Darden, who has been the stations Program Director for about the past 8 years, will now be focusing his attention more on the mic as on of Hot 97’s personalities. He will remain as acting PD until a suitable one is found to fill his shoes.

Fortunately, I have had tremendous success doing both on-air and PD roles, and EMMIS let me choose where I would be happiest. Mornings, TV and assisting in programming makes sense with everything HOT 97 and I have happening today, so I chose creative over corporate. See you all at 5a tomorrow.

In 2003 Darden joined the WQHT family as Music Director until ultimately becoming the Program Director for the station in 2007. You can catch Ebro on the Mornings Show from 5am-10am and on the new VH1 show This Is Hot97 airing March 31st.
