*Boy oh boy, Detroit radio veteran Frankie Darcell was not expecting what she got on Thursday morning.

According to reports, the now former afternoon DJ at Clear Channel owned Mix 92.3 WMXD was let go without notice. But she says with the help of friends and family, she made it through the roughest moments.

“I’ve been humbled by the many calls from people who have reached out to me. I’ve been empowered by a lot of folks and a lot of love.”

“The girl from Brooklyn” made her way to Charlotte, N.C. with the plan to only stay for three years. But life took a different turn and her career caused her to grow roots over 11 years.

“It’s turned into a very lucrative career.  I hope that I have been as good to Detroit as Detroit has been to me,” she says.”We can’t pick and choose what happens to us,” the ousted air personality tells The News. “Detroit has become my home. I expect to be here and continue to do some amazing things. I’m excited about what’s to come. I don’t know what it is, but it creates great opportunity.”

Not that it matters, especially to Frankie, but she wasn’t the only one let go by the broadcaster. Clear Channel also parted ways with five other well-liked on-air talents.

A local Clear Channel vice president is quoted as saying the company wants to be “taking advantage of the latest cutting-edge technology and organizational structure so we can continue to operate as effectively and efficiently as possible.”
