Will the last person leaving Springs radio please turn off the mic?

The latest is Uncle Steve Etheridge, program director and morning host at Salem Christian music station KBIQ (102.7 FM). He's headed to a new Clear Channel Christian adult contemporary station in Austin, Texas.

Steve's been in local radio 16 years, including six years at KBIQ and seven before that at KKCS, where he was also part of the morning team.

His co-host, Chris Kelly, will carry on solo for now.

Actually, where he's headed is sort of an interesting story, too. It's KPEZ and it will be radio giant Clear Channel's first Christian A/C station. If the format works in Austin, CC may try it other places. Steve will be doing afternoons and also serve as music director/assistant PD.

Friday's his last day.

Bummer...he is a very jovial morning personality to listen to (even when I'm waking up grumpy)

Bob & Tom is ok, we need to get rid of Jim Arthur at KVOR, he is single-handedly dragging that station down to hell.

Bob & Tom have done well since they were cleared in this market starting on KMOM (now KIBT) and then KKFM realized that this duo from Indianapolis is worth having.

Jim Arthur is KVOR and until this KRDO-AM-FM station proves its worth he is not going anywere

Bob and Tom are about as relevant as George Bruns and Gracie Allen...

Is it Henry Tippie that ran him out? I heard he is very difficult to work for...
