Y102's Rex Longs For Lonestar
February 18, 2008 at 2:51 PM (PT)
Night jock REX ON THE RADIO departs CUMULUS Top 40 WHHY (Y102)/MONTGOMERY, AL to return to his native TEXAS. PD STEVE SMITH is now accepting packages to replace him. If you'd like to do nights on a heritage Top 40 station, e-mail him your mp3 and info today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Y102 staff was also busy responding to the area's severe weather over the weekend. A tornado struck the area SUNDAY afternoon (2/17) causing 29 injuries and serious damage to a number of stores (Wal-Mart, K-Mart, etc) and homes. At least 200 buildings and homes we're damaged or destroyed. Amazingly, there was no loss of life!
Y102's STEVE SMITH and REX ON THE RADIO went live with non-stop coverage for close to six hours on SUNDAY afternoon ... no music, no commercials, just non-stop live info from the scene and from the phones. Y102 is currently working with the AMERICAN RED CROSS to raise money for the victims. Listeners can donate, submit and view pictures of damage at www.y102montgomery.com.
