Mid-day WAOK-AM host Rashad Richey, who is based in Atlanta, recently signed a syndication deal with the same company that syndicates Roland Martin. He is heard on WAOK from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

He can now also be heard on stations in Buffalo, N.Y., Baltimore and Henderson, N.C., to name a few.

Richey has been with WAOK for 14 months and took over Sidney Wood's slot last spring.

It's Goff's hometown. “Feels good to go back to where I started,” Goff said in a statement. “There are steps in life and this is the next one. The Score was more than a radio station for me, it was family.”

Atlanta Magazine has a nostalgic 90s issue out and my former AJC colleague and Peach Buzz maven Richard Eldredge wrote a nice piece on the Morning X. Jimmy Baron gave him a great anecdote about his most surreal 99X moment: "I was on the golf course and my phone rang. It was a listener who wanted to get in touch with this kid songwriter we'd put on the air at 5:30 after he won a station contest. So I ended up giving John Mayer's phone number to Elton John."
