Briefly heard that Karen Dumas will be dropped from am 1200WCHB talk line-up__ I heard that the station will be going toward a syndicated format__Can anyone verify this???

First, Art Blackwell:-(
Then, Michigan Citizen:-(
and now, Karen Dumas:-(

seems to me they're getting rid of all the true Black voices on the statiion.

Gee that doesn't have anything to do with the fact that Dumas was double-dipping from the city payroll as well as a private sector job at the radio station.

The truth is that 1200 is going to national syndication, bringing Al Sharpton to the air waves of Detroit.

Mildred is still on from 6-10 then on to Al.

This will not affect Art Blackwell as he is on WGPR.

If the city of Detroit ever had a radio station, she would be the perfect host. (And no, that wasn't meant as a compliment.) She and I don't appear to live in the same city, based on her comments during her show.

You mean I have to rely on Mildred's lynchings, to get the n'fo' about community happenings.

She is the biggest hypocrite, sensationalist and propagandist on Detroit airwaves.

She has undoubtedly earned a 'Sambo award'!

The only reason the Dumas show existed was to promote the Mayor and counter the information coming from the Mildred Gaddis Show. Now that Kwame is reelected, there is no reason for the show to exist. Although to be truthful, Karen Dumas is much better as a talk host when she's not a shill for the administration.

What mess is that?

Layoffs throughout the county (union positions).

Employees working without a contract, going into the 2nd year.

Over 200 appointees, more than the former executive had on his payroll.

There was a story in the paper maybe a year and half ago regarding Ms. Marshall misplacing millions of dollars.

Mildred never talks about Ficano's Administration, like she talks about Kilpatrick's Administration.

Back to the decision at hand. Where is Karen D. going after 1200? Is she still a appointee of Kilpatrick?
