V-103, THE People’s Station in Atlanta has made some changes to their morning show! It appears that ATL mainstay Frank Ski is OUT again and is being replaced by Big Tigger!
Ski hosted V-103′s morning show from 1998 to 2012, then returned in 2018. He has been consistently at or near the top of the radio morning ratings his entire run in Atlanta.
Big Tigger will move to mornings and Kenny Burns will slide into his afternoon slot! These new changes go into effect August 17th!
“During his time with us at V-103, I have seen Big Tigger take over Atlanta as a premier talent and generous community activist who is connected to the people. We believe he will bring his high energy and creativity to mornings at the station,” said Rick Caffey, market manager for Entercom Atlanta, which owns V-103. “Just as important, we see Kenny Burns bringing his added years of experience, industry work, and current show success to the station, and we’re excited to welcome him back.”
“I am extremely excited for the opportunity to wake up Atlanta every morning with good energy, good music, and a good time,” said Big Tigger.
This should flow well. I have heard Tigger fill in in the mornings and it works! The Morning Culture never geled despite Frank’s charisma, so a shake-up was long overdue!
No word on Ski’s next venture, but I am sure we have not heard the last of him!
