Elle Duncan debuts today on V-103’s Frank and Wanda show

Elle duncan facebook

Elle Duncan joined the Frank and Wanda Morning Show today. Frank Ski also returned from a recent Rome trip with a group of students for his Frank Ski Foundation.

“This is amazing,” Duncan said at 6:05 a.m.. She woke up at 2:30 a.m., nervous about the new gig.

“I had everything laid out,” she said. “Makeup ready. Food ready. Cereal already in the bowl!”

“That’s just today,” Wanda said.

“I’ll get here,” said Duncan. “See if you can hologram me.”

Duncan had been doing mid-days and was moved to mornings to do sports and entertainment. Miss Sophia was let go recently. Duncan, 27, lowers the average age of Atlanta’s No.1 morning show significantly.

She did her first “Bust It” report, an entertainment summary at 6:47 a.m. featuring Joe Jackson blaming his wife for Michael Jackson’s death a year ago. She played a really long clip from Jackson. “Sounds like Joe has been invading that Schlitz Malt liquor,” Duncan said. “Joe Jackson is a desperate man.”

She also played a clip from “Nightline” in which Diddy defended giving his 16-year-old son a $365,000 car. “You can’t question me about what I do with my children,” he told Martin Bashir rather snippily when Bashir questioned his judgment. She also noted that “Karate Kid” was the top film of the weekend.

“I need a cigarette,” she joked afterwards when Ski asked her how her first report went.

During the 7 a.m. hour, Duncan broke down the Lakers-Celtics game. “You can’t win for losing,” she said, when it comes to Kobe Bryant being compared to Michael Jordan. Duncan said he is the entire team: “He has to take the lead because nobody else is doing it.” She also talked about the new Hawks coach Larry Drew, saying he should bring more respect than the previous one. They also touched on the World Cup though it’s clear only Ski is following it among the trio.

At about 7:35 a.m., she also did a review of the Jill Scott/Maxwell concert. “Why did he cut his hair?” she lamented about Maxwell.

I had stopped listening to Frank & Wanda but by pure accident I was skipping stations this morning and heard Elle. If she is on … I’ll listen.

Bluntly Elle Duncan is all that … freshest thing on the radio!!!!!!!!!!

I knew something was up when I didn’t her Ms. Sophia’s girl talk for a week. Then I noticed Elle’s absence on the midday show. I thought Elle was gone, but to my suprise she’s doing the morning show. Congrats to Elle and sorry Ms. Sophia. I’ll miss your thrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeee.

I liked her when i heard her this morning,all talkative(in a good way) and very authoritative on sports(esp). She brings a breadth of fresh air and reminds me of when Tera used to be on the show.

The show was lacking some brainy part to spar with Frank.

She will go far in entertainment bizzness and I think her next big move is some tv show,maybe on espn.

Way to go Elle.

WOW! I’m happy to hear Elle on the show. Now, if we can just get rid of Wanda I’ll start listening to the morning show again.

Great move by V-103. Elle is great. She owes Ryan and Doug of The 2 Live Stews for giving her a start. Way to take it and run with it Elle. Ms. Sophia was horrible, no real man wants to listen to a drag queen in the Morning!

Now if we can get rid of that laughing moose Wanda, we may add some sort of intellect to this show. Hearing her rant about her horny striptease show and cackle at her own jokes really forced me to change the channel..I really had to dumb down to get her type of comedy…and I don’t like dumbing down. I went to Ga Tech!! :o )

Heard her this AM, she quite confident with her speaking and really knows her stuff. Good to have some quality speaker on the radio other than Mr. Him SopHe-a. Thanks V-103, you might just make it after all. Now, about Wanda………….

Whoa Elle!!

I didn’t listen to Elle @ Midday’s and I’m not about to listen to her on the Frank & Wanda morning show. Elle try to fit in to much and she’s annoying. I love the Frank & Wanda morning show I listen every morning, but today was my last day. Mrs. Wanda is my favorite!!! She hilarious and she keeps Frank Ski in line as well. I hate they got rid of Ms. Sophia. If they are thinking about get rid of Wanda and putting Elle is her spot V-103 rating will DROP for the morning show. Apparently, Elle midday’s show wasn’t doing well for them to move her. V-103 please don’t make a crazy decision like that……

Did T.I. ever make it to V-103 this morning. Frank kept saying he would be there by 8, but at 9:30 he was still chillin/chattin’ it up at Hot 107 with Rickey Smiley. Frank goes off at 10… right? LOL.

Congrats Elle. She seems to fit in just about everywhere they’ve placed her. She’s very flexible. I just hate when she say “Elle” Dunk It, makes me think she’s trying to hard to be hood. There’s definitely not a need for her to do that. Now as for Wanda. I loved her comedy long time ago, I think she’s a sweet person with a great heart but I don’t know where her future is with the morning show. She does not speak as well nor seem to be as intellectual as Elle, so we’ll see. Elle is speaking a lot on the show this morning and Ms. Sophia didn’t have half that time on the radio. Is V-103 testing the water with Elle. The show does need some new life. I personally LOVE when Ryan sits in on the morning show with Wanda as oppose to Frank & Wanda together. And Rashan, her voice is a bit irritating and not so flattering, she needs to go to speech classes, something simple as reading the traffic reports irks me to no end when I hear her. Just my take…..

Thought I was the only one to notice FRANK SKI HAS NO NECK. Elle was ok this morning it’s nothing new to me…But the ‘BUST IT REPORT’ come on you’ll could find a better title? Yep now Ms Elle does know her sports…I hope she doesn’t sing the AWFUL COUNTRY SONG of hers…Hope V-103 will come to their senses and MOVE RAMONA D to her own time slot…..let the R&R Show stay where it is Ryan & Rashan make a great team…HAVE A COOL DAY ALL :)

Yep! I’m telling you, Elle is a better political look for CW69(the real money) This morning Wanda told Elle to put her ta-tas up and stop showing them off(then laughed it off). Plus, Frank NEVER interacted with Ms.Sophia the way he did with Elle. Wanda, stop letting Frank overtalk you and trust me it won’t be long before he starts to exclude Wanda from his conversations. Elle is weak alone, but she is a GREAT sidekick. Wanda try to hold it down alone when Frank is away and maybe the station will take you serious. Even Mr.6 o’clock took over and overtalked Wanda last week!

Okay, I’m setting all biases aside because I know this attractive young lady earned her way to the morning show slot. Her promotion has nothing to do with say, how she looks? Oh no, thats not possible especially when so many of you are bashing Wanda.I’ve listened to Elle during her midday show, and I was always annoyed by all of her “sunshine in the morning”, and switched to another station. Maybe I’m just not cool or getting old I guess. Anyway Elle, best of luck to you

I have mixed feelings about what V-103 has done. I really think that Ryan is better in the mornings. I liked him, Wanda, & Sophia when they did it when Frank was on vacation. I like Elle too. I just don’t know how her personality will fit in with Frank & Wanda. I love her and Ryan together too. The 2nd time around with Rashan working with Ryan is not hitting it with me. I don’t even listen anymore. Her voice is annoying. Rashan doesn’t add anything to his show. Ryan was better with Elle/and without Elle before Rashan. I say move “Ryan to mornings.”

I LOVE WANDA!!!! FRANK NEED TO BE REMOVED HE TOO OLD FASHION FOR ME!!!! IS THIS REALLY SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE FOR ELLE, SEEMS LIKE A DEMOTION TO ME.

HOW ABOUT WANDA, RYAN, AND THE SIDEKICK ELLE!!!

Yup, I said it

@ Marie, Mike Fresh & Barry:

I co- sign what you wrote…I can’t STAND listening to that irritating Wanda. IMO, she lacks substance and intelligence to hold her own in a conversation, let alone host a morning show. It would be a better show without her.

Not surprised to hear about Miss Sophia…’dont no-body wanna hear all dat in the mornin’…LOL!!

But on the flip-side, I wish Elle the best. She’s just the breathe of fresh air needed for a stale A$$ show!

Yes Nickey! I agree…Ryan should be on in the mornings with Elle. I don’t listen to V-103 at all in the morning if they’re talking. If they’re playing a song I like I listen BUT as soon as they start talking…click!

Now if you would just replace Frank and Wanda it would be worth listening to. Frank is always bragging and talking to us as if we are in preschool. Wanda has the knowledge of a 1st grader and she is ghetto. V103 doesn’t get it and I would say most of Atlanta feels the same way I do!!!

MZRED

TRUST! A change in looks from Ms.Sophia to Elle was political for CW69 contract. That’s why v-103 asked Ms. Sophia to not make any appearances in her new 2 yr contract and she/he declined. Then she/he got LET GO!

I am sick of her evening show. It is as if I am listening to a pre-teen show. Time for some grown women voices. Frank has a lot of women around him. Where are the men. Is he threatened by other men.

mike fresh…didn’t your mother teach you “if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all”. And don’t you think you are a bit OLD to be calling people names. Wanda is a great fit for the morning show. Also, Mis Sophia will be missed. You WEAK guys are only on Elle’s side, because she is young and attractive. Get a life!

I agree that the shows needs a face lift but what’s up with all the hate and name calling? “I KNOW” Wanda and I’m sure she is saying “whatever” IF she takes the time to read your “don’t matter” comments. At the of the day, she IS living VERY WELL. Your pockets can’t compare. One of her vehicles is more than any of your yearly salary.

I enjoyed Elle this morning..I think she adds to the morning show..I enjoyed Shay during the mid-day last week; However, I do not Like Rashan Ali in the afternoons with Ryan. She is too rough around the edges.

Really? This is big news? The last time the V103 morning show even remotely resembled an entertaining and INFORMATIVE radio show was when Mike and Carol were there. Ryan is too old to still be acting so dumb. Greg Street…. C’mon dude… Battle of the songs? Though I know that you have to satisfy all ages, the entire V103 lost its only mature voice when they let Joyce Littel go. Adults make up the majority of those who sit in traffic to and from work everyday. NOT kids. I wish this radio station would grow the EFF up!

Rashan needs to get off her high horse and stop saying things like “I am praying for all of my single friends” as if their lives is horrible because they are not married. How would she feel if all of her single friends started a prayer vigil for her when this Tiger Woods and Jesse James mess hit the news. Elle looks okay. Please don’t say she is attractive because she is light skin with long hair. Folks said that Nina was attractive because of those attritributes and she looks like a frog. I couldn’t take Elle and Nina voice on the same station.

Princess Dia…. why can we not just think Wanda isn’t any good and Elle is decent, without resorting to looks?

Now for Sophia… it’s about looks… in that “it didn’t look like a good idea to hire her/him 4 years ago”!

The show is terrible as a whole anyway, and just like B.E.T. they endorse the wrong messages in our society in an effort to maintain relationships with certain individuals…

But that’s why i dig NPR, The Takeaway on 91.9, and WAOK (sometimes), they give real information, not just useless dribble that we can all get off a “rumors” website.

Frank has no neck and if you see him in person he looks like he is wearing an armored vest under his shirts. I think that his time is up and he should move out of the way for more younger talent. Wanda needs to go to. Maybe they would be better off doing talk radio since they (especially Frank) love to talk allllll the time!

I used to think that I could not get through the day, if I did not get a chance to hear Frank and Wanda in the morning–but not anymore. I have long since held the belief that Ryan Cameron is the best thing that has ever happened to that radio station, and I will not be satisfied until he is back on in the mornings, and I don’t care who he brings with him. He has a brand of humor that surpasses any age range, and that is something that Frank Ski is truly lacking in. Wanda on the other hand, is a totally different cup of tea. Her gig should be completely up. She’s just a lucky, loud-mouth ghetto comedienne that was in the right place at the right time, but that time has come and gone, and she needs to go!

I’m so happy! V103 finally got it right. I hated Sofia on the show! I’m so glad he’s gone. Love you Elle, but please, leave the Ebonics to the funny one and do you. Go back to the English you used when you first started with Ryan….that was music to my ears. No need to dumb-down your language for the morning show. I also love Rashan and Ryan being together again. Now I won’t have to flip stations the way I’ve had to lately. Way-to-go V103. (Reggie, plse don’t let Wanda do anymore hiring)!…..
