CBS RADIO Smooth Jazz KTWV (THE WAVE)/LOS ANGELES has parted ways with longtime afternooner DON BURNS. GARY LYCAN in THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER reports BURNS requested that MONDAY (5/17) be the final day to record his show.
BURNS has been voicetracking from a studio in his home for months, but current management wanted him to go live and local in afternoon drive.
"I had an extended conversation with DON, and we expressed our mutual respect for one another. It was very heartfelt," said KTWV PF JHANI KAYE. "I left the door open for him to return in the future. If he is willing to be live and local, we’re willing to talk."
