. WHOEVER HER CUT HER SHOW NEEDS TO GET IT RIGHT.

  53. I WAS PISSED OFF WHEN I FOUND OUT THE MONIQUE SHOW WAS CANCELLED.MO IS ONE OF THE MOST CARING BLACK WOMAN OUT THERE SHE GAVE A FU** ABOUT US, HER PEOPLE// MONIQUE WILL BE TRUELY MISSED .COLUMBUS OHIO FM 98.9 AINT SH** WITH OUT THE MO SHOW SO I WONT LISTEN 2 THAT STATION UNTIL MO COME’S BACK///WE LUV YOU MONIQUE,KEN G. SHANDA B. KEN JR.& KENYA BOO!KEEP YA HEAD UP GYRL!

  54. In the words of Curtis Payne “WHAT THE HELL” I was wondering what happened to Mo’ I liked listening to her, she was a breath and choice of fresh air versus the “badboy” not everyone wants to tune into a show that doesn’t quite relate to your eveyday life even if you don’t have a passport or eat at the same ole resturants. Anyway, I know it’s just bussiness but I will not support syndication one from this point foward until they bring Mo’ back.

    In other words go to Hell!

  55. Her show was lame anyway. I mean, why keep a bad show on the air cuz a FEW folks listen to it?? Hell, they canceled Tom Joyner and EVERYONE listens to him. So, why assume that a horrible talk show host, such as Mo’Nique wouldn’t get the boot?
    And my black people, everything isn’t race related. Most things are money-related, as is this situation.

  56. Monique’s show was ghetto, uninteresting and a plan waste of air time. From having “professional” boosters call in to her unfounded religious philosophy, she flaunted diatribe and validated people who have an already warped sense of reality. Good thing that her show was canceled.

  57. Not sad the show was pulled-the ghetto fab, sugar, baby reached those insecure folks who need someone to validate them…monique did that-I stopped listening for a while but came back to learn that sunny andre was gone and this other charachter was there. I knew it would not last…She want to flaut her sexiness but some of her graphic conversation left an impression in my mind thad simply made me frown. I wish you luck Monique and recommend you come up with another approach to talk radio if you ever plan on trying it again.

  58. The people on this board who said she’s not an expert on anything, etc. the show was just entertainment, I listened to the show online and thought it was great, for all of the negative folks, why did you listen to it? and I did miss Sonny Andrade does anybody know what happened tohim?

  59. Mo’ and Kim will land on their feet, but poor Rodney Perry is the one I feel sorry for. He needs to invest in some “Public Speaking” classes before he goes back on the radio. No offense, Rodney, but it is…….what it is. Stay off the radio, brother. You’re not ready!

  60. I am glad it’s gone from Houston. When They got rid of Sonny Andre (who made the show bearable by the way) that was her last hope. I changed that station from her daily. Everything the above posters said about the ghettoness, fakeness btwn her and Sydney (and yea, you’re right about the handwriting on the wall with their marriage), the pseudo counseling, etc–I couldn’t take it and came to straight hate it. I don’t miss the show, but I wish her well.
    I am, too, starting to wonder if Tom Joyner’s show will be able to sustain in this competitve market–Steve Harvey seems to be taking over the morning markets. Wou see how Tom got shang-haied (sp) in the Chicage market–don’t be shocked if he gets cancelled if his market numbers fall. He’s been mentioning a lot of financial things lately like he’s worried, and some of you sound like you don’t like him. But I digress…
    Good luck Mo–but please no more radio.

  61. The Monique Show was doing very well in Detroit 105.9 FM, and I listened to her in the evenings on my way home from work. Very entertaining. The crap that’s on now is totally useless and not appreciated. We want the Monique Show back on in the “D”!!!

  62. I did not enjoy the Mo’Nique show and all that fake “hey baby” & i love you back sweetie & all that word of the day. Stick to the informative news for black people. That board of directors calling in gushing & crying over Monique was a little much for me & What gave Sidney the authority to give advice. Is he a psychologist? I’m sure she’ll move to something better, but that format did not work for me.

  63. The show was a train wreck after sonny left….ghetto is as ghetto does….glad it’s gone!!!! nuff said.

  64. It saddens me that MONIQUE show is gone. I enjoyed it. Times are tuff, I wish Monique much sucess…One thing I want to say to all those who have a place in the MEDIA “if you are representing the african american culture…please represent the FACT that we have over come the step-ped fitch-ed mentallity, show the actions of HOW WE OVER COME what we did to overcome, the positive not just bragging about what you’ve achieved but who you lifted up or carried…..

  65. I commend Monique for her zeal and intentions, but the effectiveness of the show as a whole was not really up to speed. I think she overdid a lot of things on the show and it eventually became very repetitive and monotonous. The, “Haaay Baby, Haaay Suga’, Haaay Sweetie! I love you Boo Boo! Sometimes you can overdo something and run it into the ground. But don’t get me wrong, Monique is a very talented and exceptional Actress and TV is definitely her thang. If Monique does decide to get back into radio, then she should except the constructive criticism being offered here and work on improving the show. Tyler Perry received the same criticism regarding his TV show and he accepted it and his show has improved. Monique will be fine. I love you Mo’. Just keepin it real for ya!

  66. I work in the home health field. I really looked forward to hearing the Monique show in the afternoons. Really disappointed that the show was cancelled.

  67. Look Sonny Andre disappeared, without Mo ever saying why nor did she ever adress it. Now Monique is gone, why? In all probability, poor ratings! However, case in point, what goes around, comes around. Life is reality..which sometimes is baffling. Life goes on, pick yourself up, dust yourself off. We will all get over it in time, just another segment in life. Hmmmmmmm!

  68. How could you do such a thing? I work in a highly stressed job and one of the joys that I had to look forward to was listening to the Mo’Nique Show. Even though she is not the most polished speaker, she always got to the meat of many issues and allowed listeners to chime in and vent. With radio stations being so top heavy with commercials, being able to hear the voices of honest dialogue was a welcome relief. You all have dropped the ball with this one and I am moving on to another station in the afternoon and will just have to deal with the drudgery of driving home with a poker face and no memories.

  69. Cancelling the Mo’Nique Show tells all of the listeners that the ownership never cared if you listen to the show or not. It’s about what they want and regardless of how many listners their are you will get whatever they decide. So as a listner you should not care to listen to their companies programing. They have clearly sent you all a message of what matters.

  70. I don’t care what the reason was for cancelling her radio show. They gotta know how much we loved Mo’. When corporate entities do this type of bull@$@%. I say screw them for good. They didn’t even give her a chance to say goodbye. Well lets show them who’s really in charge. Whatever radio station Mo’ was on in your city lets not listen to that station EVER AGAIN.

  71. It isn’t about the politics , or the bathroom talk, or the sex of the host or the race of the host. It was a business move. A truely airheaded and pathetic business move, but a business move none the less. So I’m not going to talk to the pseudo-intellectuals, or rhetoric enamoured crowd, they can slip back into oblivion where they belong. As for the rest of the humane human population who sometimes did agree, and sometimes didn’t with you and your callers Monique, we will miss the tears and laughter. Variety, not bordem and Baisden are the spice of life. Another Detroiter who will be playing CD’s in your time slot…Good Luck, and Best Wishes.

  72. Wow!! I’m shocked to find out that the show was cancelled. That makes me sad because it was really good. For me, listening to the show it was a good way to end a crazy day. It was so much fun to laugh and go home in a better mood. They also had some really interesting topics that made you think about your previous viewpoints on various subjects. I hope that somehow her show is able to come back on the air.

  73. It was all fun and games!!!!!!!! People stop being so opinionated. All of you want to be upper class intellectuals, take a chill pill. If you want to debate and to prove a point, take your dumb azz somewhere and start a movement, because right now you have no voice, and is unheard.

  74. BRING BACK MO!!!! I was always ready to leave work, get into my car and hit your station. I would drive slower just so I wouldn’t get home too fast and could listen to you longer. Mo, you lifted me and my spirits in different ways and…….I’m a white female. See, it doesn’t matter, we’re all HUMAN! She didn’t need to be a professional to talk about real life. She talked and discussed what people were or going through. That’s how ya talk things out..be experience. luv u MO…

  75. Monique why do want so much better for yourself and give the listening audience a front porch, holler down the street, show? If you thought you could give millions of people a low rate show, then this is what you get. Cancelled.

  76. It’s truly ashame that this show ended so abrubtly. It really was a pleasure to be able to laugh at work. Especially in these “tough” times. We all need something to laugh at even if it’s yourself. Now I rarely turn on 102.1 in Houston. I rather listen to my cds. Well, I know Monique & the gang have landed well. Greater things will happen for all involved!

  77. We loved the show with Sonny Andre,
    but after he left the show it was not the same & everyone that I know stopped listening. Sonny was intelligent & articulate. Rodney was just the opposite & sometimes sarcastic. We loved the original format. Sometimes you want to hear something else besides music all day. The Monique & Sonny Andre Show is truely missed.

  79. correction:can’t keep doing

  80. Anyone that was able to get something from the Monique Show other than disgust that an AA woman would not try to give a quality show. Hully gully and gutteral is what the show was about. The advertising dollars did not come forth and this is the real reason the Monique Show could not survive. She wanted to be Nikki Parker on the radio and it did not work. When she was called in to sub for M. Baisden, she fooled a few folks into believing there is a market for ghetto radio. We’re already bomb barded with that in the morning. I’m glad she’s off the air and would welcome a return as long as she understands that you can keep doing the same thing forever.

  81. Monique even ghetto-ized the Obamas…calling them Rack and Shelly. RP talking about how they gonna have s-e-x if Mother in Law is in the building, BBQ on the lawn was degrading to me.
    Her ‘bathroom talk’ was just that — full of ish. To ghettoize the President and his wife just because he and wife are AA is wrong. Until we hold ourselves and those around us accountable it will continue.

    What do have to say about Steve Harvey’s blasphemous display every morning of the Jackpot Joint of Jerusalem or Tyler Perry’s House of Payne which is by far the most stereotypical and buffoonish portrayal of our people by our own in recent memory. Because he hides behind a gospel song does Tyler get a free pass?

  82. What is really going on I just found out this morning that she was no longer on the air I had been working late so I didn’t know alright who are the real haters was she getting to much attention from everyone because she spoke the truth you know people are still living in that world where they are affraid of us when we are to out spoken its really a shame but I am waiting my brother fron another mother will fix this in time and I will be waiting but Monique girl I will miss you but you will forever be my american idol baby keep doin you

    LOVE YOU 4EVER

  83. Who is that fool speaking from Columbus, Ohio. The Monique Show was way better than the same old songs they play over and over again in the afternoons on 98.9. I don’t care what the subject matter was!

  84. You are truly missed in Columbus Ohio. I have told others, if you listen to the Monique Show, you were guaranteed to laugh at least once in a day…I would laugh so hard at times, I would look over and folks in the car next to me were looking at me like I was crazy…lol…
    I certainly hope you are not replaced by Tom Joyner, I do not enjoy him, he always sounds and acts as if he is reading a script, nothing seems spontaneous, whereas, you WERE real.
    Although Magic 98.9 does have Tom Joyner in the morning, which I do not listen to, I am hoping he will not move to evenings, if so I will not listen to Magic 98.9 at all. Which would be a bad thing since that is the only Old Skool station we have.
    Good Luck Mo, I know you will move on to bigger and better things!

  85. I liked the Monique show a lot. I felt deep inside it would not stay on very long because she would probably find another project to jumped into, but dang, I expected her to stay on the air at least 1 1/2 to 2 years. But it was taken off so quickly and abruptly that listeners didn’t get a chance to adjust. I’m sure there’s still some out there who are now bored to tears listening to whatever each of the radio stations have put on to replace her.

    I liked the show because it sent love to the listeners, something that some people don’t have on a daily basis. However, I was very disappointed when Sonny Andre was no longer a part of the team, and even more disappointed with Rodney Perry’s often insensitive remarks and actions toward the callers. I think if the listenership dropped, he was definitely one of the major reasons for it.

    Finally, don’t get me wrong, I love marital bliss, but all of the gushing and sappy sweet talk about her sweet, sexy, wonderful, precious,awesome, fabulous, and (fill in the blank with any sappy adjective) husband Sidney really pushed the nausea envelope….especially when, if you listened carefully, he did not gush about her nearly as much. It told a whole lot about how he isn’t as into the relationship as she is, and the writing is on the wall concerning that.

    Other than that, I liked the show, the topics were very interesting, and it was good to see our people get together in one place and try to help each other with solutions. I’ll never forget the energy that was in the air during the Presidential race and Obama’s victory, and Monique’s show added so much vitality and hope during that time. That is one memory I’ll never forget.

    I’m not worried about you, Monique, because I know you will, and already have, found success, and you will always be a winner. Rock on, sista.

  86. As a member of the board I am appalled that I was not allowed to cast my vote!! It’s all good. Mo was the first woman that ever reminded me of myself. The show being cancelled is only one way for her to hear how her fans really feel. I feel she will come back bigger and better. This may be a wonderful way out of a crappie contract!

    On to the next thing momma…. With all that being said.. I would like to be one of your first guest (lol) on the new show.
    Smooches~

  87. I have noticed lately that I have not been hearing The Monique Show in the Afternoon anymore. I am reading so many different stories and wish that she could be the one to tell us. I am from Houston, Texas and Monique’s show made my day (and my daughter’s day) every day after work until 6pm. It’s a shame how this could happen to a talented female…an African American Female at that!!! Chris Martin, you are right! Others were not forced to listen to her. Minority or not, she made us laugh daily. Monique, I am missing you dearly and wish you can come back to 102 FM in Houston Texas!!! Going home after work is so damn boring now. OMG..what am I going to do now? Love you always Monique! You will be back, I know it!

  88. For those that posted a comment against the Monique show.. you didn’t have to listen to it. You could have changed to another station so why listen and complain. Also for the person that said it was small minority of people that liked it. The minority seems to be you, read the comments. I think it was more than just ratings that ended the show. Sometimes when sitting in traffic you just need a break, you need to laugh and that’s what her show did for me and if I didn’t like a segment I changed the station something you other people have no concept of. It’s called choices people, we like to have choices. Sorry to see you go Monique.

  89. Honestly, I gave the show a chance and it never quite gelled to me. I’m sure with the success of Steve Harvey, she thought this would be a great vehicle for her but radio is not for everyone. Not to mention in the DC area, we already have Baidsen on during the same time which left hip-hop and gospel. I’m glad to have an all-music format back…they should not have changed something that was not broke.

  90. I listened to the Monique Show everyday when I got off from work. I LOVED IT! I thought that somehow I had accidently changed stations on my radio when I got in my car and she was not on. I HOPE and PRAY that she returns soon. LOVE YOU MONIQUE! BE ENCOURAGED! GOD ALWAYS HAS A ‘RAM IN THE BUSH”!

  91. Sorry Monique, but I’m glad your show is off the air. In the beginning I was skeptical as to what your show would be about, I’ll admit, I thought it would be “ghetto”. When you first aired, I ate my words and sent a “subliminal” apology, but soon after that, you proved my initial thoughts right. I’m sure you’ll bounce back because there’s always a market for the 18 to ignorant crowd. As for me, that was WAY TO MUCH IGNORANCE…GOOD RIDDANCE!

  92. Hey Mo,
    It’s me again, I have one more thing to say, remember they gave Tyler Perry a hard time too, tried to make him do it their way, but look at him now!!! He has his own studio and does it his way, and instead of 2 show times in 1 theater, they have several showtimes in all the theaters. Yea, they hated on him too, but he showed them he could do it without them and you will too!
    Just wanted to add that, that is why his TV shows didn’t kick off on the original date announced. Much love and blessings to you for the future.

  93. I am a loyal listener here in Cincinnati, OH. I also no longer listen to MOJO 100.3 on my drive in the afternoon. Monique was the best thing that ever happened to rush hour traffic. I am deeply disappointed at how negative some people are. What happened to “freedom of speech”? As I read the comments of all of the HATERS AND NAYSAYERS, MY COMMENT TO YOU IS KARMA IS A M*****F*****! BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT WISHING NEGATIVE OR CELEBRATING WHEN SOMETHING NEGATIVE HAPPENS TO SOMEONE. I AM 62 AND HAVE PERSONALLY SEEN KARMA HIT PEOPLE LIKE YOU LIKE A TON OF BRICKS. I AM SURE THERE ARE PEOPLE WHERE YOU WORK THAT WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOU GONE TOO AND WOULD TALK ABOUT YOU AND GET ON THE INTERNET AND CHAT ABOUT HOW HAPPY YOU ARE GONE WITH ALL OF THEIR FRIENDS TOO. YOU MIGHT TRY USING YOUR STATION/CHANNEL SELECTOR THE NEXT TIME YOU DON’T WANT TO LISTEN TO SOMETHING, JUST CHANGE THE CHANNEL HATER.
    MONIQUE, as for you my beautiful sister, keep your head up and stay strong, as you have encouraged so many other people to do. I am going back to listening to my CDS
    while stuck in traffic. Doc Kilgour can’t begin to replace you. I am sure you probably reminded too many people of the skeletons they have hiding in their closet, they also probably voted for McCain and Palin, that is how their little minds function.
    STAY STRONG MY SISTER AND KNOW THAT YOUR TRUE FANS STILL LOVE YOU AND WILL ALWAYS BE LOYAL TO YOU.

  94. I was wondering whatever happened to the Monique show. I thought maybe her show was on spring hiatus until I called my local radio station and found out her show was cancelled. The highlight of my whole day was from 3-7pm; I would catch different segments of the show while at work. I would also try to call into the show, but the lines were always busy. It’s hard for us (African Americans) to make it in Hollywood; and to pull the plug on a show before it even got off the ground is just downright disgraceful. There are millions of people in the world, like me, who tuned in to listen to Monique; for a little bit of laughter or to learn something. Bring the show back to Indianapolis and all other cities. Thank you.

  95. I am so hurt to know that Monique has been taken off!!! I hadnt been near the radio in the past couple of days and when i got in the car from a hard day and flip on the station, I heard music which you hear in between but then there was more and more music, and I just thought there was tech diff!!! now to find out that my MO MO is gone!!??!! She helped me adjust to charlotte traffic. I dont care for Micheal and his constant gravitation to teen sex, yes it is important but not every other dern day,so wont be changing over just will go back to cds bc I am really disgusted and distraught over what has happened. RAGGEDY BASTARDS, yes I am quite upset bc she could make you laugh and have more compassion bc she involved all people!!! So for all those who are hurt, I feel your pain, and for all those that are glad that she lost her spot, think how you would feel to lose your job.

  96. We miss ya MO!!! I listened like everyone else, on their way home from work. and boy was it good to mhave comedy,culture,politics, and the love of the board of directors, (which was genieus to include us the listener and make us feel apart of the Mo show) so yes we miss you, but i aint worried you will be back soon so godsped and see you soon.

  97. I AM SO LOST!!!!!! Monique was the highlight of my day I could always count on good advice or a laugh when listening. I also agree with the others I would much rather have Monique to listen to than Tom Joyner. Mo keep your head up and always know your broad of directors will always be there to support you. I love your spirit and my day will not be same until you are back on the air!!!!

  98. Bring the Monique Show back, Dammit

  99. I’m glad that the show is gone. I was surprised, however how abrutly it was done. On my way home from work I want to hear traveling music, not someone talking about “what they won’t do anymore after the weekend”. Who cares? The “board of directors” who were calling in just wanted to hear themselves on the radio. The listening audience the show attracted, well, all I can say is no one from my listening area ever call in. “MO Sense, MO Better, MO Class.”

  100. NOBODY ASKED THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS!!!!!

  101. I listened to the Mo’Nique Show every weekday afternoon on my drive home from work. Before that show I never listened to 102.3 in DC. Mo’Nique’s show attracted a broad audience unlike the previous and now current afternoon show. Which is geared toward a or mature (older)audience. I think a big mistake was made in letting her go. But….your company, your way. Good luck with the ratings.

  102. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you on the dirve home in Houston, Texas. I just want you to know that I am a 57 year old black female who has taught school for several years in Houston. I’m telling you this because you need to know your program impacted people of all ages, backgrounds, and intellectual levels. We all get stressed and you took the edge off. You were fun, upbeat and enlightening. It was a relief from the daily hustle and bustle to sit down in the privacy of my car and listen to the pluse of the “Board of Directors” as they emptied their hearts and minds to you. No other radio station that I’ve ever heard offered such an opportunity. I loved the show where you introduced the book, PUSH. I stopped by the bookstore on the way home and purchased it. That book rocked in so many ways and on so many levels!! I gave the book to my 23 year old daughter and she also loved it. I called my sister in Baton Rouge and told her to purchase the book. She did and had her girlfriends do the same. Now we discuss it over the phone together. Monique, your influence is profound! Perhaps that movie you will be in based on this book, PUSH, will be what it takes to let others know what a dynamic personality you are. Just keep moving forward and please never lose your zeal for motivating people. Peace & Love, Barbara

  103. I miss Monique show. It was light hearted and very funny. Mo is very down to earth. Her views endeared me to her. I like listening to music, the school traffic jamm they brought back, but i rather have Monique, nique, nique,nique in the afternoon.The monique show-ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

  104. HAVE U ALL LOST YOUR MINDS. MONIQUE IS BETTER THAN THE TOM JONER SHOW. SHE WAS THE REASON I TURNED ON THE DAMN RADIO. NOW I AM BACK TO LISTENING TO MY CD’S. I WILL BE BOY COTTING THE RADIO UNTIL SHE COMES BACK. ALL THOSE WHO LOVE MONIQUE TURN YOUR RADIOS TO ANOTHER STATION UNTIL THEY BRING HER BACK.

  105. The only reason I started back listening to 102.3 dc is because of the Monique show. That was a bad decision to take it off. I just turn away now. She was a real talent and she will be greatly missed. Maybe 102.3 can bring her on the crew. They would definitely benefit from it.

  106. The show was cancelled because she had poor ratings. Several affiliates had dropped with in the last few months, so her time was coming. This was not a race issue as I have been hearing. Her show was heard on many (if not all) Radio One stations includind Majic 102.3 in dc. This was a business move, not race. Her topics rarely brought any value to the airways.

  107. I am outraged by the fact that the Monique show was pulled off the air. The show was informative, inspiring and very funny. I looked forward to 2:00 p.m. for the lovely voice of Monique along with the other radio personalities on the show just to get a huge laugh from genuine people. The topics and advice from the “board of directors” were treasured as priceless. I enjoyed this INTELLIGENT radio show. I wish Monique and the family the best in their endeavors. Monique is an inspiration to this skinny [chick]from Houston, Texas. Please bring the show back to Houston on Majic 102.1

  108. sorry folks! – IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. there are better things to broadcast on the air.

  109. Please bring Monique back to radio! She’s real. She’s inspiring.

  110. Monique:

    I am truely saddened by your departure from 98.9 in Columbus, Ohio. I have been listening to your show from day one and enjoyed you so much…you were fresh, all the way live and MO REAL. I know that your confidence has inspired many. I especially enjoyed the times when I was able to talk to you(even though you wouldn’t hook me up to do a duo with Will Downing…smile). Our afternoon radio is sooooo boring now.Know, my sister that you are LOVED and when one door is closed GOD will open another one for you. Keep the faith and keep your head held high.I wish you all the good things that life has to offer you. Reach out and grab it, my Sister!

    For 98.9 since you let the Monique show go…the least you can do for your loyal listeners is to bring Ms.Andrea Williams back before we all die of BOREDOM!!!!

  111. What a tragedy!!!! Mo’Nique show was so inspirational for my family, others, and myself. The last time I heard Mo’Nique was March 14th with her sweet husband and cast. It has been very rough driving home not being able to have someone give you a reason to feel good about yourself and the world. WOW, I hope she is back on soon.

  112. Mo, I missed your goodbye so for the past week I’ve been confused as heck trying to figure out why every time I went to WHUR there were playing another song and I couldn’t hear your voice. I understand what the haters are saying, but honestly, your show was fun and lighthearted. That was the point. They obviously wanted to put you in a box that you just don’t fit into. That’s what makes you special. Remember that in the “No judgement zone” even the haters have a say. So, if they didn’t get it, that’s okay too. Although, I find it funny that alot of those who hate on your show seem to know alot about it. They must have been listening too, along with the rest of us. You don’t have to be pompus to show your intelligence and you don’t have to belittle someone’s kindness to make yourself look educated. It is possible to laugh and be concerned about the perils of life at the same time. Seems like some “listeners” only want you to spread gloom. I just know that I will be waiting anxiously for someone to come to their senses and bring you back.

  113. THIS IS FOR LYNN, ANN, PAULA, A,J., THADYVA, CYBERWORDS, BONITA, BINKY, RASTASISTA, AND BOB….YOU ALL HAVE FU@@ COMMENTS WHEN IT COMES TO THE MONIQUE SHOW…THE LISTENERS WHO CALLED IN JUST TO GET ADVICE FROM PEOPLE WHO COUULD RELATE TO THEM, I AM SURE IF THEIR ISSUES WHERE TOO SERIOUS THEY WOULD SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP. I AM SURE YOU ALL WOULD LISTEN TO THE MO SHOW TO GET HELP WITH SOME ISSUES YOUR AZZES ARE DEALING WITH, BUT ARE TO ASHAMED OR STUCK UP TO CALL IN OR SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP. YOU ALL ARE TRULY HATERS..BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEONE LIKE MO WHO IS SOOO STRONG AND CONFIDENT WITH HERSELF AND HER MARRIAGE…
    I LIVE IN HOUSTON, TX AND IT WAS GREAT TO HEAR MO ON THE WAY HOME, IT MADE THE DRIVE BEARABLE ON THE FREEWAYS..I COULD LIVE WITHOUT THE CURRENT HOST AND MUSIC ON 102.1….PLEASE BRING MO BACK!!!!

  114. This show was the best we had in Houston, TX. If you can keep the Tom Joyner Show on then Mo was the second best. We need her on in H-Town. She was real and allowed us to call in with issues. She gave the listeners what we wanted and that is why Mo is needed on the air. You can have the Kandi show and the others. Bring Mo Back.

  115. I am saddened to know the MOnique show is off the air. I can only speculate why… When Sonny Andre left as co-host, the chemisrty left the show. Monique and RP struggled in creating on radio chemisrty. When talking about in depth topics, his point of view was limited and not very well articulated. Obviously, not like your Sidney!!!
    I can only imagine what MO’ has up her sleeve!!!! I look forward to seeing your creativity in the future. Much happiness to you and your family.

  116. It was simply too ghetto.

  117. THANK GOODNESS THE SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED- I HATED IT!
    to be honest, i knew that her show wouldn’t last long. her show was very stereotypical and catered to a small minority of people. if you are one of the ones who said that this show “changed your life” i really feel sorry for you. aside from the few “experts” that she invited onto her show, the rest of the people talking and giving advice on a daily basis were not experts and had NO formal training in any field. if you think about it, the show lacked creativity. every week she had the same ole tired topic….’WHAT YOU GONNA DO NOW; AFTER THIS WEEKEND I WILL NEVER…and who the heck wants to hear about her and the open relationship that she has with her husband every freakin second? -(…i guess, the BOARD OF DIRECTORS) anyway, i’m sure all the faithful followers will be upset with my post, but WHO CARES? GO GET A LIFE! and stop listening to clowns on the radio for advice.

  118. Please bring Monique and her crew back!!!! Here in Columbus, OH they replaced my favorite DJ Andria Williams for Monique on 98.9. At first I didn’t like it but the show grew on me and now my kids and I love the Mo-nique-nique-nique in the afternoon. Now, I don’t have a favorite at all to listen to.

  119. PLEASE BRING THE MONIQUE SHOW BACK TO INDIANAPOLIS I JUST LOVE HER SHOW ….I’M YOUR GREATEST FAN THE RADIO HASN’T BEEN THE SAME SINCE …..

  120. I want The Monique show in the afternoons back dangitt. The network sucks it should be up to the ratings and the people. We should protest radio for this stupid decision they made.

  121. So did the show run on Wednesday like everyone was reporting? I didn’t hear anything.

  122. I loved the show, I would like for 102.3 to bring it back. What do I have to listen to now when I get off of work? Mo’nique kept it real, that’s what I love about her. Please bring her show back on the air. If not the whole week, do it on Friday’s when her and her husband is on. Do something right this time. If anyone should be taken off the air it’s Michael Baisden….now his show is awful!

  123. I did like sunny andre better than rodney but, I loved the show and I don’t understand how you can go back to jeff harrinson in the afternoon here in houston after you have had moique……this soooo boring. We want mo back!

  124. The Monique show took my mind of traffic jams on the way home and it kept me laughing.. Now I don’t listen to the radio anymore because once you get use to something someone always takes it away its a shame.

  125. I’M FROM COLUMBUS ,OHIO AND I THINK THE MO’FAT SHOW WAS A TOTAL WASTSE OF AIR SPACE. THE SUBJECT MATTER WAS MOST OFTEN REPETATIVE AND BATHROOM TALK THAT WAS SO RIDICULOUS AND MO’FAT IS AS PHONEY AS A PERSON CAN BE.

  126. I work in a stressful job. It was so good to be able to drive and listen to real people at the end of the day, to hear the rational that people use in their daily lives,some intelligent, some not so intellegent but that is what this country is made up of people from all walks of life.

  127. 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 young comedian Co-host, 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 and the rest of the deck, to make life work out as best as you can. 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. 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, 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 real lady first, 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.I was was the first one to say what was on my mind.

    Thanks Mo!

  128. I’m gon miss u mo’

  129. Mo, I want you to know that I love you deeply. You have given me so much food to live on. “I was almost getting full” but I needed more! I’m truely devastated to know that you are going through your storm. What you are going to do now, is do what you do best. Keep empowering, encouraging, loving, and living.”No weapon’s formed against me shall prosper” is what you will recite to yourself. You are God’s child and he holds the key to unlock any door that you need to walk through. I will not be selfish and say that I want you back just for my sanity, therapy, and entertainment. I want you back, to continue the job that you started with women who may not have that self esteem, self assurance, and “get-up-and go” about themselves. I’m asking for your show to come back to rebuild relationships, broken homes,those who are on the verge of suicide,and women or men who feel that life’s challenge’s are too difficult to bear. My cry is for all the people who need to hear a “REAL WORD” from a “REAL WOMAN”. Monique, I love you.You have inspired me in so many ways. This is not the end of you. This is just your beginning. Zeda Perkins! Carmel, Indiana

  130. Bonita in DC, You would not know sensible talk,Urban or any other kind if you heard it. Monique is an entertainer, and that is what she did for the majority of us.

  131. Sasha and Malia listened to her at the White House. Wonder who they listening to now.

  132. I enjoyed Monique in the Afternoon and was confused by her sudden disappearance from 105.9FM in Detroit. I thought the show was delightful and refreshing. I would really like to hear from her why it was cancelled.

  133. I refuse to beleive it had anything to do with ratings, people all over the country listened. I live in Mass. and I listened online, hey anyone who couldnt get the station listened online, so why did they take her off?

  134. Thank you for giving the DC Metro area a relief because I have not encountered one person who enjoyed her show. I am all for talk radio but not ghetto radio while arrogant radio talk is on the other station. We have been suffering in this area for four months since she took over. This area is screaming for sensible urban talk for professional urban adults!

  135. Living here in the D.C. area, I am accustomed to long drives in traffic on the beltway, I’ve tried giving Monique a listen, or two, but I just couldn’t take it anymore. Who on earth made her the ideal voice of reason when it came to issues? Then again a lot of her topics contained absolutely no substance. Her humor was dry at best, and her attempt at counseling people was unbelievable.

    Goodbye Monique-nique-nique-nique-nique-in the afternoon!

  136. ALL YALL HATERS, WHO IS HATIN ON MO AND THE CREW, FU** YALL. She was the best talk show host I ever heard. I could do without Tom Joyner, but I would have kept her instead.

    Mo, I hope you find someplace, or someone great enough to let you run the joint. you are very talented and funny, and I love ya girl. Like that person said go ahead and get you a talk show on TV One or something. Do your thang mama. God Bless you, the crew and your family.

  137. Missed emotions to the cancellation, however, I will say if Mo had a hand in having Sonny Andre replaced…it’s that karma baby…it comes back ten times stronger. I did enjoy the show when Sonny was there, he brought much balance. Once RP came to the show and did that opening….I was done….I have a radio in my office and would hit the office button before they could finish…annoying!

    I am an ol’ skool girl who enjoys ol’ skool music for the drive home!!

  138. “GHETTO HAS LEFT THE BUILDING” I for one am glad it’s over. It was ghetto, dysfunctional, and degrading. I was so tired of hearing “sugar, baby, sweetie, puddin’, and I love you too.” Maybe Mo should check into a TV talk show with TV One.

  139. Please bring the Monique show back!!

  140. I am so glad Mo is off the air in Houston. The show was pure buffonery.

  141. I absolutely loved the Monique Show. It was uplifting and comical, it actually gave my days a lift. Someone please help to bring my show back!!!

  142. I am so dissapointed! I love Monique. I loved her show! Please bring her back to the Detroit area radio. We need her. She made a positive impact in the afternoons. Light hearted, sweet, positive, empowering and Real…. We need More I mean Mo! Monique!!

  143. Sorry MoNique but I was glad to see the show go. When I listen to radio I want to hear music not a lot of Jerry Springer and Oprah. If ya want a talk show try TV. And for the listeners if ya want help seek professional licensed help I don’t want to hear your drama and problems on the radio. Sorry!! I love music!!!!

  144. I’m glad it’s off the air, the show sucked.

  145. What the hell we gonna do now from 2 – 6pm. Dam Dam Dam

  146. Why was Mo’Nique taken off the air???

  147. yeah!!! Who gave her the authority to give advice on Life,she’s a freaking comedian and not even that good! Thank you for making the after work radio listening enjoyable again.

  148. I was listening to Monique’s show Friday when it went off the air.I am so disapointed about that. She had some great topics. I hope she has another chance to come back.Detroit loves her.

  149. Although I will not miss the time she gave her “Sweet husband, Sidney”; I will definetely miss Monique. She was a breath of fresh air on the radio and she ALWAY makes me laugh. I remain a fan and I will continue to support her future works.

  150. Okay MO, it’s time to take it to the next level. Lets take it to TV. If you can’t beat them , join them and then beat them.

    This is for you MO. Don’t let anything stop you from reaching your destiny. You were designed to impact and empower people with the tools and resources they will need in order to maximize their potential.

    You did just that for many people in the Houston , Texas area. You made the afternoon drive something to look forward too as well as bring very postive subject matters.

    Especially when you had one of the men that have been one of the most powerful motivators and mentors on the planet Les Brown on your show several times. You know what it takes to touch the heart and soul of people because you understand your mission for mankind.

    Take it from another master motivator. I see you on that next level just because this obstacle is only an avenue for you to reach your destiny.

    Plant your feet Mo and stay focused on your dream. You have allow others to dream and look at life through a new set of eyes.

    We are praying for you in H-Town. I see the Mo Show on TV.

    “Birthing Your Dreams are he Success Keys To Unlocking Your Potential”.

    Much Luv

  151. I think it’s a damn shame we can’t have anyone to talk to us straigt up without management getting involved. They should have known in the beginning how Monique speaks her mind openly. She has schooled a lot of listeners, young & old. So what was the damn problem? Some people may be BETTER people because of her. She touched home with a lot of her topics and even had professionals to assist her. Damn, what is this really about???????????

  152. What the fu@@. It seems like the old saying “Crabs in a Barrel”. I think they’re still trying to keep us down. Her show was very informative & positive in so many ways those people will never know. I think it was just because she brought some positivity in black folk lives that they couldn’t understand (or didn’t want to accept) The biggest challenge is if they will bring the show back after reading how we felt.

  153. I’m devastated here in Charlotte. Her show got me through the first 4 hours of my workday and made it bearable. I even lost weight along with her by her encouragement. I’m not crazy about the Michael Baisden show, so I guess its back to listening to my mp3

  154. I think people out there who complained about what Monique show was about and how it was ran need to be a shame of themselves. That’s the problem wit our people today. We need to congratulate instead of always bring the other down. The Monique shows was for people who had questions or concerns and didn’t know how to get the answer. It was a show for men and women. It’s alright for a station to play music sometime but we as the listeners, she gave us a chance to speak our opinions about things going on today. We need more shows like this on the radio. If it is up to me please bring mama Mo back to 102.1 in Houston. We MISS YOU MO AND THE CREW!!!

  155. The entire show deeply touched me and changed my thinking especially the bathroom talk segments with the hubby, it truly gave me inspiration and hope for what’s yet to come for me if I just steer away from the No good ones out here. I pray she shows back up on radio to keep us going!

  156. I’m soooo upset over the cancellation of the Mo’Nique Show. I don’t get it. Men have talk shows that last for years with controversial issues mainly directly & indirectly against women. African American women finally have someone they can listen to & who can relate to them & yall kick “us” to the curb as usual. What a jip. We have ethnic racism & gender racism. When will the madness end.

  157. I am so glad this show is gone off the air. Maybe that is her payback for giving Sonny Andre the ax! Hopefully Tom Joyner will be next.

  158. You did not ask the board of directors if this could be done. I think it’s a shame that when you have an out spoken person you try and shut them up. Bring her back.

  159. BRING HER BACK RIGHT NOW! GOT DAMMIT

  160. FIRST THE SOPRANOS, THEN THE WIRE, THEN THE L WORD, NOW MO’ DAMN SHAME I TELL YA

  161. I live in the Indianapolis area, and I think the show has been cancelled there as well. I went to the website and don’t see it listed it anymore. When I’ve tried to listen online, they say they are having technical problems.

    Wow, this is crazy!!! First Sonny, now this.

  162. I would like to know the real reason why she was canceled. I know that she had a huge following for her show and here in Columbus, Ohio we were the first city she broadcasted in I will miss the show and I do not understand why she was taking off. She is a powerful woman and I know that can be a threat but it should not be the reason for cancellation. Please bring the show back to Magic 98.9 and all across the country Nationally.

  163. I loved the Mo’Nique and I was shocked as well when she was cut off. The least they could have done was allow her to say goodbye.

  164. I listened to the Mo’Nique Show every weekday on my way home from work. I think it was rude and disrespectful to cut her off yesterday as she was trying to tell her fans goodbye. I kept listening thinking she was going to come back on, but she never did. If you are taking a vote, PLEASE BRING MO’NIQUE BACK TO 102.3!!!!!!!!!!!

  165. The Monique show was a show that women and men needed somewhere to talk about problems and get advise from the board of directors. The Monique show was real she had the chatroom where you could meet friends from all over the world and chat about everything. The Monique show was the only reason I listened to Magic 102.3 in Washington, DC. Sometimes one door closes so another door can open. I will miss The Monique show.
