We were very happy for our colleague and friend, Jasmine Sanders, who recently began as the co-host on the nationally syndicated “The Skip Murphy Show in the Afternoon” radio program. The show, which replaced the long running Michael Baisden show in the evening drive segment, promises to entertain and inform listeners across 50 markets and will feature “celebrity guests and will play Urban and R&B hits from 80s, 90s and today.” Skip Murphy is a radio vet who has been heard across the country for more than 30 years. He will be joined by the multifaceted Jasmine Sanders, who has made quite a name for herself both behind the mic and in front of the camera.
Enjoy our chat below:
soulhead: Jasmine, you have had the opportunity to work in various time slots, markets and radio formats. When we discovered you, you were doing middays at WBLS in New York with a definite Urban AC feel. That said, what is your favorite format?
Jasmine: Although I have worked several formats, I absolutely love Urban AC! When done right, there is no better format of music.
soulhead: How will the new show be different than your previous shows? Do you see talking about relationships and dating? What will the music be like?
soulhead: With consolidation, PPM, syndication and other issues impacting Black radio sometimes disproportionately, what do you think are the 3 key factors that radio operators and personalities should be considering in this changing landscape?
- Maintain great relationships
- Diversify your talents
- Learn to masterfully adapt
Jasmine: Yes, you will! We were actually green lit for another season of Culture List on Centric and I couldn’t be more delighted. I love being in front of the camera just as much as I love being behind the mic. Season 2 of Culture List will begin airing in June.
soulhead: As a radio personality, you come into contact with a lot of artists and I’m sure have developed personal relationships with a few of them. How often are you in a situation where you like the person and maybe like some of their past work but are not feeling their new material?
Jasmine: Yes, we are currently syndicated in about 50 markets and growing. We are also streamed on-line on the stations’ website in each respected market.
soulhead: We know you are into physical fitness and obviously, music, but what else do you like to do in your spare time?
Jasmine: I’m an outdoorsy type of girl. I love being outside all the time. If I had my way, I would spend everyday on a beach lol. I also enjoy sports, cooking and any activity that makes me laugh.
