iHEARTMEDIA Classic Rock KRFX (103.5 THE FOX)/DENVER morning co-host MICHAEL FLOORWAX is leaving the syndicated LEWIS & FLOORWAX show for medical reasons. Co-host RICK LEWIS read a statement from FLOORWAX on-air, which was also posted on the station's website.
FLOORWAX wrote he had been dealing "certain medical issues" for a long while -- in fact, he had been off the show for the last 10 months -- and his condition requires him to devote all his energies "on my health and well being." He also denied rumors that he had fallen off the wagon (“I have been clean and sober for 30 years and am proud of that”) and that his employer, iHEARTMEDIA, fired him.
There has been no word on how or if the show will be re-branded or altered..
