CNN: Hughley was selected to host and write a comedic news-show on CNN which covers global happenings in politics, entertainment, sports and pop culture, titled D. L.

Hughley Morning Show premiered on WRKS (more popularly known as 98.7 Kiss FM), an urban adult contemporary station in New York City. His co-hosts included former BET news correspondent Jacque Reid. Airing from 6-10 am, the show placed Hughley in direct competition with his fellow "King of Comedy" Steve Harvey, whose nationally-syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show airs in New York on WBLS (Kiss FM's longtime rival). There were plans to take Hughley's show into syndication as well, but a dispute regarding his salary erupted between Kiss FM's parent company and the potential syndication company. In August 2010, Kiss FM dropped the show from its schedule, and Hughley moved on to other endeavors.
