Ebony Arrington, popularly-known as Ebony Steele, is an immensely talented and successful on-air personality, comedian and business owner. The Birmingham native began her broadcast career at WBHJ-FM (95.7 JAMZ) where she landed her first on-air gig as the co-host of the #1 rated Cox Buckwild Morning Show. Ebony caught her first real break after she was introduced to Comedian Rickey Smiley at a Thom McCann shoe store. Little did she know, that chance encounter would lead to a spot on one of the top Hip-Hop morning shows in the country 11 years later. During her time as co-host of the nationally-syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Ebony utilized her comedic agility to write for the show, perform her daily hit stand-up sketches “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That” and “Ain’t Nobody Saying Nothing”, and lend her voice to the wildly popular prank phone call series by Rickey Smiley and Roy Wood, Jr. Because of it’s popularity the Rickey Smiley Morning Show was selected as one of five national radio shows featured on FOX Network Television’s nightly entertainment show, Dish Nation.
