CBS RADIO AAA WZGC (92.9 DAVE FM)/ATLANTA morning show co-host STEVE BARNES of BARNES & FIRFER and PM driver ERIC both exit as DAVE FM instills new benchmarks, "WHERE THE MUSIC MATTERS."
Meanwhile, the morning show is now "DAVE FM MUSIC MORNINGS" with FIRFER doing news headlines. Fulltime swing/overnighter SULLY moves up to PM drive.
WZGC Dir./Programming MICHELLE ENGEL told ALL ACCESS, "BARNES' skillset is high in a personality driven form. As we move forward and call for a music-driven show, he really decided he wanted to move in a different direction. BARNES has been utterly important to the launch of this radio station, and we are sad that he won't be here moving forward."
ENGEL added, "BARNES and ERIC have been here for two years as of today and we are moving forward with music-focused shows. There was no animosity whatsoever. It's all about the slogan change and getting ready for the FALL BOOK."
