The “Monica Pearson Show” will make its debut on Kiss on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014, from noon to 2 p.m.
“I am extremely excited about working for KISS 104.1, Atlanta’s best R&B,” said Pearson. “It allows me to return to my first love, radio, working with great music, great people and to remain in the Cox Media Group family. This is an opportunity for people to see me in a different light. After all, I consider myself the Madonna of broadcasting — always changing.”
On Dec. 30, Pearson filled in for Sasha the Diva and received an outpouring of support on Twitter. Pearson’s radio format will include telling stories, airing interviews and, of course, playing music, which will include some from the Kiss playlist with the remainder being some of her personal R&B favorites, such as Usher and Mary J. Blige.
Pearson was the first woman and first minority to anchor the daily evening news in Atlanta, where she worked for 37 years at WSB-TV. She can be found on Twitter @Monicawsb.
