Today, after more than thirty years on the airwaves, New York’s current and #1 midday radio personality, Shaila Scott, is parting ways with Mediaco Holding Inc.’s station, WBLS.
“Sadly, Mediaco decided not to renew my contract and advised me that “the station is going in a different direction,” Scott stated. She continued.
“As a native New Yorker, it has been a pleasure to be your radio relative, and I am humbled to have been rewarded with consecutive #1 rankings in the 12 and over, 18-49, and 25-54 age demographics. Thank You for trusting me to deliver content that touched and concerned our communities.”
Scott who got her start at WBLK in Buffalo, NY while in college went on to say…
“My objective was to use the power of that microphone to speak into the spirit of the village that raised me. Thank You! for allowing me to do that for 3 decades. I appreciate every one of you that made this epic journey possible. Thanks to my legendary radio family for being a source of inspiration, my beautiful children for sharing me with millions and never complaining & Thank God for giving me the strength to endure it all. Although this is the end of my journey with WBLS, it is, of course not the end of OUR journey. Stay Tuned!”
Shaila New York’s Sweetheart.
