Kenny Walker, of "Kenny and Footy In The Morning," was fired from Y 100.7 in Miami today, according to a report in the Miami Herald.
Kenny joined the station 10 years ago, and in 2001 was paired with "Footy" for a morning show.
Why was his contract not renewed? The Miami Herald reports that "ratings slipped badly last fall," although they don't specify whether they mean the Morning Show's ratings, or those of the entire station.
Meanwhile, South Florida's NBC 6 reported that "Kenny and Footy In The Morning has become the No. 1 morning show for its demographic in South Florida."
Which should we believe? My guess is the former, since it's usually all about ratings, right? Both news sources also stated: "The station is also seeking a new program director and plans to reshuffle its personality lineup." Get your resumes ready, boys.
The station's "morning show" web page was not working when I went to the site to see if they mentioned the shakeup, but luckily, their thong of the day feature is still working! (WARNING, I SAID "THONGS")
