I think Steve has been pissed at us ever since we wrote a story about a fight a Radio One event in Atlanta. So we were not included on his farewell list of press he sent his departure letter to yesterday…. there must be a support group for people like us (in deep thought…. OK done)
At any rate several people speculate Hegwood allegedly never really wanted the gig, as an entrepreneur myself, If that was the case, I can understand what it’s like to work for yourself then to work for others especially in a situation like that. I was calling some of my sources at the outlet but apparently R1 has let several people go in Atl in that cluster recently. Now I have to RE-ESTABLISH my sources? I have to complain to Cathy about this (laugh). I was wondering why Radio One has been so quiet this year… Others are saying Hegwood had differences with upper management. This is where I exit… Others are saying OTHER things…. here (sorry the people at Radio-Info.com must have pussied out as they shut down the link with the posts to the story.
