The MYRTLE BEACH SUN TIMES is reporting that a listener protest disputing the firing of CUMULUS Country WYAK (K-COUNTRY)/MYRTLE BEACH PD/afternoon personality RICK ROBERTS is gathering steam. The group is shooting for 150,000 signatures on petitions that they are hoping to present to CUMULUS. They've also placed the petitions in local DUNKIN' DONUTS shops and SCOTCHMAN CONVENIENCE STORES in the MYRTLE BEACH area.
"I've definitely turned my station," said former WYAK listener JANICE HANSEN. "I won't turn it back on K-COUNTRY. I don't even have my radio on now. I haven't found a station that I liked. I would like to see them offer his job back. He was the radio station. I think he needs a tremendous apology."
ROBERTS has been replaced by new PD JOEY DEE. To read the entire story click here.
