Sad to hear about Lovell, but Morgan White Jr. Has been hosting shows on WBZ for some time now and he is African-American.

He was a force in the black community with a long track record, and whether or not some critics felt he was effective as a talk show host, his presence on the air was an important symbol. At the risk of opening a can of worms, WBZ Radio historically had only white male talk show hosts (not that there's anything wrong with being white and male), so I think a lot of members of the minority community felt it was important for Lovell to continue having a show because he presented a different perspective.
