GREATER MEDIA's Classic Rock WCSX/DETROIT's longtime host of “Motor City Blues Project” host MARK PASMAN has exited as the station discontinues the show.
THE DETROIT NEWS reports, "PASMAN says he was informed of the move in a 'three-minute' phone call. He asked to do one last show in order to thank musicians and listeners, but was turned down."
“After a quarter-century of being a model employee, it’s kind of crazy,” PASMAN told the paper. “Asking to say goodbye was not only appropriate, it would have been an amazing show! B.B. KING would be calling in, I’d have the HOWLIN’ DIABLOS in the studio. I’m disappointed I didn’t get to thank all these people. I’ve just been sitting here in tears over all the love I’ve been getting over the last few days.”
GREATER MEDIA issued a statement, writing “The station decided to go in a different direction on the weekends. We are very grateful for the contributions MARK PASMAN has made over the years to WCSX.”
