Russ Johnson out at KVOR
Hat tip to Mike: Russ Johnson appears to be gone from KVOR (740 AM). The brash talker lasted less than a year at the news-talk station.
A couple months after Johnson started, I got a call from a group that was trying to get him fired. Not surprising, since he went out of his way to rub people the wrong way. Still, I haven't heard that he did anything especially egregious last week. Maybe it was just ratings? KRDO has been climbing and has won the last two books in mornings 25-54.
I wonder if they'll stick with an afternoon talk show or go with something newsier.
