Rice Exits WCCO

CBS RADIO Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS midday host JACK RICE is exiting the station after five years. RICE tells the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE that the decision was mutual and that a FACEBOOK message from early JANUARY that indicated that he had been laid off was not correct.
RICE has been hosting "TOP STORY WITH JACK RICE" 6-7p weekdays on CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KOGO-A/SAN DIEGO, where he has also filled in for morning man CHIP FRANKLIN. WCCO will conduct a national search for a replacement.
