Shocker! ALL ACCESS has learned that CCM+E Hot AC KMYI (STAR 94.1)/SAN DIEGO morning star AJ IN THE MORNING made his final appearance on the air this past FRIDAY (7/13). Co-host DELANA, who also handles middays, is staying aboard, as is DOROTHY, but ALL ACCESS has learned that co-host HULA has also left the show.
AJ, who spent the last three years at KMYI, also spent nearly 10 years in mornings at sister Top 40 KHTS (CHANNEL 93.3), told ALL ACCESS, "I am sincerely grateful for the opportunities that CLEAR CHANNEL/SAN DIEGO has provided me. I am excited to explore new options for my future!"
CCM+E/SAN DIEGO Pres./Market Mgr. DEBBIE WAGNER confirmed the changes in a memo to the staff: "I wanted to let you know that we have been negotiating for some time with AJ on his contract and we were not able to reach a workable agreement. As of today, AJ and HULA are no longer a part of the STAR team. We thank them both for their contributions to STAR and 933's success over the years and wish them well in their future endeavors.
"I am excited to announce that DELANA will continue to be a key part of the show (as she was when AJ and HULA joined her after the JEFF and JER departure) and that we look forward to announcing our new players soon. Until the new team members are announced, DELANA will be working with JIMMY STEELE, HAZE and guests to keep the STAR morning entertainment machine going."
