There are lots of comings and goings on the radio this week as Steve Harvey's morning show on The Beat signed off on Friday and Suicide Girls Radio joined the Indie 103 lineup over the weekend. Harvey's popular show continued to do well in the mornings but was very expensive to produce and failed in its efforts at syndication. Former Laker and Best Damn Sports Show correspondent John Salley took over the slot for KKBT this morning.

Suicide Girls Radio is a relationship/advice show hosted by Missy Suicide and airing both live on the radio and the web. It sounds like a fresh take on KROQ's Love Lines. The show airs from Midnight to 2 AM on Sunday nights.

Meanwhile, For every Jack there's a Jill. Franklin Avenue notes the launch of 92.7 Jill FM - a soft adult contemporary channel with the ladies in mind. Because ladies love soft rock, apparently. Someone should tell that to the women we know.
