Maria More, whose real name is Maria Collins, has left R&B station Majic 107.5/97.5 after seven years as mid-day host.
She first came to Atlanta in 2008 to do mid-days at sister hip-hop station Hot 107.9.
“I had an amazing time at both Hot and Majic, wrapped up my show there at number #1 (25-54), but just came to the point where I outgrew the position,” More wrote in an email.
“I am excited for the next Midday Talent who will have the opportunity to serve Atlanta in that role,” she added. “II also look forward to staying connected with my listeners on social media and at community events across the city.”
More will focus on her five-year-old virtual fitness program MPowered Fitness by Maria More, which is a combination of balanced nutrition, exercise, behavioral change and group support. She also has an apparel line and a new podcast “Mind, Body & Business with Maria More.” And she has been helping out with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show through the end of October.
Former WSB-TV investigative reporter Aaron Diamant, who left the station in 2019, has been named a vice president at production company Lucie Content, run by fellow former WSB-TV anchor Craig Lucie.
Diamant worked for more than two decades as an award-winning investigative journalist at several stations including nine years at Channel 2 Action News. He left the station in 2020 to become Vice Chancellor of Communications for the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
A year ago, he joined Lucie Content in a freelance role but has now been elevated to full-time senior vice president of content and development. “Given his background, he can quickly identify stories that resonate with our partners’ clients, even internally with their staffs,” Lucie said.
Lucie’s clients include Gray Television, the Taylor English law firm, an operator of senior living communities and some wealth management firms.
