: : : Send ya packages. Christmas presents all around! 1 to 1.5 years of $27.5/yr could be yours!:
: : Surprising. Has Kiss ever fired a night jock before? This could be a first. Doesn't sound like a warm, well-wishing goodbye from Brian Kelly. What happened? Ratings?? Haze is a great talent, seems like he's had a string of bad luck.
: It didn't say. It sounded like he left on his own, because when he was hired BK loved him. And he definitely is the most large market experienced night jock to enter that building short of Zannie K who left after a month. But you're right-I can't think of a night jock that was ever let go. They've all left on their own. Kiss is a leading station but the low pay and slow technical upgrades to equipment make many dread their time there after awhile.
Actually, in the 8 years I've been here every one of the night jocks left to take bigger jobs, not because they were unhappy. Brett went to do mornings in Wichita (then off to Portland), B-Dub went to Q102 in Cincy, and Pat Clark went to do mornings in Seattle. I don't think it's a "low pay" type of issue. In fact, I think the pay is probably pretty good.
