SHELLEY WYNTER CONFIRMS NEW SHOW!

I received an email from Shelley Wynter today confirming the launch of his new show. It will originate from ustalknetwork.com on June 16 at 1:00pm. The new network is founded by Lee Michaels a 25 yr radio veteran.

He thanks everyone who signed the petition in support of his work to bring quality talk radio back to Atlanta.

I'll keep you posted as I get more inform about the show.

Good Luck, Shelley!

Update:(6/13) from Rodney Ho, Atlanta Journal

Shelley Wynter, recently fired from 1380/WAOK-AM, has joined an Internet-only radio network called www.ustalknetwork.com. It’s a startup by a man named Lee Michaels, who used to work at Radio One (which operates Grown Folks Radio 102.5 in Atlanta). Wynter, known to be more of a moderate than many black talk show hosts, is set to start sometime next week.

“Terrestrial radio is choking,” Michaels said.

Michaels said Internet radio is the future and he is piggybacking with www.1club.fm, a radio portal to draw listeners. “I’ll be able to say what I want to say,” Wynter said. He said since his base is in Atlanta, he will talk some local issues as well as national ones.

“We believe in him,” Michaels said of Wynter. “We think he’s talented. He’s provocative and well read. You either like him or you don’t.”
