The nationally syndicated radio personality and activist previously did a morning show at KKDA/104.5 FM “K104” in DFW.
Although his show was available online and via a smartphone app, Joyner, who had previously aired on KRNB/105.7 FM as well as K104, was off “terrestrial” radio in a market where he had deep roots.
“I wanna have a swan song that’s two years long,” he says. Joyner’s blog post is titled “Bigger and Better Things Ahead,” which seems to imply that although he’ll be ending the show, he’ll continue his activism, which included voter registration drives, raising money for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and such show campaigns as Take a Loved One to the Doctor.
“I’m really gonna sit down,” he tells co-host Sybil Wilkes in the clip. Till then, there will be a lot of activity on the morning show. He says he wants to meet every listener, and the party isn’t over.
His show had aired on various incarnations of KSOC from 2002 to 2014 when the station dropped him, with execs explaining that they didn’t believe he fit the classic hip-hop format.
