Hunter Herring didnâ„¢t get to say goodbye.
The afternoon drive time DJ for WOMG-FM Oldies 103.1 was laid off recently after 19 years at the station. Herring, whoâ„¢s been in broadcasting in the Carolinas for 40 years, just wanted to thank his listeners one last time.
Å“I wouldâ„¢ve liked to have left on better circumstances, he said. Å“As far as I know, itâ„¢s the economy. Theyâ„¢re just trying to cut back. They didnâ„¢t explain that much.
Herring is the second high-profile DJ let go by Citadel Broadcasting, which owns five stations in the Columbia market, including WTCB-FM, WNKT-FM, WLXC-FM and WISW-AM. He joins Tre Tailor, the midday host at WLXC whose departure was announced this week.
