KWHN Drops Local Morning Show
July 20, 2010 at 7:11 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KWHN-A/FORT SMITH has dropped the station's long-running "ARKLAHOMA AM" morning show and replaced it with TALK RADIO NETWORK's "AMERICA'S MORNING NEWS."
The CITY WIRE reports that host BRIAN HARRIS has exited the station; his co-host GARY ELMORE died JUNE 7th.
A statement from the station quoted by the website said, "It has become quite clear to us that ARKLAHOMA AM cannot be the program it was without it's heart and soul, GARY ELMORE. While we have searched for someone local to handle GARY's on-air responsibilities since his passing, we feel that after nearly 20 years, it just wouldn't be the same."
