Since community activist and syndicated radio personality Michael Baisden has been put out to pasture and is no longer being broadcast on his home base station WRKS 98.7 KISS FM, he is now petitioning to get himself back on the air.

Not only has the civically aware Baisden been given the boot, but radio personality Tom Joyner and crooner-turned-radio jock Keith Sweat have also lost their syndicated slots.

Baisden, who is a best-selling author, mentor, and motivational speaker, is hardly taking the recent shuffling lying down.  He has started a petition to get his show added to the WBLS lineup, which includes the syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show.

Listen to Baisden’s show on Trayvon Martin here:

Both WRKS and WBLS are New York City-based stations, and the merger of the two, which was announced last week, has left urban radio listeners in the huge metropolis with just a single station, even though both broadcasters have been immensely popular with their audiences over the years, averaging well over a million listeners a week respectively.

The monumental staples have celebrated the heritage of Black music and Baiden’s show was extremely popular.  Still, both companies were on shaky ground financially, though, and the decision was made that a single station would stand stronger as one entity.  Industry experts have said that this kind of merger is common, because it is difficult for multiple urban stations to be successful.

If you are a Baisden fan and want his show back on terrestrial radio, sign the petition at Change.org.  He is also urging fans to call the WBLS station to voice their opinion about the changes in a respectful way at 212-447-1000.
