August 18, 2010 at 8:58 AM (PT)
PORTLAND RADIO GROUP Hot AC WMGX (THE COAST 93.1)/PORTLAND, ME morning fixture TIM WRIGHT is out after 15 years in the market.
THE PRESS HERALD reports, "WRIGHT, 48, did not want to discuss details of his departure. But he did say his time at the station had been 'a fun 15 years' and he enjoyed working with his longtime co-host, EVA MATTESON."
"I cannot say enough good things about EVA. She's been my best partner and I wish her the best of everything," said WRIGHT. "I'm looking forward to getting some sleep, to not hearing the music of JOHN MAYER as much, and not having to constantly discuss the legal problems of LINDSAY LOHAN."
GM CARY PAHIGIAN told the paper that "the WMGX morning show will continue, and that MATTESON will stay on. He said the station will announce a replacement for WRIGHT at a later date."
