Congratulations are in order for rap star Da Brat who has a new gig as a radio personality on “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show”. This comes merely days after Claudia Jordan announced her departure from the show. The addition of Da Brat makes her the third female co-host the show has had in less than two years.
via the Atlanta-Journal Constitution:
Rickey Smiley‘s third female co-host in just over a year on his syndicated morning show is rap star Da Brat.
Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntee Harris, today replaced “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Claudia Jordan, who spent a year with the show but was let go earlier this week. Da Brat will be the third female cast member on the show in just over a year.
Last year, Jordan took over for the popular Ebony Steele, who had been with Smiley for seven years but was also released from duties without explanation.
She read the news this morning at 7:14 a.m., including the Confederate battle flag taken down at South Carolina and Bobby Brown‘s new daughter.
Smiley’s morning show, heard on more than 60 markets nationwide, is produced in downtown Atlanta and heard on Hot 107.9 locally.
Porsha Williams remains as the female representative on the syndicated TV show “Dish Nation.
Da Brat has been on the show several times as a guest, so she should easily fit right on in in her new position. Go Brat!
