LONG NINE, INC. Talk WMAY-A/SPRINGFIELD, IL 9a-noon host KIRK FARAH has exited the station after five years, according to the STATE JOURNAL-REGISTER. RAY LYTLE is handling the shift for now.
FARAH told the paper that he would be leaving radio, saying, "I’ve done it off and on for 25 years in different markets and it’s a young man’s game anymore ... I’m not going to speak disparagingly of the company -- they’ve been pretty good to me over the last five years. It’s just kind of a tough business and they’re always looking for fresh voices and a fresh perspective."
