Frank Ski's morning show moves to R&B Kiss 104.1 in Atlanta beginning February 1, 2021, radioinsight.com reports.

Sandrarose.com broke the news in February that Ski, real name Frank Rodriguez, was leaving V-103's morning show to host mornings at Howard University's R&B 96.3 WHUR in D.C.

Ski, who departed V-103 for the 2nd time, planned to work in D.C. at his old haunt WHUR with longtime producer/co-host Nina Brown, then return to the Atlanta market to host mornings at V-103's competitor Kiss 104.1 after his non-compete clause ended.

Ski will replace longtime Atlanta radio personality Art Terrell who previously hosted the morning show at Kiss 104.1.

Ski's V-103 morning show slot was filled by Darian "Big Tigger" Morgan, left with Drake at Atlanta's defunct Club Reign in 2013. Tigger, of BET 106 & Park fame, previously hosted the 2-6 PM slot at V-103.

Ski's 1993 hit song "Whores in This House" was sampled in Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s stripper anthem "WAP" this year.

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.

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.

Sean Combs threatened to hold the Black vote hostage until presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden reveals his Black agenda.

Combs, 50, was influential in getting out the Black vote in 2008, leading to a landslide victory for America's first biracial president, Barack Obama.

But this time around, Combs' influence is not as powerful or prevalent. Still, he seems to think the younger generation cares what he has to say about politics.

During an interview with ex-supermodel Naomi Campbell on Tuesday, Combs shared his views about voting for Biden, whom many believe is suffering from senile dementia.

He said he is "holding back" the Black vote until Biden meets his list of demands and adopts a Black agenda.

Combs took to Instagram on Tuesday, and posted: "Attention to all... THE BLACK VOTE WILL NOT BE FREE THIS YEAR."

Biden already faces pressure from Black Democrats to pick a Black woman as his running mate. Rumor has it that Biden will choose failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as his VP choice when he makes his announcement in July.

Clinton, 72, enthusiastically endorsed Biden, 77, for president on Tuesday. Clinton rarely supports anyone or anything unless there's something in it for her.

Combs' longtime friend and ex-employee Kenny Burns strongly disagreed with Combs' oppositional approach to voting for Biden. Burns voiced his opinions in Combs' comments section.

In an Instagram post, Burns complained that Combs erased his comments and then blocked him for disagreeing.

Kenny is a cool guy with a level head on his shoulders. He never lets his emotions get in the way of his common sense like Sean often does. So this disagreement probably marks the end of their decade long friendship.
