Just to be clear I really, really had nothing to do with this…
Brian Pierce and Kellie Michaels, morning-show personalities at WNNS-FM 98.7, have "separated from their employment" with the station and its parent company, Mid-West Family Broadcasting.I sent no bad karma or nothin'. I certainly would never wish anyone to lose their job. So best of luck to both of them in the future. They’re radio veterans and certainly know this stuff happens all the time, and it probably has happened to them in the past. That’s one of the many reasons I got out of that business.
Kevan Kavanaugh, general manager of Mid-West, confirmed that the pair had left today and would no longer be on the air.
In addition to her DJ duties, Michaels was Mid-West's operations manager and the program director at WNNS. The Web site for WNNS, http://www.wnns.com/, has removed any links to Pierce and Michaels' personal pages.
Update: The SJ-R story isn't clear who initiated the separation but it has all the signs of them being fired rather than quitting. But who knows. Maybe they left seeking a market with bloggers that are less impolite.
