STEVE GILL has exited CUMULUS Talk WWTN (SUPER TALK 99.7 WTN)/NASHVILLE after the breakdown of renewal negotiations. The TENNESSEAN reports that GILL left FRIDAY (6/30) after his morning show and that the parties did agree to reduce his noncompete from six to three months and to allow him to be on the air on SATURDAYS by AUGUST 1.
GM STEVE DICKERT issued a statement saying that GILL "has been an important part of the success enjoyed by WTN over the last 6 years and we certainly wish him continued success as he pursues his broadcast opportunities across the State of TENNESSEE.” GILL's statement said that “WTN has long been a powerful voice in MIDDLE TENNESSEE and I expect that they will successfully continue that track record for many years to come."
