ALL ACCESS has learned that MARLIN BROADCASTING Active Rock WCCC (THE ROCK)/HARTFORD PD/morning man MICHAEL PICOZZI is gone from the station, effective yesterday. MD MIKE KAROLYI will take over as PD.
There have been major changes in the station's music format the last several weeks and PICOZZI commented. "We finally agreed to disagree."
In regards to recent music changes, KAROLYI told ALL ACCESS "WCCC will continue to play currents, a decent amount of them. I'm not sure if "Active Rock" is an appropriate title any longer for WCCC but we will play ALICE IN CHAINS, SOUNDGARDEN, SHINEDOWN and THREE DAYS GRACE among others."
