One famous Jamaican radio personality has succeeded another at Link Up Radio as Miss Kitty has succeeded Kingsley 'Ragashanti' Stewart as the host of the radio station's morning talk show.
The self-professed 'Fluffy Diva' began her stint in the 6-10 a.m. time slot as the host of Mawning Link Up with Miss Kitty on Monday, replacing Ragashanti after the former host of Ragashanti Live resigned following a heated row with Link Up Radio's manager, David ‘Squeeze’ Annakie.
Despite facing some heat from a section of Ragashanti's loyal fan base, Miss Kitty told the Jamaica STAR that she received support from the popular talk show host to take on the role.
"Raga saw it fit to resign and I wish him all the best. I must commend him also because some persons were making some very disparaging remarks about me, and he went in my defence to tell them to not bash me. I am very humbled by that and I am glad I have his blessings,” she said. "I was contacted before the whole Raga saga. It was during my negotiations that the controversy between him and Squeeze developed. I hold Raga in high esteem and I have great respect for him. Mi and him a come from far, so the issue with him and Squeeze has nothing to do with me.
Miss Kitty's appointment to the talk show host role marks the first time any female host has taken up a lead hosting role on the New York based radio station. She says she has already garnered many plaudits for her work just days into her new role.
"I'm really flabbergasted, but in a good way. The response has been really good. People who didn't know of me, or only vaguely heard about me, now have an opportunity to get to know me better,” she said. “I'm the youngest and the only lead female to be on Link Up radio so, come what may, I have made history on the station.”
Mawning Link Up with Miss Kitty features a number of segments dedicated to news and entertainment with a bit of comedic flare. This role adds to her growing list of responsibilities as the co-host of RJR 94 FM's Ruption and as a judge on the renowned Jamaican talent show, Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall.
