miss sophia fired from v103!!!

V-103 has not renewed the contract of Miss Sophia (nee Joe Taylor), who was part of the Frank and Wanda morning show.

In an interview today, Miss Sophia said he wasn’t given any real reason why the station chose to drop him beyond “we want to go in a different direction.” That’s the equivalent of saying, “It’s not you, it’s me” in personal relationships.

Miss Sophia was the first drag queen to be a regular on Atlanta radio. He spent more than four years at V-103 doing the entertainment report when Frank and Wanda remained the dominant No. 1 show in the city.

His closer has become a classic: “When I talk, you talk, we talk, that’s girrrrrl talk on the people’s station, V to the 103.” He trills the “three” with gusto.

“I’m not shocked,” Miss Sophia said. He said he saw the signs that things were coming to an end but didn’t get into details. (I’m in New York today and he was leaving town, so we’ll try to meet next week and talk in more detail.)

I left messages with Frank Ski and Wanda Smith. No responses yet.

“I’m emotionally okay,” Miss Sophia said. “I’m going to weigh my options. I can do movies. I can do TV. I can do radio.”

“I grew as a person,” he added. “I learned a lot. I met a lot of people and appreciate the relationships I built. But I’m excited about the future, too.” I think everyone will miss Miss Sophia on the Frank and Wanda Morning Show! From what I have read, Miss Sophia was the only reason alot of people listened to the show! Hopefully she can  get back on her feet and find her place at another radio show!

    Ms. Sophia was the main reason I would listen to the Morning show. Frankly, Ryan should have the morning show. V-103 has made a wrong turn in their “different direction”.

    I’m not feeling the “Bust It” report. I used to run to my car in the morning just to here Miss Sophia. The show is boring now. Bring Miss Sophia back now!

    Miss Sophia was the only reason why I listen to v103. I don’t like to listen to frank or wanda. So since Miss Sophia was stabbed in the back I listen to hot 107.9 Rickey Smiley in the morning. Until Miss Sophia comes back, my radio station is glued to another station.

    Bad move. I think that Ryan should have the morning spot. I am so over Frank Ski…ughhhh so past his prime…NEXT!!! I do not know many people who still listen to Frank and Wanda in the morning. We would much rather just pop in a CD or plug in the MP3 player for the morning ride.

    Just want to say that V to the 103 is now BORING!!! Miss Sophia was definitely a hit with me in the morning. Kept me in stitches while on my way to work. Wanda, Frank, & El—Blah Blah Blah. Hopefully Miss Sophia will find another station to broadcast from because with the exception of a couple radio show hosts, V103 now sucks! All the best to you Miss Sophia!!!

    FRANK SKI USED TO BE REALLY GOOD AT FIRST HAND ,WHEN HE GOT TO THE STATION. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE PEOPLES AGENDA. HIS MORNING SHOW PRODUCER TARI THOMAS WAS VERY VERY VERY GOOD.
    I USED TO DO COURIER SERVICES AND EVERY OFFICE I GO TO IN THE MORNING WILL HAVE V-103 ON.
    NINA BROWN IS NOT GOOD, AND THUS THE PROBLEM.
    FRANK PLEASE PLEASE, GET BACK TO YOUR OLD DAYS STYLE WITH TARI THOMAS, BEFORE YOU START LOOSING YOUR LISTERNS. GOOD LUCK.
