Joyce Littel leaves V103?

By JENNIFER BRETT

littelIt appears Joyce Littel and radio station V103 may have parted ways, although she and her nighttime show, called “The Quiet Storm,” are still listed on the station’s Web site.

The AJC has contacted both Littel and station management for comment but have not heard back yet.

Still, the radio host’s Twitter followers seem to be mourning a departure.

“I love you Aunt Joyce, keep your head up,” one wrote Tuesday. “Twenty years on V103. Most radio personalities don’t make it a year.”

“Is really true???” another posted asked. “Is there no more ‘Quiet Storm?’”

One of Littel’s own recent Tweets says, “I am celebrating my release,” but there’s no explanation what she’s celebrating a release from.

Yet another reason why I won’t be listening to V-103. They get rid of the best on air people…go figure.

If it is true, Joyce I will miss you tremendously. You were truly a class act and V-103 will NEVER be the same!

It appears that V103 will only be catering to the kids now. Why would they cancel the most adult targeted, well produced show with such a great host? The reasoning is beyond me. I guess they need another person who can dumb down the audience some more. Will miss the quiet storm.

I so hope that this is not true! I do hope that if it is true that it ws her decesion and that they did not kick her to the curb. There is no QUIET STORM without Joyce!

Since V-103 just wants kids to listen thats is what us grown ups should give them. I bet you they will be sorry. I dont expect them to be around much longer.

I was listening to V-103 when Tony Jackson was doing the “Quiet Storm” and I did agree with him leaving, but Joyce came in and took care of business. Maybe, Vee will get another night ’star’ for the old schoolers. Time will tell. I will miss you Joyce. Good luck and God bless.

Her facebook comment yesterday reads ” Friends I am no longer at V-103, I know what the HELL?! LOL Understand that this is not a bad thing! Simply the end of a chapter, & The beginning of a NEW ERA!”

I will miss listening to her @ night

Joyce was great – probably left because V103 wanted her to play crap songs and not what the Grown Folks listen to. Hope her smooth voice is picked up by someone who will appreciate. Good luck Joyce. V103 is not a good station to listen to – that is why I have Sirius.

The quiet storm was the best. That was very good listening much when you are driving at night and want to clear your head. We will you Joyce…

I always enjoyed the QUITE STORM…I don’t listen to V-103 they’re so childish..and i get tired of Frank Ski giving out wrong advice, talking about his kids & Tonya….SMDH….OMG

Joyce has been on since I was in high school! She’s really the only reason I have continued to listen to V-103. The morning show is horrible. Ryan does his thing and I am grateful for his return, but the rest is just for the kids. She will be sorely missed. I guess I will only be listening to “Grown Folks Radio” on 97.5

Hmm they are still promoting her poetry show for February. I wonder if that’s cancelled too. She is definitely a class act and she will be missed. V’s morning show is a friggin joke. Frank is dumb as a rock..suggested we send youths to the military who do not graduate from high school and are trouble makers. Hunh? Sometimes…most times he just jaw jacks with no concern for the words coming out of his big mouth.

Kiss 104 is better anyway.

Maybe now they will get rid of that narcissist Frank, loud & unfunny Wanda, & she-man Sophia.

Ryan is the only good thing at that station.

joyce littel and ryan cameron are the only things worth listening to on V-103.. Frank Ski just likes having his own show to preach to other ppl and name drop famous names.

Wow…. between Joyce and Ryan nothing else at V103 is worth listening to. I guess they are really trying to cater to the kids. The morning show wouldn’t be so bad is Frank didn’t act is though he knew it all, Wanda wasn’t so loud and they should get rid of Sophia and girl talk (what is the purpose of it). The adult crowd looking for some good music should either tune in to 104 or 105.7. This is the beginning of the end for V103. Joyce something much better is waiting for you, maybe we will hear you at KISS 104.

Lol! You guys were the same ones saying the station was over after Magic man left, then after Porsche was fired, then once Elle got hired.. then when Frank’s contract got renewed! i would say that it’s safe to say the 20 ppl on this blog don’t represent the million plus listeners who continue to support the station.. They are still number one in the ratings and your prophecies are a joke! Joyce will b fine!

Joyce,

You have been professional and inspirational part of the V-103 team. YOU WILL BE MISSED……..

Truly, you rep for the youthful Baby Boomer and Generation X’er.

May your new endeavors remain successful!!!

NO NOT JOYCE! They need to be getting rid of that Sophia or that Frank Ski who acts like his sh** dont stink, and he knows everybody in the world personally! Oh yeah Wanda is not funny either. Why is it that negative is outweighing the positive. Does quality not play a part in the way of life anymore…

That is why I stopped listening to V103 years ago. There is no added value to the programming or the radio personality. And the morning show? OMG, what a joke! They start off with inspirational music and words of advice, then proceed with the mess they call a morning show. I am glad there are other choices. I absolutely love Steve Harvey’s morning show, which by the way, is broadcast out of Atlanta. Maybe Joyce can take over Carol Blackmon’s slot on 107.5, she is terrible.

I have to agree with Frank about trouble making kids who drop out of school. Their behinds should be sent to the military. At least they will learn structure and discipline in there and be required to get an education and have a marketable skill when they leave. The military will show them that they are not as big and bad as they think.

I’ll miss Joyce Litel but I’ll bet the Grown Folks radio station will pick her up. They already have Carole Blackmon, Magic and Si-Man.

V-103 lost me with the hiring of the SISSY. I will not let my 10 year old listen to the morning show. He prefers Steve Harvey or Sirius. Joyce and Ryan are truly the best personalities on that station. Her beautiful voice and professionalism will be missed. V-103, your decision making is very flawed. Joyce, much success to you going forward. By the way, Ryan and Elle in the morning sounds much better.

Joyce is probably joining Carole. Frank, Wanda and Sophia are boring and uninteresting. I listen to Tom and Steve in the morning. No “pants on the ground” here!

Agreeing with Oh please

January 21st, 2010

I completely agree with Oh please. V103 has been around for 30 years and top rated for most of those. This is hardly the end for them. I personally stopped listening because I don’t like Ryan Cameron. He is NOT funny! But there are obviously a ton of other people who think that he is (no accounting for taste). Just because the majority of comments on a blog are in favor of something doesn’t mean that the majority of the listening population agrees. Joyce Littel will be fine, as will V103.

I actually never listen to Joyce Littel but I’m sure she is better then the morning show. After moving here from up north, I thought V-103 was better then apple pie but how wrong I was. Frank Ski thinks he knows everthing and I am so sick of him talking about Diddy, can’t stand them both. Wanda at one time was so funny but now, she too can go. Ms. Sophia was the worst mistake V-103 has made by putting that on air, what a JOKE. Ryan Cameron is the man and if he leaves then why list anymore. GOOD LUCK JOYCE, GODS HAS BETTER PLANS FOR YOU. oh yeah Elle is not bad too. I have tune in to Tom Joiner because could not listen anymore to the morning show – too loud – too boring – just too much.

It’s sad to Joyce Littel is leaving V-103, I stopped listening to the morning freak show a few years ago. How can you start with a Inspirational Vitamin in the morning, then the very next song you play is “Let’s get wasted”, this station is becoming to kiddish, and dumbed down. Ryan Cameron is the only thing going for V-103. And lastly notice how many advertisers are on during their morning show, everytime I flip over to listen to them from the Steve Harvey Morning Show there’s always a commercial on. So from 6am to 10am, four hours, their only doing about less than two hours of work. Oh well I guess they need the money more badly than to entertain us or play quality music. Good Luck Joyce, you’ll be fine.

If this is true, Joyce you will truly be missed. V-103 is definitely lacking in quality. I can listen to the morning show with Wando and Sophia doing all of that screaming, and Frank cursing and playing inspirational vitamin all in the same breath. What a hypocrite. Ryan Cameron is the only time I listen to V-103 and once he leaves, unless they get all new DJ’s that station is done.

I agree. I hate that Joyce has left. I stopped listening to V-103 years ago and when Ryan came back, I started back listening but on then when he thought having that drunk Frankie on the show, that did it for me. 107.5 is the way to go, all day.
