HEARST Active Rocker WIYY (98ROCK)/BALTIMORE has cut ties with afternooner STASH, after he was involved with a DUI car accident.
THE BALTIMORE SUN reports STASH, who's real name is STEPHEN G. SMITH, had "not been on the air since an automobile accident in HARFORD COUNTY SUNDAY that sent five people to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries and resulted in 48-year-old disc jockey being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, negligent driving and other traffic offenses, according to police."
"We have parted ways with STASH," PD DAVE HILL told THE SUN. "Both he and we have agreed. I can't say more than that because it is a personnel matter."
STASH told the paper, "They won't let me talk about it. I signed something that says no discussion ... In the blink of an eye, I ruined 24 years of great service and radio."
