Russ Martin Talks (A Little) About Exiting 105.3/Dallas
January 9, 2009 at 5:11 AM (PT)
In his first interview since exiting CBS RADIO Talk KLLI (LIVE 105.3)/DALLAS, now Sports KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN), afternoon host RUSS MARTIN tells ABC affiliate WFAA-TV's JANET ST. JAMES that he was not fired and that "It's not something that you take personally. Stations change formats. Companies make decisions. You've got a bottom line, you have to worry about things like that. So no, I didn't take it personally."
MARTIN says that he has two years left to go on his contract and cannot discuss more about his departure, and cannot speak about his arrest for alleged domestic assault last JULY. He added that his RUSS MARTIN LISTENERS FOUNDATION charity for the families of fallen police officers is "intact. The foundation will be there. Any officer that falls in the line of duty. That's not going to stop, on the air or not, the support won't change."
