"D.C. is like home for me," Ski said in a statement. "This is going to be a powerful show that will feature buzz-worthy pop culture and political topics ranging from election coverage to the latest antics of reality television."

Ski left Atlanta's V-103 after 14 years and building an audience of more than 1 million listeners a week. He's been a host and spokesperson for several charitable and educational initiatives, including the Civil Rights Walk of Fame, Rainbow Push Coalition, The Latin American Association, and 100 Black Men. His "Frank Ski's Kids Foundation" has provided financial assistance to youth for more than 10 years.

Ski began his radio career in Washington, D.C. in the early 1990s before moving on to Baltimore and then to Atlanta in 1998.
