Where is Mara??? If anyone in Atlanta Radio deserved this, it’s Mara. In my opinion she’s got more talent in her little finger than Cindy has in her whole body!

Not only did Cindy from Star 94 make the list, Ali Mac former Star 94 traffic reporter made it as well as Shannon Murphy formely of The Morning Mess…

Yeah Elle. Hope one of Atlanta’s own wins! She would be fun to watch with Regis.

Jenn Hobby is obnoxious enough on the radio. Her massive ego will make her head explode if she actually wins this thing and winds up on tv. I’m sure Regis will enjoy listening to her saying “like” after every other word.

and all Elle can talk about is how light-skinned DJ Jay-Cee is!

Jenn Hobby is an obnoxious, annoying, liberal adulterer. She’d probably cheat on that new fiance if Regis made a pass.

It has to be Elle Duncan. Those other 2 nitwits have “a face for radio”. Nobody wants to see them in HD! Yuck.

I agree, where is Mara Davis? Star 94 and Q100 does not relate to the demographic of R&K, Mara could reach out so easily. Disappointed, hope none of them win, except MARA DAVIS!!!!!!

Seriously? If you have nothing to bash hobby on other than ego, you obviously have nothing! Mara is a great talent, but if you cared or kept up enough, you would have nominated her. The ladies who made the cut have more fan support than most others in the country. Advice to haters- all that is affected by your bashing words is what shred of intelligence you may have pretended to maintain. That is obviously gone down the toilet with your mouth.

Cindy and Jenn are both kind of annoying and seem to be pretty full of themselves. I don’t listen to V-103 so I don’t know much about Elle. I do remember her from her days on 790 The Zone w/the Stews and she seemed OK back then.

Hard to listen to Jenn Hobby. She does say “like” sometimes 3-4 times in one sentence. She also incorporates so much upspeak ~ making statements sound like questions by making her voice higher at the end. If I hear her say “squash a rumor” instead of “quash a rumor” one more time…she’s just not ready to go national, and I don’t understand why someone at Cumulus doesn’t talk to her about her grammar/Valley Girl talk. The worst part of her getting that gig would be we’d have to hear more Wendy Adams that day. UGH!!!

“Hating on a certain name only gives them fame.”

Go Jenn Hobby! You wouldn’t be on the list if you didn’t have support of your listeners. We are pulling for you!

yes – Jenn had an affair on her last husband leading to her divorce. Id like to hear her talk about that on the air instead of her vapid celebrity reports. Her head would explode if she were to get this Regis thing. And Wendy may be the worst “personality” in the history of radio.


July 21st, 2010

I think Jenn would have sex with Regis, on the show. She just sounds like a wh*re.

Go Elle! Go Elle! miss you in the afternoon. Osai is killing me!

i agree with Linda and others. I love all three of these ladies and listen to their show regularly, but mara would have been a great choice. I’m disappointed she wasn’t included …

Elle would be an EXCELLENT co-host for Regis, she is very intelligent, knows entertainment, she is funny, she can hold a conversation, she knows sports and she is pretty. Elle miss you in the afternoon, but LOVE you on the morning show. Good LUCK<:)

I like Elle, but I would also like to see Dallas from Kicks 101.5. I enjoy her in the morning with my wake up country station. Oh well…I’ll wish Elle the best. :)

YUP, I said it

Advice for Elle:

If and when you get this gig, remember….just be yourself…..whatever that is! (I’m still tryna figure that one out)!!

Good luck.

Not only is Elle smart and engaging, but she is very beautiful

Jenn said she wouldn’t discuss her divorce on-air because Ryan “doesn’t have a microphone, and I do.” Everyone on the show discusses their personal lives and various people in it. So, I guess her divorce and what happened are off limits.

I guess if Cindy wins she will have her kid on the show with her. If not, you can bet the episode will be peppered with Lilly this and Lilly that. As if we give a shi@.

Mara definitely would have been the one for the show. I guess we didn’t get enough people to vote for her. I did!


July 21st, 2010

NO Jenn. Please. She is annoying that whole station is gettin annoying!!! All they talk about is sex!!!
I’m starting to think that they must all be deprived. People usually talk alot about stuff they want.


July 21st, 2010

I normally don’t even listen to radio, but Cindy has me hooked on morning drive radio. Her voice, her humor, and her daughter Lily all add up to a pleasant listening experience. She never seems mean or condescending on the air, yet obviously has smarts. She is someone with whom I would want to talk with at a dinner party.

She would get my vote.

Jim must be Ray’s real name. Cindy makes me sick. She talks about her kid and her boyfriend way too uch. Funny how she never mentions her DUI.

diction..articulate ..suave…swank..and poise ..are ingredients for tv/talk,,and most importantly..The camera has to like you..that is the key..all the rest are the needs for a total package..and mot importantly is to be current on the news and flavor of the week not only of the navigate with an intern to pull down subjects that you keep in your well as what the teleprompter will expand to you ..and read ,,and able to jump in on telepromter mistakes..especially during sweeps time …many grammatical errors happen and if you wear glasses..put them on or use contacts for reading and enlargement..and get a wardrobe person dont dress like you are going to the party ..but in good taste..and with finess..and good luck to all the candidates and may the best one win…most importantly don’t step on your co / host like many others do..let them finish..their statement and thought and don’t jump in or attempt to take command of the show..its a partnership..don’t follow some of the some of the other major talk shows..where they step all over each other ..and you have to blonde your hair..if you are not already blonde..just be you and you will win..

What I do not understand is, if you do not like Jenn, HOW ABOUT YOU DON’T LISTEN!


July 21st, 2010
1:03 pm

Ashley, there are other people on the show that do draw listeners. People like to listen to Jeff, Bert, and Melissa. They tolerate Jenn & Wendy, but it’s somewhat hard (and very annoying) to get past their lack of intelligence and overuse of “like,” “ya know what I mean?” and “or whatever.” They joked about blogs that criticize their grammar. Hey, if I were talking for a living, I would pay attention to my grammar and word usage.


July 21st, 2010

Really surprised by all the anger/hate towards radio folks. And Bert…uh MIKE…I am not Ray. I actually am 52 y.o. and therefore fall out of the demographic for any of these ladies’ shows. But with age comes a little broader view of my fellow human beings, so best of luck to all the ladies in the running. You won’t hear any spite coming from my posts.

Why ...

July 21st, 2010

Wendy thinks “frustrating” is pronounced “fustrating.” I rest my case. She claims to be poor, but talks of buying new outfits and pays for fake, acrylic fingernails weekly. She is not a typical representation of a mid-20s woman. She makes exceptionally poor decisions and is so immature.


July 21st, 2010

i hope cindy from star 94 gets it…i listen to her every morning…she is my favorite disc jockey besides ray…she is funny and couragous…so she would be great being his co host

Well, it all makes sense now Jim. 52, male, likes Cindy and Ray. Let me guess, you live in Midtown and own more than one cat?

Im sorry but Elle Duncan is the most irrating, negative person, I hear on the radio. She is always complaining about someone or something. If you listen to her long enough, you will see why she is bitter and lonely. All Black men in Atlanta are not gay and all men dont cheat. But hey, we know Atlanta will back their own regardless. Please understand Light skin and long hair does not make you cute! Your attitude will determine your Altitude…Good Luck! Sorry Frank and Wanda, but she will bring down your ratings. Oh yeah, Quit interupting everytime Frank or Wanda is saying something! Damn, I change the station everytime I hear her commenting because I know its negative…Too early in the morning for that Shyt!!!


July 21st, 2010

Wow all the negative comments on here about all three of the ladies. A whole negative paragraph about someone else being negative. LOL
