Whoopi Exits Radio

WHOOPI GOLDBERG ended her syndicated morning show career with some mis-fired fireworks. Sources tell ALL ACCESS that her final show FRIDAY morning (4/11) basically consisted of a three-hour rant about how much she hated doing radio. It was almost enough to make some station execs pull the plug early.
Nevertheless, expect to see the stations that carried her show announce morning replacements quickly.
It has already started at CLEAR CHANNEL Rhythmic AC WKSL (KISS)/RALEIGH, where PD/afternoons DAVE KENT segues to wakeups, effective TODAY. The move creates a choice opening in afternoons.
