Wanda Smith, left, and Miss Sophia, right, were let go from the Frank & Wanda In the Morning Show at Atlanta’s V-103 radio station. Smith made headlines when she was insulted by comedian Katt Williams on the air last year.
Rodney Ho of the AJC’s Radio & TV Talk blog reports exclusively that Smith and her sidekick Miss Sophia, real name Joe Taylor, no longer work for the radio station.
Smith, a standup comedienne by trade, worked for V-103 for more than 2 decades. She left the morning show briefly in 2013.
Smith was also part of Ryan Cameron’s morning show after Ski left in 2012 for a syndicated radio gig in Washington, DC
Cameron left V-103 in January 2018, leaving the door open for Ski to return to the morning show. According to Ho, Ski, 54, will be paired up with a “younger female co-host.”
Miss Sophia was the first drag queen to have a regular slot on a morning radio show in Atlanta.
V-103 management will release an official statement at 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 4.
