Mancow Gone At KAZR/Des Moines

SAGA Active Rock KAZR (LAZER 103.3)/DES MOINES has taken MANCOW's morning show off the air. "We are terminating his agreement," said DES MOINES RADIO GROUP GM BILL WELLS. "His last day was FRIDAY. When we renewed the contract we gave ourselves a 30-day out, so I'll have to pay him for another 30 days."
WELLS cited a decline in the consistency and quality of MANCOW's show since he lost his home base last summer at WKQX (Q101)/CHICAGO and, with it, some key personnel. "The show really changed," WELLS said. "He thought everybody was gonna go with him."
A written statement from LAZER said, "Many listeners wanted something different in the morning. Well, we’ve listened. LAZER 103.3 has taken MANCOW off the air. This SPRING, LAZER is going to have a new morning show, one we are excited about. More details are coming soon."
