Inside Atlanta Radio – Awaiting Official Word On Mo Ivory Replacing Warren Ballentine | Plus There’s Some Hot Competition

Inside Atlanta Radio — It’s the revolving door of radio.  Never know who’s coming or going.  Nor do you ever get to say goodbye OR hello with a proper greeting. Just have to keep listening.

Atlanta seems to be warming quickly to Mo Ivory where the social opinion is a favorable one when it comes to political talk.

During the first week after yanking Warren Ballentine from the line up, the news and talk station at CBS Atlanta WAOK went through a short list of possible replacements by letting each (some familiar some not) host a single day.  Then Mo Ivory was given not just a day, but a week, and now it sounds like a second week?

Who’s Mo Ivory?

Mo Ivory is the Community/Political Specialist at CBS Radio Atlanta. She was born in the Bronx, NY and attended Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. She received her law degree from Temple University School of Law. (from Facebook)

WAOK needs to make a decision quick and get behind the voice that will reside in the time slot. The slot has what we feel to be some hot competition as it relates mobile and internet listeners.

Die hard “truthfighters,” as Ballentine’s listeners are called, can simply follow him online and via mobile with the popular radio app TuneIn. But long before Ballentine left, some who longed for political and or local talk were already making the switch.

Thus the real competition comes from two other former station mates — Shelley Wynter a heavy hitting conservative and the other is Joyce Littel, renowned radio personality for over 26 years, including 15 years as a host at WAOK’s sister station WVEE-FM.

Shelley Wynter partnered with news junkie from the center/left Tommy Bottoms to launch  Together the two broadcasts from a number of popular locations around the city from 10am to 1pm ET .  They are steadily adding contributors with so many having gone through the revolving door of radio.

Radio veteran Joyce Littel has put together her own team and lineup after launching  Joyce is the host of the Joyce Little Show, which you can WATCH live and streaming right here at from 11’ish to 1Pm.  Sitting in with her, you will find Miss Sophia and DJ Herb (sound familiar). We hear Miss Sophia is coming with her own morning show to kick of 2012.

Some how we find a way to listen and support them all.  Radio like newspapers and TV ain’t what it used to be.  It is a different medium and continues to expand right before our ears.

We’ll try to help you keep up. Just follow the buzz behind the buzz.
