WAY-FM MEDIA GROUP announced the departure of morning host BRANT HANSEN from "MORNINGS WITH BRANT." HANSEN has been with WAY-FM for eight years and his last day will be JUNE 30th.
HANSEN told DOUG HANNAH via "THE CHRISTIAN RADIO SHOW WITH DOUG HANNAH" that he will be taking on afternoons for EMF BROADCASTING's AIR 1 RADIO NETWORK. The interview between HANNAH and HANSEN can be heard here.
In a press release from WAY-FM, HANSEN said, "I'm excited and sad at the same time. Excited about a new chapter, but sad because I truly love WAY-FM and the leadership of WAY-FM: from my local GM, JIM MARSHALL, to our Network PD and GM, JEFF CONNELL and FARON DICE, and for BOB AUGSBURG. Our separation doesn't qualify as merely 'amicable.' It's more than that. I'm just very, very thankful for WAY-FM and the people I've gotten to work alongside."
"We have been honored to have BRANT on our team and we’re sorry to see him go. He is a gifted communicator who has engaged our listeners in conversations about Jesus each morning. I have been personally impacted by his on-air ministry," said WAY-FM Network GM FARON DICE.
"BRANT has developed an uncommon bond with our listeners, and I've had a front row seat as he's grown in his role from a single market personality to a national-level talent. Personally and professionally, I wish him great success as he begins a new chapter," said WAY-FM Regional Manager JIM MARSHALL.
"MORNINGS WITH BRANT" will continue on the air for the next few months. There is no announcement yet about a replacement.
