"The Forum" radio show host Sherwin Hughes and WNOV part ways
Radio host Sherwin Hughes is no longer a part of WNOV 860, as the radio station has reportedly cancelled his political radio talk show, "The Forum."
Hughes first tweeted about parting ways with the radio station from his personal Twitter account, citing "irreconcilable differences with station management" as the reason for the split. In a later tweet from The Forum's official Tweet account, Hughes clarified that the show had been cancelled.
After a successful six-year run, "The Forum" has been cancelled. I am grateful for all of the love and support my community has shown me over these years. It was more than a radio show. We laughed. We cried. We argued.— The Forum860 (@TheForum860) July 28, 2018
We debated. Ultimately, we grew. God bless you all.
Current WNOV program director Homer Blow confirmed Hughes's departure from the radio station to OnMilwaukee, saying an official statement will be released next week.
Hughes began hosting the current iteration of "The Forum" in July of 2012. The show was originally started in 2010 on Blowradio.com (Blow's online radio broadcast) prior to Hughes's arrival, but the show's run was short before it was reconfigured for Hughes two years later. Prior to his time on WNOV, Hughes also hosted the retro hip-hop radio show "The Old School Basement Party" on 98.3FM from 2008 until 2010.
