BUCKLEY Sports KIDD-A (630 ESPN)/MONTEREY, CA has dropped the Adult Standards "WAY BACK NOW" weekend show hosted by 61-year radio host ED DICKINSON, reports the MONTEREY HERALD. DICKINSON, 85, had been with KIDD for the last 17 years, had previously worked there in the 1960's, and also worked at KOCN and KNRY-A.
"A year ago we became an all-Sports station, and our ownership has been wanting to go to an all-Sports format," BUCKLEY EVP KATHY BAKER told the HERALD. "We accommodated ED as long as we possible could, but it wasn't economically feasible for a sports station." "We love ED, and we hope another station will pick up his show," she added. "We plan to make efforts to help him find a spot somewhere." DICKINSON said he does not plan to retire and is looking for other on-air opportunities.
