WDAS-FM recently announced that beginning March 4, the 3-7 p.m. slot once occupied by "The Michael Baisden Show," before the syndicated program was suddenly dropped from the weekday lineup, will be filled by radio personality Frankie Darcell, who comes to the Philadelphia market from Detroit.
"We are happy that Frankie Darcell is returning to Clear Channel Media and Entertainment as the new afternoon drive host on WDAS-FM in Philadelphia," a WDAS-FM spokesperson stated. "Frankie is an engaging on-air personality. In addition to her new position in Philadelphia, she will also be heard on Mix 92.3, WMXD in Detroit, but she will be at WDAS-FM, live, in Philadelphia. Frankie, I think, is everything that we would want to see. She's a woman, she's a strong voice, she's very community-oriented, and she had a long and storied reputation when she worked in Detroit."
According to the Detroit Free Press, Darcell is returning to WMXD-FM (via voice-tracking) after being let go from her long-running "Afternoon Mix" radio show unexpectedly two months ago.
