CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT Top 40 WZEE (Z104))/MADISON morning duo CONNIE & CURTIS, who recently saw their show being pulled from sister Top 40 WRNW (RADIO NOW)/MILWAUKEE (NET NEWS, 8/14), has been notified that their Z104 show will end AUGUST. 30th. As reported above, replacing them in both markets will be ELVIS DURAN's Premium Choice show.
However, it looks as if it was their decision to leave Z104 according to CCM+E/MILWAUKEE-MADISON VP/Market Mgr. JEFF TYLER, who told ALL ACCESS, "CONNIE and CURTIS have continued the tradition of successful morning shows on Z104. Their show continued to dominate the ratings and they were loved by their fans in MADISON. After the change was made in MILWAUKEE both CONNIE and partner CURTIS decided, and informed the company they did not want to continue to broadcast back to their fans on Z104 and told management they felt the time was right for them to move on.
"We worked to convince them to stay with Z104 but they said their minds were made up. We wish them only the best as they seek a new challenge and opportunity and they will forever be part of the history and legacy of Z104 in MADISON. We are excited to have a morning show like ELVIS DURAN available to take the next step and add to the long successful run of great morning shows on Z104. The station has been at the top of the ratings every year since 1981 and we have no intention of letting that streak end."
