Farewell Mr. Simpson...
Donnie Simpson, a Washington, DC institution, has signed off the airwaves after a 32 year stint as the voice of millions. Simpson is calling it quits after contract negotiations with CBS radio stalled.
Simpson will have 13 1/2 months to plan his next move due to a non-compete clause in his CBS contract. Simpson is mum about his next move, but says that he's not done and that he's excited about what God has in store.
I had the pleasure of working alongside Donnie during my tenure at Black Entertainment Television, and he was always a class act while serving as the host of BET's flagship, Video Soul.
Donny, thanks for all the years, and we're all looking forward to the next chapter!
