RADIO ONE Top 40 WNOW (RADIO NOW 100.9)/INDIANAPOLIS wakeup star KYLE SMELSER of the KYLE & RACHEL show posted to his FACEBOOK page that his contract had not been renewed -- and he and and his co-host were exiting the station.
He wrote, "Family, friends and listeners of RADIO NOW 100.9, today was my last day with the station. Simply put, we were not renewed for another year and they want to go a different direction. I want to give you a heartfelt thank you for letting me be able to do something I love in the city I love for nearly six years! Beyond blessed. I've gotten the chance to work with and meet some incredibly talented people but the best part of my job was talking to YOU every day. You've made me laugh, cry and experience so many emotions. Sincerely appreciate you sharing your life with us. On a side note, I drank a beer in the shower this afternoon before I went in to receive the news. The whole time I was being told they were moving in a direction my baby bladder was thinking, 'I have to pee really bad.' Fortunately, the convo only lasted five minutes! The good news is that I don't have to wake up at 4a every day and I can stay up past my bed time now. The bad news is that you don't get to hear a great wrong number we had on tap tomorrow :) Lastly, I just hope that when you tuned in I gave you as much joy, laughs and love as you made me feel when you called in. I will forever be grateful to the city that will always be MY HOME, INDY. Love and God Bless. Off to make breakfast for dinner and I will change my last name on FB now.????#ThankYouIndy ?#?LoveYa? ?#?MeanIt?"
