*So where is D.L. Hughley? That’s what folks are asking because all of a sudden he just disappeared from the New York airwaves in morning at KISS-FM.
Well here’s what we know. According to Dana Hall here at Radio-Info, on Monday the funnyman announced, with no warning, that it was his last day – “without additional explanation.”
The station says that he’s taking off to do a movie, but the morning crew’s page is gone from the website.
Well, the station may be on to something because we came across this item at movieweb.com regarding Hughley:
The original king of comedy D.L. Hughley will also guest star in Hawaii Five-0’s third episode as a character named Skeet. Skeet is described to me as an inmate serving a double life sentence who challenges McGarrett to a game of hoops.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, late last year, there was controversy about the business arrangements surrounding Hughley’s appearance on the urban AC, and about who was paying him: station owner Emmis, or his potential syndicator, URBan Radio.
So maybe the money got funny, but the comedian/morning show host isn’t laughing, if you know what we mean. We shall see.
