Mike Stoudt Exits Evenings At WFSH
February 3, 2014 at 8:34 AM (PT)
MIKE STOUDT has been let go after 13 years manning the evening shift at SALEM COMMUNICATIONS Contemporary Christian WFSH (104.7 THE FISH)/ATLANTA. He started on weekends when THE FISH signed on in ATLANTA, but was moved to evenings shortly after the debut, and has been there ever since.
MIKE explains, "Well, after 13 years with THE FISH, I've been let go from being the evening on-air personality. They've decided to go "in a different direction." I wish them well in their decision. My only regret is that I wasn't allowed one more night to say goodbye to you who helped make my time on-air enjoyable. Thank you for the phone calls, the FACEBOOK messages, the e-mails … thank you for pouring your heart during those times when your life was in shambles and you didn't have anyone else to talk to except some "random DJ." Thank you for the laughs!"
STOUDT continues, "Thank you for allowing your kids to call up and for calling in for my Fish Family Status Updates -- I loved hearing how you were living your life while listening to THE FISH … especaially when all I could see were computer screens and a microphone … hoping that the songs or any words that I could mutter were at least some sort of encouragement to you in your worst moment … or perhaps a funny bit to give you a chuckle. So it's with a heartfelt thank you that I (quietly) 'sign off'. You've given me the best gifts anyone can ask for -- your friendship and your time. I wish you the best and want to remind you, above all else: GOD loves you."
MIKE tells ALL ACCESS that he will be busy continuing his voicover and TV work (RECKLESS & KILL THE MESSENGER), and is open to the next great radio opportunity. Reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
