WWPR/Power 105.1 has fired its veteran morning man Ed Lover, along with show producer Sarah O’Connor. Lover had been with the Hip-Hop station since its inception in 2002. Originally, he was part of the morning team that featured Doctor Dre and Lisa G. (moved from rival WQHT/Hot 97). The show eventually was switched to afternoon drive.
Lover returned to mornings when Star and Buc Wild left in 2006.
There were changes to the midday shift as well.
Clear Channel ousted midday host Deja Vu with morning co-host Malikah Mallette taking over the slot.
