Frank Ski has joined CBS Atlanta's "Just a Minute" team of commentators.
His first commentary has not been scheduled but he is familiar with the format. He did some 11 Alive commentaries a few years back dubbed "I'm Just Sayin' "
He's scooping up jobs. He recently joined Bounce TV as a contributor. And the former V-103 morning host made a big splash last month re-joining his old radio station, now on weekends.
Ski will join an existing team such as former 11 Alive journalist Mark Pettit, commentator and humorist Hollis Gillespie, former Channel 2 Action News reporter Sally Sears (now also an investigative reporter), former Fox 5 and 11 Alive anchor Ken Watts, GPB's Bill Nigut and former columnist and civil rights leader Tom Houck. (The entire list is here.)
Former Fox 5 anchor Amanda Davis remains on the "Just a Minute" team but has yet to air one after a DUI last year scuttled her introduction. CBS Atlanta has left the door open for her to return whenever she is ready and I hear she is now ready to be back on air.
"Just a Minute" was the brainchild of GM Mark Pimental. He debuted the segment last year, which airs right before 6 p.m. Archives are available online.
Channel 2 Action News weekend anchor Matt Belanger has left the station after about a year. WSB spokesman Steve Riley confirmed his departure but had no further comment. Belanger started a new Twitter page on April 28.
Kiss 104.1's Flashback Festival is in its 21st year, having brought a raft of classic R&B artists from the Whispers to Chaka Khan.
This year is no exception: acts include Parliament Funkadelic and George Clinton, The Original Lakeside and A Taste of Honey.
It will again be at Lakewood Amphitheatre on August 6. Tickets are available here for as little as $17 apiece.
My colleague Melissa Ruggieri reported while I was on vacation about the acts for Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash at Philips Arena June 18 including T.I., Young Jeezy, Kevin Gates and Rich Homie Quan.
Kiss and WSB are both part of Cox Media Group, which also includes the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
