HOT97’s Ebro Darden Stepping Down As Program Director?

Ebro Darden is stepping down from his role as program director at HOT97. He also served as on-air talent and was preparing for the station’s forthcoming reality show This Is Hot 97 on VH1.

“Fortunately, I have had tremendous success doing both on-air and PD roles, and EMMIS let me choose where I would be happiest,” he said in a press release. “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.” Meanwhile, the PD position is now up for grabs on job sites. Maybe, the back story will appear on This Is Hot 97, set to air March 31 at 10:30pm on VH1.
