After nearly two decades on the air at V-103, Ryan Cameron, 52, announced to loyal listeners on Friday, January 26, 2018 that he’s dropping the mic. The Ryan King’s reign in the coveted morning show spot ends on next Friday, February 2, 2018.

During his announcement, Cameron stressed this decision is totally his. “I have done everything I can in this field. It’s time for another chapter in my life.”

He first joined V-103 in 1991 after leaving West Georgia College. In 1996, he held down Atlanta’s first rap station, then Hot 97.5 ( Hot 107.9), where La La (Vázquez) Anthony and Chris (Lover Lover) “Ludacris” Bridges, interned before making their forays into their music/film and television/film careers, respectively. In 2005, Cameron came back to his roots as afternoon host at WVEE and to eventually assume the top spot as morning show host at the end of 2012, following Frank Ski’s exit.

“My tenure here at V-103 has been the most fulfilling thing I could ever have done but I have to feel there’s something else that I can do.”

Cameron is a partner at Atlanta-based startup and branding firm, Rakanter.

“I have yacht dreams. So I want you to have yacht dreams, ” he closes.
