One side is saying she got fired, but MoNique is insisting she has quit her radio show. Either way that goes, the gig is up:
MoNique’s syndicated radio show will end its run on Wednesday (March 18) after just eight months on the air.
Radio Online is reporting that the comedienne has chosen to shut down “The Mo’Nique Show” in order to “further her career in television, film and comedy.” However, the Web site RadioSyndication Talk says the show was cancelled by distributor Syndication One.
“Details are still coming in but the handwriting was on the wall when after a much heralded debut on KDAY Los Angeles, the show was removed after just four months due to a format shift,” the Web site reported Saturday. “The same scenario happened in Philadelphia in January, leaving the show with less than seven affiliates.”
“The Mo’Nique Show” had aired in five of the top ten markets including Los Angeles and Houston.
“I would like to thank my fabulous board of directors for their daily inspiration and feedback and Radio One for the opportunity to further my entertainment brand through radio,” Mo’Nique said in a statement.
This big ass broad has nothing to worry about. There are greener pastures in tv and film so she can graze as much as she wants.
