CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Rhythmic WKTU/NEW YORK APD MIKE OPELKA has exited after 10 years at the station. He was most recently producer for WAKE UP WITH WHOOPI.
Said MIKE, "For the short term, I am attending to a long-neglected 'honey do' list, working on my short game and sorting through a photo file of amazing memories from RUPAUL and MICHELLE VISAGE circa 1997, the various hosts who worked with GOUMBA JOHNNY, all the way to WHOOPI & CUBBY. Should anyone need to reach me, my preferred e-mail will remain firstname.lastname@example.org."
