5WPR: DJ’s “Buc Wild” and “Star” To Return To Radio
November 27, 2007
The AP is reporting today that controversial DJ’s “Buc Wild” and “Star” will be returning to radio. What station, you ask? Well, that is being kept under wraps, according to Bryan Pierce of 5WPR, who was quoted in the article:
DJ Star, whose real name is Troi Torain, and his half-brother, Timothy Joseph, or Buc Wild, will host a morning show on a city FM station, said Bryan Pierce of 5W Public Relations. The name of the station, which was being represented by 5W, will not be disclosed before a news conference Wednesday, Pierce said.
In May 2006, Torain, who was co-host of the syndicated “Star & Buc Wild Morning Show” on Clear Channel Radio’s Power 105.1 FM, offered $500 to any listener who could provide information about the rival DJ’s daughter’s school and used racial slurs when talking about his wife, who is part Asian. He said he wanted to sexually abuse the daughter and urinate on her.
The agency has a deep roster of (relatively) less controversial hip-hop clients including Swizz Beatz, Young Jeezey, Ice Cube and Nick Cannon. Who’s going to spill the beans on what station 5W is repping? If you have an idea, email us at prnewser at mediabistro.com
