guess who

According to my music insider, there's trouble at the "People’s Station" in Atlanta, as one of their major on air talents is complaining loudly that he has been without a contract since March.

This former B.E.T. talent has been very vocal about not having a new deal, but the new owners of the company have a no-raise policy, saying you make the same money take it or leave it policy, which is why they and the radio station are so profitable.

    A no raise policy??
    Why would anyone work for a company with such a policy? Like, what would be the incentive?

  • Phillybruh

    I often thought radio personalities made too much for 4 hours of work. Morning show here is boring as hell and they make upwards of 200k a year. So a no raise policy in that field I can get behind.

  • MJF

    I like these Blind Items lol keep em coming

  • Oh Tommie

    Damn...I’m in the wrong field!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Not a plethora of media jobs out there and the ones that are out there radio always comes in dead last. Its TV/ internet, print, then radio. Radio is right up there with print as far as being on the brink of nevermore.

  • Disappointed

    People still listen to V-103?

  • JENNYJONES1

    TIGGA BETTER REALIZE 99% OF THESE RADIO STATIONS AREN'T OWNED BY BLACKS ANYMORE SO THESE CORPS HAVE NOOOOO IDEA OF THE HISTORY OR VALUE HE BRINGS TO THEIR STATION, HE'S JUST ANOTHER RADIO PERSONALITY THAT'S REPLACEABLE I.E. RYAN CAMERON..........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    NO NEW CONTRACT MAY BE A GOOD THING B/C THAT RADIO COMPANY IS ACTUALLY LOWING SALARIES AND ONLY DOING 1 YR DEALS WHICH IS WHY RYAN CAMERON GOT THE HELL ON AND REGGIE ROUSE(MANAGER,VP,PROGRAM DIRECTOR, ETC) IS DOING 8 JOBS FOR THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY FROM YRS AGO AND IS HAPPY TO HAVE A JOB!!!!! LOL!!........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • bemetoo

    man fawk that I need to be a media personality..i can make y'all laugh.ill talk about that big mouth whale back horse head Mr ed looking legs build up like upside down capital letter "Y" jhud

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    But don't they also work other hours outside of their 4 hour shows? Like going to the clubs, concerts, local and out of town events, at sister stations, holidays, etc..? 200K is pretty up there though, I gotta admit. I just knew they didn't work only 4 hours a day.

  • KcoolMuziq

    BIG Tigger was the BEST host EVER on 106th &Park! I absolutely loved him on BET(whom I worked for) and on VH1.

  • Rayne

    Man folks don’t listen to radio hardly. Take that income triple it or be happy you working.

  • FukkFolks2018

    All of what you just said. And here they also record all the promos. All of those coming to XYZ in concert spots. Some hawk ads here on the radio.

  • Trace da Ace

    damn....well most folks listen to XM radio or Sirius (are they the same company?) anyways....hell I have not listed to regular radio since 2003-ish.....

  • isaiit

    They dont work just four hours. Most of them are like 9-5 jobs but more 5 a.m.-2 p.m. with an hour lunch or so (give or take an hour on each side). They make more money off of endorsements. I believe the station gets a cut of it too for airing it.

  • isaiit

    I still listen to both. But shell out a little extra cause Sirius is the ish

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I didn't think they just worked for 4 hours a day. I knew they worked other hours outside of those 4 hours a day in the studio. In Houston, the DJ's work at sister stations on the weekends and in the evenings at local events. They have crazy hours.

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao who you telling.....I love listening to XM....so many channels....I'm just mad they went from 9.99 a month to 19.99 a month....but I still pay it tho...lol

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yeah, they do that here in Houston as well. I knew their jobs weren't just for those 4 hours in the station. They do still make a nice salary, but I don't think I would wanna work the crazy hours they work. And most don't have holidays off either.

  • Trey

    These guys got side hustles based off them being on the air, so i kinda understand the no raise policy....

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Ion know but Taco bell got a winner with these nacho cheese fries chile https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/61001d487050d254665ad32a8ccd11b80aef96979d275f039dd6c3feaddd1091.gif

  • Nikkiknows

    He should go to SiriusXM, but there's no studios in Atlanta...maybe he could set that off...

  • Judge Mental Will

    No raise policy? So ten years from now you gonna still make the same? Have these people ever heard of inflation? Im sure the competitor station will hire him. Thats how they work.

  • imright

  • Kimocha

  • Carrington

    This is really childish of you... well, us. Mostly because when I saw a picture of him and "blind"... I saw bloody sheets and just KNEW this was some "blood" related juice.

  • Carrington

    Is this a stock photo with that many lines in his face?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Them joints is swangging

  • pecancandy

    What are y’all talking about

  • Carrington

    When Superhead wrote her book, she said that she came to his hotel once, unannounced, and Diddy was there. She didn't know what happened, but he was trying to hide bloody sheets and she intimated that they had been doing the oochy coochy.

  • free

  • Renee26

  • Renee26

  • Tee Bullock

  • Bashi22

    Karen was savage with that tea

  • Trace da Ace

    girl!!!! I was about to say...didn't Super Head said he likes it in the booty...and he likes the lady boys????

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    I think that's the radio station wanting him to quit without asking him.

  • ………

    I think Frank leaving had more to do with the rumors and streets talking about him and Tanya divorcing. which worked perfect with his RC
    and pay increase drama ?????

  • pecancandy

    Gotcha, thanks!

  • PT WITH ALL THIS GOSSIP

    ooooooooooops

  • therealashland

    He’s worth the money. Fire Wanda again and pay this man. ?????

  • DaughterOfaQueen

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    It's not that serious, why help them get richer... do your own shht. He has enough connections, he should start his own...

  • Judge Mental Will

    Bingo! Thanks I thought that but dismissed it bit you right

  • isaiit

    I’m sorry honey I think I hit reply to the wrong person. Sorry.

  • isaiit

    If you let it go for a day or two you can get them to either send you a promo eithe 5 months for 25 or 6 for 30. I haven’t paid anything but about 2 bucks in a year which was a “processing” fee

  • CookieMobster

    I missed my calling to be a radio personality (rather than a commercial insurance accounts manager) I have always wondered how?much these?big name radio folks like?big tug get paid. Does anyone know?

  • CookieMobster

    Ummm Yesss! They play old and new school and I love it!

  • HOLLYHOOD

    That's funny cuzz it started of at Tyson B now its Diddy...lol

  • diva904

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Smash city .... lololol

  • Look@m3

    SAY THAT LOUDER!!!! What wasted funds they spend on that woman.....When Ryan Cameron left (I cried) because I knew Frank Ski wack arse was coming back and Wanda wasn't leaving...

  • Look@m3

    sey whettttt...I need to go buy this book?

  • MrsHBC

    They should get rid of Frank & Wanda! What a waste! Tig would do much better in the morning slot.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    They definitely do *not* earn $200K a year. I know of one in Atlanta at a prominent radio station. He's not earning that much and he's been in the game for a little while now.

  • samuel severino

    I was gonna say the same thing.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Just to get in.

    Unemployed and you need rent money.

  • Decked Out

    LMAO - not the "Oochie-Coochie"

  • Storm’s Rage!

    You probably can still do radio. But, you have to be in a huge market (ie New York, LA) to make sick money. I heard that before Wendy Williams left radio, she was making over 2 million a year. DJ Envy make into the 7 figures, while Charlamagne make less, despite being the reason why people listen to the Breakfast Club. His real money comes from other ventures.

  • Storm’s Rage!

    Right, take your ahss to Sirius or do a podcast.

  • Storm’s Rage!

    lmfao

  • Storm’s Rage!

    bwahahahahahaha, bihsh! lmfao

  • Storm’s Rage!

    I basically stopped after Whitney died. H8ll, it was day all music died for me. I seriously, cant listen to the radio anymore.

  • Storm’s Rage!

    nope, Blind Items are so 2k. Just say the d8mn name.

  • jayhawkpride

    According to the book it was Tyson Beckford.
