Star is gonna be back on the radio (of Star and Buc Wild)

...for those that used to listen to that radio show in the mornings....


DJ Star returns to radio
Tuesday, November 27, 2007


A hip-hop disc jockey who was fired for making threatening racial and sexual remarks about a rival's wife and 4-year-old daughter last year will return to the FM airwaves.

DJ Star, whose real name is Troi Torain, and his half brother, Timothy Joseph, known as Buc Wild, will host a morning show on a city FM station, said Bryan Pierce of 5W Public Relations.

The station name will not be disclosed before tomorrow, Pierce said.

Star, the morning deejay who was not only fired from his last gig, but arrested, may be returning to New York radio early next year on a new top-40 station.

A press conference has been scheduled for tomorrow morning to confirm his hiring, and while the announcement doesn't specify details, the station reportedly is WNYZ, which broadcasts on 87.7 FM on Long Island.

WNYZ is licensed as a low-power television station (Ch. 6), but it is currently only broadcasting audio, not video, on the 87.7 FM frequency.

Its current format is Russian popular music, but with the hiring of Star, it will reportedly switch to top-40.

Current plans apparently call for the format to start early next year, with video and streaming.

No one was available for comment yesterday, but Star had previously said he wanted a gig where he could bring back his whole team of Buc Wild, White Trash Helene, Miguel Candelaria and Chris the Queer.

Star was fired from WWPR (105.1 FM) in May 2006 after on-air remarks about what he would do to the young child of rival DJ Envy on WQHT (97.1 FM).

He was then arrested and served three days of community service.

Star maintained that no one could have taken his comments as a serious threat and sued Clear Channel, owner of WWPR, claiming the company hired him in part to make incendiary comments and then tried to distance itself when he got in trouble.

That suit is in the courts, with a ruling expected next on Clear Channel's motion to dismiss.
