DJ Simpson in talks to end contract
Iconic morning radio personality Donnie Simpson has begun negotiations to terminate his contract with WPGC-FM, a move that could bring Simpson’s 32-year career on Washington’s airwaves to an end.
Simpson has more than a year left on his current two-year contract with the CBS-owned station but appears likely to leave before March 11, the anniversary of his hiring by CBS-owned WPGC, according to people familiar with the discussions.
Simpson has been one of the most popular deejays in the Washington region for decades, with a golden-throated voice and an easygoing personality. His weekday program has been a morning wake-up call for local listeners for more than a generation; he has also been instrumental in introducing a long list of R&B and soul artists via his radio program and “Video Soul,” the interview and performance program he hosted on Black Entertainment Television for years.
