Just over a month after being moved from their longtime home at CUMULUS Classic Rock KKGO/DES MOINES to sister Talk KWQW (98.3 WOW-FM), LOU SIPOLT and HEATHER BURNSIDE have exited their new station.
CBS affiliate KCCI-TV reports that LOU and HEATHER, formerly two-thirds of the "LOU, ROUND GUY AND HEATHER" show with STEVE PILCHEN on KKGO for several years (SIPOLT for 27 years, BURNSIDE for 13), quit on FRIDAY, with SIPOLT saying, "It was a huge decision and I've been thinking about this for a couple of months now, every single day," and BURNSIDE adding that she "just decided for me, personally, and it was great that it worked out that LOU felt the same way, it's time that we just try other things or see what else is out there."
At WOW-FM, PD T.J. HART is anchoring a morning news block in LOU and HEATHER's place. They were replaced by PREMIERE NETWORKS' BOB AND TOM on KKGO at the beginning of the year.
