Idris Turner, a native of Little Rock, AR, began her broadcasting career in 2002 when she was selected to compete in a contest for Power 92 Jams.  She was a natural on the radio and the audience loved her! Initially, when she came on the scene she was known as “Absolute.” Idris had strong ties to the Independent Music scene in Little Rock and surrounding areas, and she has worked with several artist from her hometown which made her perfect for the job! Idris was the most heard weekend jock for several years.  She was so popular, “The Lead Dog” Broadway Joe,  asked her to do the gossip for the weekend edition of his show.  She eagerly jumped at the opportunity and that’s when she became known as the “Skirt Wit Tha Dirt.”

In May of 2017,  Ms. Evangeline Parker announced she would be leaving “The Broadway Joe Morning Show” to pursue  another opportunity. This left a void in the morning shows cast and Idris was asked to fill it! She was a great fit for the show! She continues to host her weekend feature show “Back N Tha Day Sunday”, which has been #1 in the market three years in a row!

She’s worked with youth organizations like “Life Skills Youth (LSY)”, “Westside Community Center”, “Dr. Martin Luther King Commission”, LRSD and “King Head Start.” She recently started a book club called  “Story Time With Skirt” for all ages!  The club encourages literacy at three Central Arkansas Library locations.

She participated in the 1st Annual Spellebration fundraiser where she was one of the top three contestants. Idris was also acknowledged for her work in the community by Governor Asa Hutchinson. She is also very passionate about bringing awareness to the HIV/AIDS epidemic; and has been recognized for her work and mentorship with the LR Kappa League. Idris enjoys writing, shopping, watching movies, reading and hanging out with family and friends on her free time. She is continuing to advance her radio career, and was recently promoted to Urban Promotions Director at Cumulus Media.
