V-103’s Elle Duncan moves yet again… back to the Ryan Cameron show

My inside sources were right on the mark: Elle Duncan’s foray into mornings was indeed short lived.

The V-103 host today re-joined Ryan Cameron’s afternoon show (2 p.m. to 6 p.m.).

It’s become a bit like a game of musical chairs.

Duncan was Cameron’s sidekick for several years until early 2009, when she was moved to mid-days, taking over for the now departed Porsche Foxx.

She lasted there for about 18 months before moving to the Frank & Wanda morning show where she did the sports and entertainment reports. Miss Sophia was out. But it was clear that this wasn’t the best arrangement. (Frank and Wanda’s producer Nina Brown, now at WXIA-TV, moved to Cameron’s show briefly before a tiff with Duncan last November led to her departure from the station entirely. Read about that here.)

When V-103 and Rashan Ali parted ways last week, Duncan moved yet again to replace her in afternoons after just ten months in mornings. Ali, too, is out of radio.

Congrats to Elle, I’m sure she would prefer to be with Ryan over those clowns in the morning, but i miss Rashan already!

Gosh, she sucks!!! Thank goodness I don’t have to hear her anymore on my way to work in the mornings. She’s soooooooo annoying, like she’s on some extra drugs!! She screams on the show so much, I feel for any man that she dates. Miss Sophia, where are you?

I really liked Rashan, but according to an article last week, she was upset that she didn’t get the 10-2 slot that I think Ramona got. So, she threatened to leave if she didn’t get the slot and, oh well….

I really hope Elle is out the door next…I mean, she has been on every time slot on 103, and she irks me to death when she is with Ryan. I could tolerate her somehow when she was on in the mornings, and a few times she was pretty funny. Oh well….back to Tom Joyner…

Yes @laughable, I believe you are correct. But talk about someone getting chances right? Most people who can’t do a job are given 1 verbal and 2 written warnings and out the door you go. They are going to make Elle fit even if they have to force a square peg into a round hole. Makes you wonder what is really going on with Ryan’s pull and Reggie Rouse. Elle didn’t fit with her parents in the morning. She was always better off with Ryan. Rashan is too strong a personality to play cutesy with Ryan. Wanda and Frank are just Wanda and Frank. The best fit overall is Ramona middays. Ryan needs to do the morning show and Frank can do the drive. Wanda needs to be a feature ONLY like Nephew Tommy because she basically does “black face” comedy now. Bring Joyce Littel back. Leave Greg where he is but pair him with a younger version like Little Greg.

Looks like they have no idea what they want to do with Duncan. She clearly can’t hold a show on her own, as the midday’s now belong to Ramona Debreaux. She can’t work with Frank and Wanda the older and more experienced crowd, sounded like a fool doing sports, and they clearly aren’t going to kick out Cameron to put her in the Afternoons to host her own show.

Duncan is annoying, unprepared and an amateur, just like most hosts at V-103. Ramona and Ryan are the only ones with talent. Next step for Duncan is to BUST IT to the door. And should be. Awful.

Wise move. She was pretentious and condescending. I think her head got a little big after she got that spot on the morning show.

Not sure what is going on at V-103 but it is not good for their publicity to have all of this moving around going on. Elle Duncan has a nasal voice that is so irrititating to say the least. V-103 does too much talking and their idea of entertainment is so lacking. I suggest a better variety of music and passon the music that the last host played and do NOT play it as soon as you hit the air. THANKS SO MUCH.

Please no!!! I was so glad when she was out the first time. Elle needs to find something else to do. She gets on my nerves. I love Ryan to death, but I can’t take Elle. She has an annoying voice and she hates to wrong about anything. Come on Reggie Rouse.

LUCKY

I love Elle and am glad that she and Ryan are back together. As far as Rashan, I have not liked her since 107.9 she had no compassion for her listeners her and Griff was horrible. I wish Rashan the best just not in RADIO..or atleast not on a station I listen to!

I’m sure Elle is a great radio personality; however, the way this article was written, you would think that she’s the hatchet girl! People tend to leave abruptly when she joins the radio team.

Why don’t they just tell her to get the Elle outta here! She sounds like a valley girl..is she still boinking the Falcons RB?
Poor Ryan….now he has to take her back under his wing…..she’s cute, but not talented, and not as cute as Rashan. This is not a good look for V…too much turnover….and Wanda…stop rejoicing so loud!!!

I am an occasional watcher of the morning show’s CW 69 spot. Elle is very condescending, quick to interrupt, and thinks she knows everything. I could have sworn I heard her say she dropped out of West Georgia and had a substance abuse problem that day she and Ryan were on the topic. This was a few weeks ago when Ryan filled in. Why would a know-it-all open her mouth and remove all doubt. She needs to humble herself and maybe she can connect with her listeners. Anyway, Good luck Elle and good luck to Rashan.

@Niecy, what are you talking about the music? They are a station that competes with Kiss & Majic as well as Hot and Wild, so their musical composition competes with all those station throughout the day. If you don’t like the full-service ‘urban contemporary’ format then listen to the Urban ACs (Kiss & Majic), the Mainstream Urban (Hot), or the lone Rhythmic Top 40 station (Wild). However, there is a reason why V is the heritage urban format that has maintained this “middle-of-the-road” musical format and been very successful @ doing such.

Unfortunately, Elle is not going anywhere. She is “in” with Reggie Rouse so she will be there for a minute. I think that she is not a good fit for radio period. She would do much better on television but she does not have the personality or skills for radio.

Bring back Ms. Sophia (a real comedian) in the morning. She always can “clock” Frank when he tries to get “beside myself.” Wanda needs help on her jokes, none are funny nor political in nature.

@ Laughable, I believe she didn’t finish getting her Bachelors’ @ West Georgia, which is crazy because I would have gotten a degree at the very least in this horrendous job market. I don’t know about the other stuff though. She’s a pretty girl and has some potential, but my advice is to be display more humility and finish getting her BA/BS @ GSU as a back-up plan if the other shoe does drop. Radio is a very quixotic industry, where you can be here today and on the unemployment line tomorrow…

Elle D would definitely be better on tv. Frank and Wanda’s time have been up for awhile but the bosses are confused at this time. Give them time to work it out. Believe it or not, the blogs help.

Can you imagine what it would’ve been like if Miss Sophia was still at V103 when the Eddie Long Scandal Broke??? She would have clowned Frank Ski 365/24/7 over his Bishop.

Thank goodness she is gone!! I’m not trying to be hateful but I MUST keep it real. Elle Duncan is not a good fit at the radio station as a sidekick. she is much better on her own and NEVER should have replaced Miss Sophia. Over the last few weeks I had stopped listening to the morning show because I kept thinking about the whining, loud, child-like sound of her voice. I know a few times Wanda wanted to slap her across the fore-head and tell her to just shut up!! LETS START A “BRING MISS SOPHIA BACK PETITION”!! ANYBODY INTERESTED?

I am so glad that Elle is “out the door” she did not fit into the framing of the Frank and Wanda show. In my opinion, she was way “into herself”. She is not a parent, which shows when she commented about not every kid should be allowed to play in team sports… (The not so good players should just ride the bench), or the comments (when she was with ryan before) about not wanting to help up and coming artist – saying don’t give her a CD, It’s only going to wind up being a drink coaster.

Elle – do us all a favor, take yoga, get a video camera and kiss you own A$$. Your a great looking woman, but every since i really started listening to your “vibe” you have become ugly as all getup.

I hope the door hits ya where the lord split ya!!!.
