Rickey Smiley97.9 The Beat in Dallas has decided to end the Rickey Smiley Morning Show to bring in Mark in the morning. Smiley sent a tweet to his fans thanking them for their support and letting them know about the change. Veda Loca will be the permanent replacement. No word on why Rickey’s show is out but it’s usually based on ratings or the station wants to go in a new direction.

If you guys are looking for a great radio station to listen to, download Tune In Radio or I Heart and listen to Power 105 or Hot 97. I love Ebro in The Mornings. Dallas doesn’t have great radio so give these reputable New York stations a try. Z100 Elvis Duran in the morning is good too. Don’t knock it. You’ll love it!! I from and love in Dallas and love these stations.

So disappointed to hear that Rickey Smiley and the morning show will no longer be on 97.9.
He brought more than laughs very informative and inspiration. Loved Gary with da Tea, terrible decision. Have to find another station. Miss you Rickey keep up the good work.

I will miss listening to Rickey Smiley and the morning show. Gary with the T especially. My sister knew not to call while I was on my way to work because she knew I love listening to Rickey Smiley and the gang. What other radio station is worth listening to?

Reply
Gabbie November 14, 2017 at 10:36 pm

I am so mad! Rickey Smiley show was very smart, spiritual, and funny. They kept the urban community informed and enlightened on the important issues going on. Gary with the tea was my favorite with his wittiness and Head Crack was so intelligent. I still haven’t gotten over Nannette Lee from K104 leaving years ago and now this…smh I guess his show was too real for the radio. What a shame.

I have no idea what I’m going to listen to in the mornings. Rickey Smiley show brought laughter, spritual, and very informative information which was exactly what I needed in the mornings. My day could start out bad and turn 97.9 and there is Rickey with the gospel and Pastor Rush who will give an uplifting speech… I hate this and ya’ll have screwed yourselves with this decision 97.9 the beat

Very bad move I tried listening, it was extremely boring I’m now tuned into a different station because I don’t like it. Veda was more interesting during evening hours. You have given Veda some big shoes to fill; nothing like Rickey Smiley and the crew please bring them back.
