Is V-103 considering Al B Sure for Quiet Storm?

By RODNEY HO, filed Sept. 2, 2010

It's been more than seven months since V-103 abruptly let go Joyce Littel from the Quiet Storm after a lengthy tenure.

There were rumors soon after that actors Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe were considering a syndicated night show. That didn't pan out. Now the latest name thrown out is Al B  Sure, the R&B singer best known for late 1980s hit "Nite & Day."

A Sure representative at Chicago-based Owens Morris Communications Kenny Johnson confirmed that Sure has talked with V-103. But Kenny said nothing has been signed: "He talks to a lot of different stations." Rick Caffey, GM of V-103, per policy, declined comment.

Sure has done radio before,  including a show on Hot 92.3 in Los Angeles until last year. He was most recently on the reality show "Ultimate Merger" on TV One starring Omarosa in a "Bachelorette"-style program. Sure made the final three but she ultimately chose nobody.

V-103 has gone without a jock for that late-night show since Littel was let go.
