(New York Daily News) – Two longstanding institutions of New York black radio have left the air.

“Sunday Classics,” the last show hosted by the late Hal Jackson, finished its run on WBLS (107.5 FM) late last month.

Since Jackson’s death in May 2012, it had been continued by his wife, Debi B., and his executive producer, Clay Berry.

At sister station WLIB (1190 AM), Imhotep Gary Byrd’s Sunday night talk-and-information show, “GBE Mindflight,” had its last show on Easter Sunday.

Byrd’s “Express Yourself,” 7-9 p.m. Sundays, is now simulcast on WBLS and WLIB.
