V-103’s Elle Duncan clashes with Nina Brown

Elle Duncan

Elle Duncan

V-103 morning sports/entertainment host Elle Duncan clashed with afternoon producer Nina Brown verbally last week. If this had happened behind closed doors, this would not be news. The problem: a snippet ended up going on air.

I received the audio. In it, we only hear Duncan: “Stop with that s*** too Nina, like you’re so [bleepin']  holier than thou!” A few seconds later, Ryan Cameron went on air as if nothing had happened.

I have no clue what the argument was about and what led to this comment. I also have no idea how even a few seconds of it ended up going over a live mike.

UPDATE at 4 p.m. A source who actually heard this argument last week told me that she heard Brown may have flipped the mike on herself on purpose and thus got in trouble herself. She even had a chance to “dump” the audio after the fact because the show is delayed 45 seconds. She did not.

UPDATE at 9:59 p.m.:I have now heard that Brown is no longer at the station. And that the argument had something to do with some left-over pot-luck sweet potato pie. Seriously!

Duncan was off the air for about a week in what appears to be a suspension and returned this morning to the Frank and Wanda morning show, where she has been reporting sports and entertainment the past few months. Previously, she has been a mid-day host (her spot has yet to be filled) and before that, Cameron’s sidekick in the afternoons.

Duncan’s boss and V-103 general manager Rick Caffey declined to comment, per company policy.

Brown declined to comment. Duncan did not respond to text messages.

Since November 17, Brown has been posting scripture on her Twitter page.  For example:

“But where sin increased, grace increased all the more…” -Romans 5:20

Bc I only have control over my own thoughts & actions, I will not focus on what others lack, but instead focus on who I am… God’s child!

I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death absolutely fearless w/ a smile on my face & joy in my heart! Haters hate it, but God LOVES it!

God has the ability to not only order your steps, but ur stops as well…

Live mikes can be dangerous.

Back in 2004, the Regular Guys (then on 96rock) got in trouble when the morning team accidentally aired some dirty talk over a Honda commercial. Given it happened after the Janet Jackson Super Bowl brouhaha, the team ended up losing their jobs. The irony: Larry Wachs was trying to mock the FCC by airing backwards porn. The problem: while he was taping a porn star talking dirty, it went over the air. (The Regular Guys are now back on the air, safe and sound, on Rock 100.5)

V-103 was my favorite station when I was a teenager, but growing up meant getting my head out of the sand and realizing how pathetic and juvenile that station, intended for the simple-minded in society, is.

Even when the station isn’t intentionally doing so, this incident shows they are still encouraging THUG behavior in those unfortunate enough to be listening to it such as our young people.

Since I tried XM Radio, I haven’t listened to V-103 once and never will again.

I am sick of hearing Elle on V-103. She doesn’t know sports….she proved that when she was talking about Vick’s performance last week. Frank Ski had to school her on sports. Vick broke records and she couldn’t give Vick his accolades. I’m sick of hearing her pitchy voice and listening to her “HATE” on everyone. I wish they just place Rashan in her old midday spot. Rashan is seasoned and knows what she is doing and saying. PLEASE LET ELLE GO!!

It aint't the end

While I’m mo Elle Duncan fan this too shall pass.. The incident isn’t a big enough issue to warrant firing her as I assume the majority of the madness remained in the back of the house..

In my opinion Elle is being groomed to take over that show and draw in a younger demographic.. but the chick is an air head and while her comments are smartened since her time as Ryan’s sidekick the dumb blonde still shines through..

Unfortunatley I don’t think V103 is getting rid of this chick any time soon

I used to love listening to this station when Ms. Sophia was on there. I tried to give Elle a chance, but she is too over the top for me. She feels like her opinions are facts. I don’t like the way she talks to Wanda and don’t like how she kiss Frank’s a**. So therefore, every since 1 month ago I listen to satellite radio driving to work or Steve Harvey..

Go Elle!

Anyone who knows or has experienced Nina can tell ya… she probably set Elle up. She is super insecure, super fake, super rude – and a super b!tch! Anyone that posts scripture like that while keeping the company she keeps; don’t walk, RUN in the opposite direction! We’re still baffled (not really) as to how she ended up producer of the Frank Ski morning show – at the time, V was the top station in the southeast – with ZERO experience. Other than being Frank’s gopher for his kids’ foundation.

This woman (Nina) knows deep down she does not have the credentials for or has earned where she is and in turn is threatened by any other female paying their dues and gaining success!

I was listening when it happened, and Ryan just kept on talking like Elle didn’t just cuss on the air. I was wondering what that was about, and now I know… well, not really. I don’t know either one of them, so I won’t pick a side.

So this happened earlier this month and now you decide to run a story on it? Today must be a really slow news day. I wonder what else happened earlier this month. Maybe I should read a real newspaper.

Reminder: Rashan (Ali) Smith is a CONTEST WINNER. That’s how she ended up in this. She won a contest. Before this, Left_eye’s assistant (and not a very good one).

Rashan and Nina = 2 peas, same pod. V’s ratings are in the scrapper regardless.

Elle needs to stay, she is very good. Nina is the one that should go. Elle is the only one on those shows with some class and true sense. Her and Frank Ski. The rest of those clowns are a joke on V-103.

I must say I thought I was the only one that felt that Ell was a loud mouth, yougster that thns she has lived and knows all. She comes across as a spoiled brat that must have her say and her way. She also thinks that she is the stuff. She is not only not a SPORTS HOST, she also is not a good VJAY. I was trying really hard to fit her into the equaation every morning, but I BUST IT is lik some juvinile HOT MESS. I sdo not know what happened to Sphia, but I sure would rather that this this. Elle needs to not only tone it down, she needs a attitude adjustment. When you are given an opportunity, you take it and make the best from it, she in turns feels the need to SCOLD GROWN FOLKS. I never allow a CHILD to talk to me any kind of way. She did a remix with Wanda one time, she say she was only playing, but I really think she is this way. She spoke of how if you want to talk to here you need to buy her AND HER GIRLS a drink. She talks down about men to the point that you need to wonder why she aint got one. All in All not a good fit for her in the morning show, not to mention we need grown folks time. Also they need to do something with the darkness OSAY. If I was at work and he was on, he would out me to dang sleep. he plays too much LOVE music in the afternoon. What happened to Maxwell, Rkelly, stuff like that Erica Badu, Whitney, GuY ,, uPBEAT STUFF. Ell bneeds to go , Luscious i a stripper why is he on the air, he totally SUCK, Osya need to get it together or else he needs to go tooo. PS Nina Brown is more classy then Elle could ever ever ever be

Go Elle!

@Go Elle! thank you! Ms. Nina is as phony as they come, and Elle, no matter what you have to say about her, is the most genuine and sweetest “celebrity” that I have ever met. I’ve had a chance to spend time with both, and Nina is a bitch in waiting for Reggie Rouse’s job.

Now really…you are hating on Elle and you know it. Most of you are simply jealous and will scold a woman much harder than a man. Elle has an opinion…which she is entitled too. She was NOT hating on Vick, she simply had an opinion. I see a big future for Elle…WAY BIGGER THAN ATL. Mark my words. Heck, all of them get on my nerves occasionally, but Elle is NO DUMMY and deserves her accolades!!! Go Elle…you got a fan in me. Forget those hatin’ heffas!!!!!!!

And another thing…it’s only heffas that are talking about her “not knowing sports”…like THEY do. Puhleez. The same day the Vick incident went donwn, a dude called and was giving Elle her props…even Frank gave her props. Ya’ll just shut up. I’m telling you…I know what you look like and I know you’re jealous. hee hee…plain and simple boo!

The Frank and Wanda Show is a great radio talk show. I really like listening to Frank and Wanda – they have done a lot for the community. It is a blessing to have two talented individuals from two walks of life to come together and form such a great team. There are a lot of times that Frank and Wanda disagree on issues but that happens in corporate also when you have two smart, strong minded individuals with separate beliefs. I can honestly say that no one else has been a great fit… Other individuals are great people but are not a good fit for the morning show – those individuals are: Tara Thomas, Ms. Sophia and Elle. Frank and Wanda should does not need any other co-hosts. Nina should remain the producer but Elle needs to consider a career change.

V103 is TIRED. Man, I stopped listening to that trash a long time ago. Can you say, wasted brain cells?? On the other hand, Nina and Elle can get the bizness and I’d love to get it to them. Both, at the same time, in the studio, on air, with UPN filming…..LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FIRST AND FORMOST I’D LIKE TO SAY THAT SO MANY OF YOU GUYS ARE COMING DOWN ON ELLE WITHOUT KNOWING THE BACK ROUND. YES ALL YOU HEARD WAS ELLE CURSING BUT WHO DO YOU SEE RUNNING THE BOARD ON THE FRANK AND WANDA SHOW. THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN HEAR THINGS IS IF THE BOARD OPP. PRESSES THE BUTTONS TO LET IT BE PLAYED ON AIR. FROM WATCHING THE FRANK AND WANDA SHOW NINA IS A BOARD OPP. MANY PEOPLE DONT KNOW HOW BACK STABBING AND TRIFFLING NINA IS,FOR SOMEONE THAT QUOTES BIBLE SCRIPTURES SHE SURE IS THE DEVIL.THERE IS ALWAYS MORE TO A STORY THAN WHAT IS TOLD BELIEVE IT. NINA PROBABLY SET ELLE UP. I BELIEVE THAT TO THE TENTH DEGREE.

I am not a fan of Duncan or V-103 but Nina & her scriptures are suspect. Those are the people to watch. Nina does act like she is hollier than thou when it comes to dating & relationships but I wonder how did someone so saintly end up a single mother. When the conversation is about relationships Frank will check Nina hard cause she loves thug but often complain about men in Atl. Scriptures & thugs???

Ms. Duncan should resign or be fired immediately. I’m going to contact the FCC and all other media/radio organizations. First of all it is very distasteful for a lady to talk like that. No organization should allow anyone to speak like that in the workplace regardless of the line of business. I am going to write Infinity broadcasting about the comments. The issue should not be whether Ms. Duncan was set up — the issue is about being a professional while on the clock. I am a professional female and I would never talk like that to anyone on my job or in public. Ms. Duncan truly lacks class. The owners of V103 need to have everyone resign and reapply for their positions—there are a lot of talented people who would appreciate having one of those job opportunities.

Ms. Sophia...Not

Elle your doing a good job , keep up the good work. Moving you to the morning show was the best move RR has made in a long time. You add a younger, fresher sound in the morning. Stay true to who you are and WHIP “YOUR HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
