Beth Davis from the Dwyer and Michaels show was let go by Cumulus Media in December 2013, shortly before Townsquare Media acquired the radio stations.
Red Hot Brian Scott and Cody Tucker were dismissed by Townsquare Media in the Spring of 2014.
Now, it appears Dave and Darren from Rock 104.9 will be leaving the Quad City airwaves. The Dave and Darren Facebook page posted this message today, July 8:
Townsquare is excited about changes they plan to make. Those changes will not include me or Darren. I'm going to attack this from a place of gratitude. For more than 20 years, I got to do my dream career. Rather than be upset that it's over, I choose to be happy it happened. You helped make that happen. Thank you for listening!
Additionally, RadioInsight.com is reporting that not only will Quad City listeners lose a great morning show, they will also lose a great rock station when Rock 104.9 becomes New Country The Hawk 104.9. Here is a link to The Hawk's website (under construction)
Doesn't Townsquare Media know that attempts to topple WLLR have already been made? Surely they know about KBOB and The River, and if they don't then they didn't do their homework very well.
Good luck to Dave and Darren, and Quad City radio listeners are hoping you can find a new home somewhere on our local airwaves.
