Atlanta mayoral candidate Kasim Reed recently spoke exclusively with Shelley Wynter, co-host of "Word On the Street" on WSB Radio.

Reed, right, posed with Wynter, left, and his co-host, MalaniKai Massey, while attending a Frank Ski forum with other candidates at WHUR 96.3.

Reed discussed Atlanta's crime rate and his vision for Atlanta's future in his interview with Wynter.

When Wynter told Reed he was 23.5% "within a margin" of City Council President and mayoral candidate Felicia Moore, Reed corrected him.

"I'm not within the margin, I'm in first place," Reed said confidently. "I'm winning this race for mayor with 47 days left to go."

"Y'all done had two public polls now," he added, "and both of them have me in first place. And I'm very grateful to the people of Atlanta for giving me fair consideration."

Wynter asked: "What about the undecideds? Does that concern you any?"

"It doesn't concern me one bit," said Reed. "Any politician that tells you they don't want to be in first place isn't telling you the truth."

Bill Cosby's former friends, Rev. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young and others, took his money then abandoned him when he reached out to them for support.

Cosby, 83, was released from prison on Wednesday, June 30, after serving two years of a three-to-10-year prison sentence on sexual assault charges.

Andrew Wyatt. Cosby's personal spokesman, shared the details in an exclusive interview with Shelley Wynter that aired on WSB Radio's "Word On the Street" on Tuesday, July 13.

Wyatt said Cosby and his wife Camille gave Jesse Jackson $1 million when he ran for president of the United States in 1984.

Wyatt said the Cosbys paid all of Jackson's bills, paid off his home in Chicago (that he still lives in), purchased another home for him and Mrs. Jackson in Washington, D.C. (that they still own), loaned Jackson his private jet, and other perks.

Yet, when Cosby turned to Jackson for help during his time of need, Jackson turned his back on him.

Cosby was also generous to Ambassador Andrew Young when the Atlanta politician ran for Congress as a Democrat in 1970.

And Cosby gave $50,000 to the family of Tawana Brawley when Rev. Al Sharpton called Cosby for help.

Wyatt said when Cosby reached out to Sharpton during his trial, Sharpton told him he would call him right back and then never called.

Juvenile is not happy that many of you aren't inspired by the remix of his 1999 classic "Back That Azz Up."

New Orleans rappers Juvenile and Mannie Fresh remixed their smash hit single into a catchy pop tune, titled "Vax That Thang Up."

The track is part of the White House effort to promote the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine in the Black community.

However, the public backlash was furious after the duo released the remix and the accompanying music video.

MalaniKai Massey and Shelley Wynter, co-hosts of WSB's "Word On the Street," said they were "offended" and "Disgusted" by the song.

Others are annoyed by the left's constant pandering to the Black community through rap music.

Juvenile took to social media, writing:

"TO EACH HIS OWN! Do what's best for YOU and YOUR LIFE no matter what's being said or done. Me @manniefresh @themamamiax and @meet_blk takin over for the '99 and the 2000! #vaxthattangup."

Some of you know Shelley Wynter and MalaniKai Massey as co-hosts of WSB Radio's "Word On the Street."

WSB Radio is giving the team a 90-day test run in Clark Howard's time slot now that he is ending his syndicated radio show at the end of the year.

"Word On the Street," which was heard on weekends, will air Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to midnight. The 90-day test run starts on Jan. 4, 2021.

In addition to their weekend slot, Wynter and Massey also became the primary fill-in show for Von Haessler Doctrine mid-morning show and Mark Arum's evening show.

Wynter and Massey made the official announcement subbing in for Arum Wednesday, according to Radio & TV Talk. "Shelley and I are both overthinkers," said Massey, a New York native who has been doing radio for 2 decades including 92.9/Dave FM, 640/WGST-AM and Kiss 104.1. "We had to be told to just do what we do."

"We are so different but the same," Wynter said of his co-host, Massey. He hosted a show in the mid-2000s at news/talk 1380/WAOK-AM and more recently on the now-defunct Talk 106.7. He has only hosted solo before inviting Massey to be his co-host on "Word On the Street."

"I never thought I was funny," he said. But his humorous banter with Massey and the show's executive producers Scotty B and DJ Crystal is a large part of Word On the Street's appeal.

"It's a lot of fun. The hardest part is subjugating your ego, pushing your ego down to let someone into your world. Once we did that, that's when the magic really started," he said.

Wynter says he wants the show to be a bit like friends hanging out at a bar, which is similar to the way Arum approaches his show.

"We are just sharing beers and a pizza," Wynter said.

"A vegan pizza," Massey said.

"Listeners are at another table and chime in when they want to," Wynter added.
