Frank Ski called in to Atlanta's V-103 morning show on Wednesday to confirm the news that he is moving on from the radio station.

Sandrarose.com broke the news late Tuesday that Ski, real name Frank Rodriguez, was leaving the morning show to host mornings at WHUR in D.C.

According to my credible source, Ski will return to the Atlanta market in 6 months after his non-compete clause ends. He will then host mornings at V-103 competitor Kiss 104.1.

Longtime Atlanta radio personality Art Terrell currently hosts the morning show at Kiss 104.1.

Ski's V-103 morning show slot will be filled by Darian "Big Tigger" Morgan, left with Drake at Atlanta's defunct Club Reign in 2013. Tigger currently hosts the 2-6 PM slot at V-103.

Tigger also called in to the morning show on Wednesday morning to confirm the news that he is taking over as morning show host on August 17.

Longtime Atlanta radio personality Ramona Debreaux will take over for Tigger at midday.

V-103 station manager Rick Caffey had nothing but praise for Big Tigger, who previously hosted BET's 106 & Park.

"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," Caffey said in a statement.

"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."

The shakeup at V-103 comes nearly 8 years after a similar personnel change saw Ski leave V-103 after three decades. His hosting duties at V-103 were filled by Tigger in 2012 as well.

Frank Ski transitioned from a well-known rapper to host of his own show "Breaker's Delight" in D.C. Ski joined 92Q FM in Baltimore in 1996.

He was nominated for Billboard's Independent Record of the Year for "Doo Doo Brown" in 1992. He went on to produce rap records for some of the biggest names in hip-hop and gospel.

Ski moved to Atlanta where he took over the morning show at V-103 which became the top-rated morning show in Atlanta.

Ski, 56, who owns Frank Ski's Restaurant and Lounge, also ran the Frank Ski Foundation that provided scholarships and trips around the world to Atlanta schoolchildren.

In 2012, Ski announced his decision to end his long-running term as co-host of the V-103 morning show.

"I am not leaving Atlanta. This is my home," said Ski at time. He promised his radio listeners he would be back on the air soon.

In an interview with Atlanta's V-103 Morning culture on Wednesday, Sept. 4, Yoba told host Big Tigger that he is not a homosexual because he is attracted to "all women".

During the same interview, Yoba, 55, denied paying a teenage transgender for sex 20 years ago. Both interviews are posted below.
