CUMULUS Talk WTMA-A/CHARLESTON, SC morning host RICHARD TODD has exited the station after eight years on the station, reports ABC affiliate WCIV-TV.
TODD announced on his show that the exit was precipitated by his wife's passing on JANUARY 3rd, after which he returned to the show in FEBRUARY. "This would not be happening if my wife had not passed away from cancer," he said. "It's time for me to move on and turn the page."
A replacement has not been announced. The station is one of the affiliates that will pick up MIKE HUCKABEE's new syndicated show next MONDAY (4/9) in the time slot presently filled by an hour of TODD's former "THE MORNING BUZZ" and two hours of DIAL GLOBAL's NEAL BOORTZ.
