Former V-103 producer Nina Brown lands a job at 11 Alive

imagesNina Brown, who left V-103 after a verbal run-in with Elle Duncan that partly landed on air two months ago, has quickly found a new job at 11 Alive.

In a text message, Brown said the specifics of her job at the NBC affiliate have not been clarified yet. “Been in the works for a long time now, finalized it early December tho,”  Brown wrote. “I love it here. Working with an amazing group of ppl.”

11 Alive Tweeted today that she is on the “11 Alive Help Desk” today helping with  storm coverage.

I also texted Ellen Crooke, news director at 11 Alive, for details. It’s a busy morning. I’ll update this if I get a response.

Brown, who worked at V-103 for about six years, had been a producer for the morning show Frank & Wanda, then was moved to Ryan Cameron’s afternoon show. While she was producing Cameron’s show in early November, she got into an argument with Duncan (who does entertainment and sports for Frank & Wanda) over sweet potato pie left over in the kitchen from a holiday potluck. Reportedly, Brown then accidentally sent a text badmouthing Duncan to Duncan. That set Duncan off. She entered the studio and began bad-mouthing Brown, who turned the live mike on so the entire V-103 audience could hear a choice segment of it.

“Stop with that s*** too Nina, like you’re so [bleepin']  holier than thou!” Duncan is heard saying.

The station has a 45-second delay and this could have been excised after the fact. But it was not.

Management was not pleased. In the end, Duncan was suspended for a week. Brown did not come back to V-103.

Brown has not discussed the incident publicly.

In October, before that happened, I was part of a social media panel sponsored by 11 Alive and Metromix which included Brown, who is very active on Twitter. She has more than 23,000 followers.

  Panelists included Nina Brown from V-103, CNN's Josh Levs, AJC blogger Rodney Ho, former News Editor at Mundo Hispanico Newspaper Gina Espinosa and Julie Wolfe from 11Alive

glad she landed n her feet. But something about elle I dont like. Seems like she always try to use innocent sexual content on the air. Like trying to play the dumb blonde thig. Then cursing all the time, but you are suppose to be role model for young ladies.

Good For Nina

ELLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE FIRED! DONT LIKE HER “BETTER THAN OTHERS” ATTITUDE. WHO IS SHE SLEEPING WITH AT STATION TO STAY ON THE RADIO. ELLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE WAY BEFORE THE NINA INCIDENT. ELLE IS NOT A GOOD ON AIR PERSONALITY: BETTER SEEN THAN HEARD; IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. SHE IS CUTE BUT THAT IS WHERE THE TALENT ENDS. V-103 GAVE ELLE HER ON SPOT WHICH FAILED;DOESN’T THAT SAY SOMETHING ABOUT HER NOT BEING A GOOD RADIO HOST? ANYWAYZ, CONGRATULATIONS TO NINA FOR HER NEW GIG!!!!

I’m proud of Nina. She’s a positive sista who is humble and very deserving of all of her blessings!

Wow, I did not know Nina wasn’t on the show anymore. I really don’t listen to Frank and Wanda anymore and especially since loud mouth Elle is on the show. She is so unprofessional. WTG Nina, happy for your success.

I couldnt stand Nina’s voice anyway…but glad she did land on her feet with another job. I first heard Elle on 790thezone doing entertainment for the Stews. She has a lot of potential but you can tell she is still trying to find her identity as a radio host. Her personality changes depending on the topics being discussed. Sometimes she sounds intelligent and other times trys WAY to hard to be ghetto to ‘fit in’. ELLE! DO YOU!! Youre in that position for a reason. Dont mess it up!!!!

LOVE Nina Brown!!! Elle is NOT my cup of tea. I no longer listen to Frank and Wanda or V103. Not just because of how they did Nina but also because ELLE seems off and fake to me. So glad to know that moved up and onto something bigger and better. Love her energy and believe that this was “Gods Plan” all along. GO NINA!!!!!

so you don’t want Elle because she isn’t a role model for your daughters but you prefer a man that dresses up as a woman???

The show lacked a ton of class with the original hosts so I’m not sure how Elle makes it worse. I like her she seems to be comfortable with who she is. That says a lot considering who she works with.

I like Elle and can’t stand Nina Brown. She is a bully, a snake and 11 Alive will regret hiring her sooner or later. Frank and Wanda didn’t want her anymore and neither did Ryan.

V103 is terrible

One of the WORST MORNING stations in this city has the nerve to let a decent employee get away. Anyway, I absolutely must agree with most people, I wish Frank would just go away to one of those cities he loves so much. I really like Wanda…maybe they can pair her up with Ryan.

LMAO at these comments. Yes it is indeed one of the worst morning shows in the city. BTW…Miss Sophia is now being tucked away in a closet as so not tell all of Atlanta that not only did Frank Ski know what Eddie Long was doing, but that Frank himself is the ringleader! LOL

Nina didn’t know her place…she wanted to be a “personality’, and she was hired to push buttons. Maybe she will do better if her piece of humble pie filled her up.

Wanda is a functional illiterate!!! All you have to do is look at some of her Facebook entries…can’t spell worth jack!!

Frank is an over the hill DJ that needs to retire.

Elle is a big mouth valley girl, and I think she might be an alcoholic…always looks glassy eyed.

Frank, Wanda & Elle sucks. Just cancel that show and give it to Ryan and Rashawn Ali. Then Osai at 10.

Watched her—she’s still an overpowering personality. She can’t seem to share the floor-even in this junior level position. Nina is even over talking her co-host. I’m looking at the cohost and she’s darn near waiting on Nina to stop interrupting and talking over her. That’s annoying. Not a fan of Nina. Just be the best at what you are right now..A MARTA GURU(not a social network guru-cut it out). When it’s your turn to cover major news–then be the best at that. She’s trying/reaching. Her work needs to speak for itself. I’ll pass on Nina! #speaksoftly&carryabigstick.
