FRANK & WANDA GIVEN THE BOOT BY ATLANTA V-103!!! ANNOUNCEMENT MADE THIS MORNING AT 7AM!!

frank-wanda-portrait-resizeAs anticipated, Frank Ski announced Thursday morning that he is leaving R&B/hip-hop station V-103 after 14 years. As a result, an hour later, his on-air partner Wanda Smith said she is out as well.

Ski said on air he doesn’t plan to leave Atlanta (though his Dunwoody home is now for sale for $2.2 million). He promised he will be heard again on the radio but wasn’t specific. Most personalities have a six-month “non-compete” which will keep him off the air during that time period.

Ski , 48, read a formal statement on air just past 7 a.m. today. He noted how he moved to the city with his wife Tanya from Baltimore in 1998. He said Atlanta has participated with him in his biggest personal moments, including the births of his three children. He mentioned his weekend DJ club gigs, becoming friends with some of Atlanta’s biggest politicians, including the lateMaynard Jackson and the current mayor Kasim Reed.  He recalled how he was the last person to interview Coretta Scott King, how he met Pres. Barack Obama before he became president, how he got to interview convicted child killer Wayne Williams. He mentioned all the travel he did all around the world and forming his Frank Ski Kids Foundation. He referenced 9′/11, Hurricane Katrina and Jenna 6. He also noted his new restaurant he opened last y ear.

“This is not a good-bye, Atlanta, but instead to be continued… very soon,” he said.

Ski’s show with partner Wanda Smith was No. 1 for virtually the entire time he’s been on air here over his entire run at V-103, typically drawing one million listeners a week.

In a poll on my blog speculating on the change yesterday, about 56 percent guessed correctly that Ski was leaving.

    I’m very sad to hear of the departure of the Frank and Wanda. I’m primarily going to miss Frank’s commentary the topics and hearing his generally objective point of view

    It’s enormous that you are getting ideas from this article as well as from our argument made here.

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who was doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact ordered me dinner due to the fact that
    I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this.

    … Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending
    the time to discuss this subject here on your website.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the layout of your site? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
