Rick Party Exits Hot 105 in Miami

radiofacts.com I have the greatest respect for Rick Party because he learned a long time ago about the importance of not just being a broadcaster but also an entrepreneur. He has exited Hot 105 today after just being reinstated to afternoon drive with Benji Brown to take over after the Michael Baisden show was canceled at the station. Party states he could not come to a contractual agreement with the station. Party states: "Turning to the next chapter of my life... Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches, Thank you for allowing me to grace the airwaves of South Florida's HOT 105. Today is bittersweet for me as I announce my departure from this amazing institution. Unfortunately, Hot 105 and I could not reach an agreement when it came time to renew my contract with them. They offered me a 3-year deal with terms that I simply could not accept. So, I had to push away from the table and walk on faith. RICK PARTY TALKS TO RFFOCUS ABOUT LIFE AFTER HOT 105 I'm looking forward to this next chapter in my life, which includes among others, a National Radio Syndication opportunity that awaits me. In the meantime, I'll continue to entertain, enlighten, and inform you via my social media pages. On a lighter note, ESPN / Disney has made me an employee and I can be heard weekdays as the voice of SportsCenter on the television network by over 200 Million people in over 60 countries. Thank you all for your continued support." Rick Pаrty

CMG Miami Radio Names Michael Baisden New Afternoon Drive Host for Hot 105



MIAMI – Feb. 13, 2017 – Cox Media Group (CMG) Miami Radio has announced Michael Baisden as its new afternoon drive host on Hot 105, effective February 20th, 2017.  The Michael Baisden show is syndicated with our sister station WALR KISS 104 as the flagship station.

Nobody is leaving which is usually the trend when syndication comes on. We value our people and our future. We’re splitting shifts to accommodate Michael. New lineup:
  • 6am – 9am – The New Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS)
  • 9am – 12n – James T
  • 12n – 3pm – Rick Party in the afternoon with Benji Brown
  • 3pm – 7pm – The Michael Baisden Show
  • 7pm – 12mid – The Quiet Storm with Freddie Cruz (32 years strong)

“Michael was a part of the Hot 105 Super brand from 2007 to 2013 with a proven track record of success.” said WHQT Director of Branding and Programming Phil Michaels-Trueba. “I am happy to welcome Michael, George Willborn, and Tamara G back home to our already stellar lineup of icons, legends, and superstars on the Hot 105 Super brand that super serve our community!”

Baisden is undeniably one of the most influential and engaging personalities in radio history. His meteoric rise to No. 1 redefined radio with the numbers to back it up. The show was heard in over 100 cities nationwide with over 7 million loyal listeners daily. 

“There's no place like home,” said Baisden. “It feels great to be back on the air on Hot 105 in Miami, the city that I've called home for the past 15 years! My radio family in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area have always been among the most loyal and active in the country. I'll never forget the election night party where thousands showed up to celebrate President Obama's first victory and the incredible turnout in Miramar for the One Million Mentors Tour to save our children. Now the show is back and hotter than ever! Along with myself and comedian George Willborn, we've added a lady to the team who is no stranger to the Miami area, Tamara G! Now the energy in the studio is on another level! So get ready Miami! The baddest show on radio is back with great music, social activism, and engaging topics. Grown Folks Radio has returned to the best adult station in Miami, Hot 105. It's Time To Shut The City Down!”

“It’s so great to have The Michael Baisden Show return to Hot 105,” said CMG Miami VP and General Manager Rob Babin.  “Adding Michael Baisden to our current superstar line-up ensures Hot 105 continues to deliver the best entertainment, community focused R&B and Old School. Welcome home Michael!”

Baisden’s career began when he took a leap of faith to leave his job driving trains in Chicago to self-publish his book and began touring the country selling books out of the trunk of his car. The New York Times best-selling author and relationship expert hosted two nationally syndicated TV talk shows: a daytime called “Talk or Walk”, and a late night talk show titled "Baisden After Dark.”

Baisden has carved a unique niche as a speaker, radio personality, philanthropist and social activist. He was honored by BBBS with the Michael Baisden Inspiration Award, which is given to people who are dedicating themselves to actively recruiting mentors. Baisden also founded the Michael Baisden Foundation focusing on education, literacy and mentoring.
