ATLANTIC BROADCASTING Oldies WTKU/ATLANTIC CITY morning show co-hosts DAVID ALLEN PRATT and JERRY BEEBE were dismissed via e-mail on TUESDAY (8/16), reports the pair.
PRATT and BEEBE say they were terminated last MARCH from the payroll by THE ATLANTIC BROADCASTING GROUP, but agreed to remain as sub-contractors making $7,500 per year.
They recently decided they could not continue on those terms and gave two weeks notice on TUESDAY. Then they report they got the e-mail saying TUESDAY's show was their last. "They kept telling us to be patient," said BEEBE, "and they would eventually work things out. But they never did."
