CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT Active Rock KMOD/TULSA will end its long-running PHIL STONE and BRENT DOUGLAS morning radio on OCT. 12th. CLEAR CHANNEL management told NEWS ON 6, "It's fair to say that we could not reach a mutual agreement on a contract extension," and details for the new morning show will be announced soon.
In a tweet, DOUGLAS wrote, "Thanks for the almost 27 years you folks have let us have fun and get paid for it. Don't know what's next but I'll bet it won't compare. Out next week, then it's a weeklong blowout after over a 1/4 of a century. Few media people get the chance to say bye, so thanks KMOD."
"Sadness, disappointment and a huge burden to have to comment on the departure of TULSA's most iconic morning show -- ever," CCM+E/ULSA OM DON CHRISTI said in an e-mail to NEWS ON 6. "Awards too numerous to mention, their universally-known character ROY D. MERCER, skits like Greek Theatre and cutting-edge humor to generations of TULSA radio listeners cannot be measured in a simple statement or quote."
