B98.5/Atlanta Ends Morning Show As Vikki Locke Departs
June 12, 2013 at 3:17 PM (PT)
COX MEDIA GROUP AC WSB (B98.5 )/ATLANTA morning show host VIKKI LOCKE will leave the station to spend more time with her family and to pursue a new career opportunity of starting her own media coaching company. Subsequently, B98.5’s VIKKI and KELLY show will be canceled, as co-host KELLY STEVENS will also be leaving.
"I thank ATLANTA for making a Buckeye feel like a Southerner for the last 25 years," LOCKE said. "After years of waking up at 3a, I’m excited about starting this new chapter."
"Weekday mornings won’t be the same without VIKKI’s voice," B98.5 PD CHRIS EAGAN said. "We thank her for her invaluable contributions to our station and wish her all the best with her new endeavors."
The search will begin for a new full-time morning show host as soon as possible.
