Cynthia Young leaves Kiss 104.1 

  • comment(1)

By Rodney Ho

Mid-day host Cynthia Young is out at Kiss 104.1.

Young had worked at the R&B station part-time from 1996 to 2007, then as a full-time mid-day jock since 2007.

While deejaying part-time at Kiss, Young held a second job in accounting and operations at a hotel, according to a 2010 AJC story.

“I would work overnight shifts at the hotel and then drive to the radio station and sleep in my car until 10, get up, and do radio till 3. I did that for years, ” Young said at the time. 

Sasha the Diva is temporarily covering the10 a.m. to 3 p.m. slot.

Tony Kidd, vice president for programming for Cox Radio Atlanta, said he has posted the job and interested people can apply for the next 30 days.

He said he released Young early from her contract but couldn't comment further.

Kiss 104.1  is operated by Cox Media Group, which includes The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Here was Young's bio on the website:

This Quintessential Radio personality with the silky smooth voice is Cynthia Young. Cynthia's warmth and sense of humor makes the listener feel comfortable with her from the very moment her voice is heard. This Buffalo Born Scorpio and Who's Who in Atlanta Radio, has been a radio personality for over 20 years. Cynthia's career has taken her to various radio markets over the years, with most of those years in Atlanta. She has strong commitment for "Community" with annual contributions to local and national organizations.

With her full schedule as a Radio Personality, Cynthia is never too busy "To Serve" and give back to the very audience that enjoys her talent on KISS 104.1 Atlanta's Old School R&B Station.
