And this one will cost a few jobs, and the dumping of the Tom Joyner Morning Show, according to Radio One Dallas Market Manager Gary Spurgeon who announced the flip to the classic Hip-Hop station at KSOC (94.5) on Monday. Dallas becomes the third flip to the newly created format for Radio One, following Houston and Philadelphia.
Spurgeon said, "The new BOOM is a complement to Radio One?s 97.9 THE BEAT FM, a Rhythmic CHR station. We expect the cluster combination of the new BOOM and THE BEAT to be a winning one. Transitioning employees is always difficult,? Spurgeon added. "We?ve taken every step to ensure our employees are treated fairly and with respect. As for Tom (Joyner), he?s an icon and consummate professional that understands our format change and looks forward to partying with his Dallas listeners on his digital platforms.?
