V-103's Porsche Foxx Fired, Again

Via Porsche Foxx is gone from V-103 —- again.

Details are sketchy. Program director Reggie Rouse sent an e-mail Wednesday informing staff about Foxx’s departure, and she was taken off the list of DJs on the V-103 Web site. Her second stint at V-103 as midday host lasted just over 16 months.

Foxx was a popular afternoon jock at V-103 until the station fired her after a very public DUI arrest in late 2004. She pleaded guilty to the charge in summer 2005, receiving community service, probation and a stint in alcohol rehab. Rick Caffey, general manager at V-103, last year said he rehired her because he felt she had earned a second shot.

“It was successful, very enlightening, very educational, ” Foxx told the AJC about her rehab in July 2007. “I’m not afraid to talk about it.”

Foxx —- whose real name is Stephanie Calhoun —- and her bosses couldn’t be reached for comment.

I hope Ramona Debreaux, who has been filling in for Porsche this week, will take over the position permanently. Flipping between Ramona and 107.9's mid-day diva Rashan Ali during my 10am-2pm weekdays has been music to my ears!!! These 2 ladies BOTH brighten up radio on eachof their respective stations. It's sad to see Porche Foxx go but her show was so poorly produced that I won't miss much....

It's amazing how someone could post something without knowing all the facts. AJC only said that Porshe Foxx departed V-103. It didn't say she was fired. Being that she is a dear friend of mine I do know that this post is totally untrue. If it were trust me Frank & Wanda would have been the first to say something about. Not to mention AJC heading would have read V-103 DJ fired again. Check out Sandra Rose she didn't say one word and she is always the first to tell everything.
