outta the oven!
I've been listening to this local conservative talk radio guy named Chris Stigall out of Philly since he moved here in 2010 from Kansas City, MO
He's quite entertaining and very politically savvy and had a good show I'd listen to on my morning drive, but today he was absent and the fill-in host was very noticeably not saying the usual "Filling in today on the Chris Stigall Show..." and I realized he had been purged from the radio station's (WPHT) website too.
It turns out they didn't renew his contract and he was out, POOF, just like that. No goodbyes, no anything. Just gone, an unperson. Down the memory hole.
I understand terrestrial radio is cutthroat and getting even more so with streaming and everyone moving away from that medium, but this really blows. It feels like I lost a friend today, a familiar voice I'd start my day with. I'd met the guy and he was really nice and approachable, I hope someone else picks him up quickly.

Keep checking on Google for him. I would venture a guess that he may show up on WHP 580 AM, a very conservative talk station out of Harrisburg. If they can find him a time slot.

Our local country station "POOF" dropped 3 successive great DJs off the station over the past decade. The two on now are "Boxer" and his sidekick "Lunchbox" with their asinine jokes & comments. Maybe the millennials like them but I sure don't. I make it a point to stay off the station during their morning show.

Our local station some years ago dropped a favorite morning talk show host, Chris Plante. Calls and letters were so overwhelming they brought him back, and now he's nationally syndicated as well.
I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.
Chris Plante and other talk show hosts got canned recently from an FM station in Tucson (104.1).
Station was sold to a Christian radio group.
