Gossip Bits: Miss Jones Is Out At Hot 97!+Alicia Keys Retiring At 30?

I know some folks who are going to love this news.  The infamous Miss Jones of "Jonesy" in the Morning  is over and done with NY's Hot 97 station as of July 21st.  And she's being replaced by Big Boy and his "Neighborhood" crew. In a press release sent out to select media on Friday, here's the statement given in regards to the morning show change up: On Monday, July 21, Emmis rhythmic WQHT (Hot 97)/New York will make a rare move in morning drive. Current morning show "Miss Jones in the Morning" will be replaced by current Hot 97 part-time on-air personalities Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg (5-7 a.m.) and ABC Radio Networks' "Big Boy's Neighborhood" (7-10 a.m.). Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg have spent several months on-air together hosting a morning show from 8-10 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and they have also worked on-air at Hot 97 separately. About the upgrade to a.m. drive, Rosenberg says, "Mom will be proud. It is every Jewish mother's dream to have her son do mornings on Hot 97." Cipha Sounds, who also hosts "The Cipha Sounds Effect w/Angela Yee" weekday mornings from 8 a.m.-noon on Sirius' Shade 45, added, "This sounds cool to me." About the addition of the "Neighborhood," PD Ebro Darden says, "Big Boy has an unmatched reputation for being entertaining. He also has great relationships with artists. Putting Big Boy on Hot 97 in New York City helps keep the high standard of radio happening for us." Rumors are swirling that she was fired because she messed with the wrong person this time around and people aren't trying to put up with her foolishness, ignorant comments/actions on air, and smartassness anymore.  Other rumors say she left on her own because she wants to spend more time with her kids.  And still, other rumors say she's moving over to Philly's Power 99.   Whatev.  Congrats to Big Boy! News on Alicia Keys when you read the rest...

Sources are reporting that Alicia Keys has announced she wants to retire by the age of 30.  She wants to work extrememly hard now so that in just three years she can spend her time traveling the world.  Back in '06, she traveled to Egypt to take some time off from the pressures of fame as it was all getting to her and she needed a break.  But now, she's working hard and preparing herself for a fabulous "retirement": "I am working hard now so I have the choice to retire when I want.  I would like to travel the world and stay in places instead of having to move on like I do now. I want to experience difference cultures."
I have a feeling she'll be back soon after.

me dont live in ny so this

me dont live in ny so this news is lost on me...i agree w/everyone traveling is only going to keep her busy but for so long then she'll be back either in the studio or in front of the camera. look at the rolling stones & earth wind and fire...them fools don't even need the moeny, they just like to tour (and all that money doesnt' hurt). i hope she emerges w/a new voice like she did last time-i don't like the pitch or whatever she's using now but knowing her it's likely to change again.

I still don't get the 1... 2 and top 10 in the post shit. Do you get a prize? I mean whats the big deal.....being first, but you still ain't saying nothing about the topic. IDK....just don't get it. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. SMH.....Sheessh Anyway Ms. Jones needs to give it a rest.....her relationship with the artist is what damaged her career......you are not Wendy Williams.

It's about time Ms. Jones was

It's about time Ms. Jones was off the air. They should've got rid of her when they got rid of Star and Buckwild in the mornings. And I agree with everyone else. Alicia won't be gone for long.

I hope retirement at 30 works

I hope retirement at 30 works out for Alicia, but entertainers can only travel the world for so long before they start to miss performing on stage. I'll give her less than 5 years after retirement.

I don't think she will be

I don't think she will be gone for long either. I like Alicia Keys her style is different which is why she will be back. When she start listening to radio or watching 106 and park she will see she is needed because most of the music they play now isn't really worth playin.
