JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP Urban Oldies KGMG (MEGA 106.3)/TUCSON has cut ties with PD/morning host KEN CARR, middayer ROSEMARY WATSON and weekender DJ "DINO" DAN NESPOLI.
"I can only speculate that they are going to do something else with the station that doesn't involve the three of us," CARR told THE ARIZONA DAILY STAR. "I've just begun the process of finding another job. It would be wonderful to stay in TUCSON, so I wouldn't have to pay the cost of moving. I've been in the radio business for 24 years, and if there's anything I have expertise in, that's certainly it."
JOURNAL BROADCAST sent out this email to staff:
"As many know, the company has invested in intensive technical upgrades and market research to more clearly define a strategic operating direction for KGMG-FM. As a result of this directive, the KGMG-FM operating staff is being released effective today.
"KEN CARR, ROSEMARY WATSON, and "DINO" DAN NESPOLI have been great champions for this station over the past several years here in TUCSON, and we will greatly miss their contributions and talent for our team. We wish them the very best in their future endeavors."
