CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFYI-A/PHOENIX afternoon host and former Congressman J.D. HAYWORTH has exited the station, effective TODAY (1/22). HAYWORTH had been criticized for remaining on the air while considering a run in the Republican primary against incumbent JOHN MCCAIN for Senate from ARIZONA. Early morning host MIKE BROOMHEAD will move into HAYWORTH's 4-7p slot beginning MONDAY (1/25).
VP/Market Mgr. JEFF ENGLAND said, "We have enjoyed a wonderfully productive relationship with J.D. As he contemplates the next chapter in his long and distinguished career, we have agreed that his decision would best be made without the pressures of performing a daily radio show."
HAYWORTH added, "It has been a joy to spend weekday afternoons on KFYI. Now, another chapter begins. The call to public service remains, and again it may very well lead to pursuit of public office."
