Tirrell Plans Return To Des Moines Airwaves

Former CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KXNO-A/DES MOINES host MARTY TIRRELL lands on crosstown CITADEL Sports KBGG-A (AM 1700 THE CHAMP) for 4-6p weekdays beginning JUNE 1st.
The DES MOINES REGISTER reports that TIRRELL, who was fired by KXNO for a profane tirade on MARCH 20 that accidentally made it to the air, will not be employed by CITADEL but is instead buying the time through advertisers, and will air the show from the dealership of advertiser TOYOTA OF DES MOINES. TIRRELL told the paper that a noncompete in his CLEAR CHANNEL contract is not enforceable, but CLEAR CHANNEL VP/Market Manager JOEL MCCREA would not comment.
