February 6, 2012 at 3:51 AM (PT)
A few days after being dropped from middays by CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI (NET NEWS 1/30), DOC THOMPSON has also been let go by sister Talk WRVA-A/RICHMOND, where he had been doing afternoons. THOMPSON, who was on his honeymoon when he got the WLW news, had hosted afternoons at WRVA since 2007, when he replaced MAC WATSON, who moved to BONNEVILLE Talk KTAR-F/PHOENIX; he added an evening shift at WLW in SEPTEMBER 2010 and moved to middays a month later.
On his FACEBOOK page, THOMPSON announced, "I am no longer hosting my RICHMOND show. In the world of radio broadcasting ... sometimes these things just happen. As I said earlier in the week it will all work out for the best and I am blessed. To the people of The Commonwealth of VIRGINIA ... You are wonderful! To the WRVA staff and listeners ... Thank you!"
