GREATER MEDIA Classic Rock WMGK/PHILADELPHIA parts ways with longtime PHILLY Progressive Radio icon MICHAEL TEARSON, who has been with the station since 2002. He had most recently been hosting a weekend morning show, "SATURDAY Morning '60s."
PHILLY.COM notes he is "one of PHILLY's true pioneers of Progressive Rock radio. TEARSON broke into the biz with his late 1960s years at a then student-run, all-volunteer WXPN, then moved to WDAS, for many moons to WMMR and later back, briefly to a now professionally steered 'XPN."
TEARSON will continue to be heard though, as he hosts several shows on SIRIUSXM satellite radio. He's a regular on THE BLUES CHANNEL and fills in on CLASSIC VINYL.
