Statement on WQHT Program Director Position
This can only be a very smart move for Ebro. He probably negotiated a salary that was well beyond his pay at the station as the PD and he’s doing what he really wants to do, be in front of the camera. Our sister site Allradionews.com will be interviewing him and the morning show soon. Here is the announcement we got today.March 13, 2014 (New York, NY) – Announced today, Ebro Darden, VP of Programming for WQHT HOT 97 FM, will be fully committed to his role as on-air co-host of the HOT 97 Morning Show. Darden will remain as Program Director for WQHT until a viable candidate is found to take over the position. “Fortunately, I have had tremendous success doing both on-air and PD roles, and Emmis let me choose where I would be happiest. Mornings, TV & assisting in programming makes sense with everything HOT 97 and I have happening today, so I chose creative over corporate. See you all at 5 a.m. tomorrow,” states Darden.
