Olivia Fox Returns to Radio...In Washington D.C.
Those who remember how WBPT-FM personality Olivia Fox was unceremoniously removed from the air by Clear Channel back in September may be pleased to note she's landed another radio gig. The downside: it's located in Washington D.C.
In fact, Fox is headed back to the station she left before comnig to Tampa, WKYS-FM, hosting an evening show called Out of the Box with Olivia Fox. Fox left WKYS back in 2002, when her partnership with popular morning guy Russ Parr disintegrated and she was terminated by station owner Radio One Inc.
Whatever happened then must have been resolved; Fox now is returning to work for Radio One in the evenings, beginning Sunday. From the release:
"Olivia says she will pick up where she left off in the DC area some 5 years ago with her commitment to her signature, Olivia Loves the Kids campaign. Olivia intends to reach out to school children throughout the metro area, through speaking engagements and other events, to help them understand the importance of setting achievable goals, so they can go on to be productive adults.
Ms. Fox adds, “I have never forgotten the support I received during the past 11 years while I was on the airwaves in the DC metro area, and off the airwaves. Regardless of where I have worked, DC has always shown me love. I know while I was in Tampa, Florida there was not a week that would go by that someone from the DC area would email me or call and say, “Girl, when are you coming back to DC? We miss you!”
I’d say, soon, I hope to come back soon. Well that time has come, and as I always say... you just never know how things are going to go, and I couldn't be more excited”.
