*First Sheryl Underwood launched her new afternoon radio show. Now AlwaysAList.com reports  D.L. Hughley will become the latest comedian to enter the afternoon radio game.

The King of Comedy had delved into the radio realm before with his former show “The D.L. Hughley Morning Show” in New York City.

Hughley will host a show that will be syndicated by Reach Media (formerly Syndication One). Word is, Hughley’s show will replace the struggling “Skip Murphy in the Afternoon Show.”

Both news anchor Jacque Reid and veteran radio personality DeDe McGuire are being considered to co-host with Hughley.

Due to the fact that “contracts were not finalized yet,” the launch date for Hughley’s new show may be pushed back from it’s original plan of ‘mid to late August.”

Reportedly, Hughley is in Dallas this week meeting with Reach Media executives.
