>BIG DRAMA on The Calgary Radio Market.
I’m getting a ton of messages that Freeway Frank from The Freeway and Meg Morning has been let go!
The details are rough but apparently everyone is in shock.
The news can’t be that surprising, Energy 101.5 has struggled in the ratings since they debuted two years ago. So it was only a matter of time until things changed.
I’ve had lots of opportunities to work with Frank and he is one of the nicest most supportive guys out there. He has been a HUGE supporter of Mike’s Bloggity Blog and I have no doubt in my mind that he is one of the reasons that this blog is so successful. He’ll be missed by me and everyone that listens to Energy.
And yes, it is too soon to start consider the Meg and Mike Morning Show!
UPDATE #1: Yikes. All mention of Frank has been taken off Energy 101.5’s website.
UPDATE #2: I got ahold of the program director and got the standard : “we don’t comment on internal issues.” Lame.
UPDATE #3: Freeway Frank has just updated his facebook status to read: “now knows the feeling. 24 hours ago I was relieved of my morning duties at Energy 101-5 I can be reached at email@example.com. Thanks to everyone who made my 2.5 years at Energy some of the best years of my life! Grazie and See you Soon!”
