CK out at Cat Country
Turns out, you can spell "cat" without a C. Or, I guess, a K.
Longtime local DJ Chris "CK" Knight was given the heave-ho this morning from Citadel Broadcasting's KATC (95.1 FM), after a year with the country station. CK came over from a long and very successful stint at KKMG (98.9 FM), Citadel's Top 40 station, but couldn't push Cat Country past its arch-rival KCCY (96.9 FM).
"I thought the morning show, I thought we were making progress," CK said. "It was a different approach than what I was used to on Magic, but I was trying to make an adjustment. We weren’t completely in the toilet."
Radio's one of those fields where you're always between firings, but CK hadn't gotten canned since 1992 in St. Louis, not that he didn't come close a few times on Magic. His former Cat Country co-host Alisha and midday guy Cutter will helm the show for now.
