Neil Sirni of York-Hill will help handle the management duties for the the fan-favorite DJ, who hosts his own weekly improv comedy show caled Take It Personal. Since leaving the prestigious radio station last month, Cipha has been receiving a huge amount of support as he told us in a recent interview "People have been offering me all types of stuff and saying I had a great run.

I will only accept the ROC chain from @badgalriri !!! Hhhhaaaaa.
