ATLANTA – Sept. 24, 2012 – Cox Media Group (CMG) Atlanta and WSB News/Talk’s Belinda Skelton will host her own weekend show, called “Belinda Skelton’s Atlanta Lifestyles,” beginning in January 2013.
Skelton has been executive producer of the Neal Boortz Show for the past 16 years. In June, Boortz announced his plans to retire after 20 years at News/Talk WSB and 42 years as the dean of talk radio in Atlanta.
“I already have the perfect job,” Skelton said. “We’re taking my perfect job and placing whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry on top.”
Ben Reed, CMG Atlanta’s Vice President and Market Manager, said, “Think of Pinterest, Martha Stewart or the Oprah brand where lifestyle can be defined by everything from food, wine and design to family, entertainment, and local events.” Skelton is a University of Georgia graduate with a degree in Interior Design. “I can’t think of something more perfect for me than this show,” she added. “This speaks to my core being and everything that excites me!”
Skelton continues as Neal’s executive producer, managing his daily commentary, appearances, and guest hosting duties. Belinda Skelton’s Atlanta Lifestyles will air Saturdays from 1 to 3 p.m.
