CITADEL Classic Rock WMMQ/LANSING morning maven RICH MICHAELS was fired on WEDNESDAY, reports WLNS-TV/LANSING. MICHAELS had been on the LANSING airwaves at one station or another for more than 20 years.
"I think everybody's going through this. I'm not special," MICHAELS said. "I actually wish I could talk to people now in a way because I'm in it. It's 10 days to CHRISTMAS and I don't have a job. Something better will happen."
GM MATT HANLON said the company and MICHAELS "parted company" because the station made a decision "to move in a different direction." He also said co-host DEB HART would remain with the station.
