Legendary hip-hop artist, rapper and radio personality Chubb Rock and Buffalo’s own Carol Blackmon, an Atlanta radio and TV personality, debuted as the new morning show hosts onWUFO Power 96 FM Monday (Jan. 6). The talented young media personalities were introduced to the Buffalo community (for the lovely Ms. Blackmon it was a homecoming!) by WUFO owner/CEO Sheila Brown during a launch party December 27th at the Acqua Lounge. They beat out three other syndicated shows that were pitching for the coveted 6-10 a.m. morning show spot. Sheila recalled having to have to make a decision almost on the spot! But Carol made their package the most attractive for WUFO she said. The lovely and talented Ms. Blackmon, born and raised here, is a Bennet High graduate and made her mark in radio locally before moving to Atlanta to follow her dream a number of years ago. “As a sister running a radio station I had to bring a sister back home!” said Sheila. Monday’s launch was “amazing” she added. The new morning show team is made up of four on air personalities whose syndicated show broadcasts out of Atlanta. “We’re just one of their stations across the country,” Sheila explained. Carol’s amazing family was definitely in the Acqua house” at the local launch! Be sure to tune in daily 6-10 a.m. Power 96.5 FM WUFO FM .
