Former Atlanta radio personality Elle Duncan has alway been my favorite on-air personality. Back when I had a “real job” I’d often listen to Elle and Ryan Cameron in the afternoons during my long commute home.
In 2009, after on-air personality Porsche Foxx was involved in a ton of drama, Elle was shifted to mid-days, holding down her own segment until she moved to the Frank & Wanda Morning Show as a sports reporter.
It was Elle’s youthful personality that brought the old school morning show out of the ice ages and into the New Millineum.
Especially after the departure of Miss Sophia… (But I digress!)
Duncan’s morning show stint ended March, 2011 and she returned back to Cameron’s show to the delight of fans but beef with a catty fellow employee (Nina Brown), cause a rift between the morning and afternoon teams that was irreparable.
Nina got the boot… and months later, Duncan also quietly disappeared from the air, with many wondering… WTF?!? Now for the good news…
My radio friend has been officially upgraded to television!
I don’t often blog about radio stuff, but Elle has always been a supporter of StraightFromTheA and as y’all know… I proudly support those who support me!
Elle hit the tweets early yesterday to reveal her new gig, where she’ll be working at my favorite local television affiliate, WXIA – 11-Alive.
Elle will be providing traffic updates on WXIA’s morning show alongside another one of my favorites, Karyn Greer.
One thing I can say about Karyn is that she’s always helping someone in this city take the next step!
Just FYI, Karyn lent a hand to Nina Brown after she was terminated as well, although things didn’t quite work out for Brown at the station. I heard that Brown is now working as a hostess at her former boss, Frank Ski’s new restaurant.
So now that y’all finally know what happened to radio personality Elle Dawnnnkin, you can stop asking me!
Congratulations Elle! Can’t wait to see you on-air…
