Ted Bird Exits CHOM/Montreal
January 8, 2010 at 2:41 PM (PT)
Longtime ASTRAL MEDIA Classic Rock CHOM/MONTREAL morning personality TED BIRD has exited the station, reports the MONTREAL GAZETTE. Co-hosts CHANTAL DESJARDINS and "BAD PETE" MARIER continue as hosts of the show.
BIRD told the GAZETTE that his exit was over "philosophical and creative differences" with management and said that the station was targeting younger audiences; "I don't feel I fit in," BIRD said. "It's hard getting up at 3a to go to work when it's not fun anymore."
BIRD had been with CHOM for two separate stints and also worked at AC CJFM (then MIX 96) and Talk CJAD-A, partnered for most of that time with TERRY DIMONTE, with whom he hosted mornings from 1988-2007.
