As first tipped by ALL ACCESS YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 12/14), THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE's PHIL ROSENTHAL confirms CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WKSC (KISS 103.5)/CHICAGO wakeup-meister KEVIN "DREX" BUCHAR is out. "BUCHAR was scrubbed from the KISS FM Web site on TUESDAY, as were sidekicks MEL 'MEL-T' TOVAR and ANGI TAYLOR. The FACEBOOK page for the female-oriented 'DREX IN THE MORNING' program vanished as well."
Rumors have MEL-T and TAYLOR coming back as part of a revamped morning show.
There's no word on how the "DREX in the Morning" channel on iHEARTRADIO will be affected.
DREX, along with MEL-T and TAYLOR had inked multi-year contract extensions in DECEMBER 2009 (NET NEWS 12/22/2009).
