WJLB’s local Mornings #1, Beats Rickey Smiley in Detroit


As you know, I have to give credit to local morning shows at urban radio. I was looking at WJLB’s numbers yesterday for June, 18-34, 6-10a and their leap from from 11.1 in May to   to 13.4 in June planting them at Number 1 in the market for the 3rd straight month. KJ Holiday and staff are killing it and with a local show. The show is giving a brutal beating to WHTD’s syndicated morning show The Rickey Smiley Show, which is probably the only syndicated show that I am a fan of, which has now been in the market for almost a year replacing Russ Parr. Rickey’s show has a 2.0 for June and while that is well below WJLB’s Coco, Foolish and Mr. Chase’s morning show, he did make some progress from a 1.6 in May taking the show from #22 to #16.
