If you live in Iowa City, and you listen to a radio program hosted by a 65 year old man on an AM station, you probably don't expect to hear much excitement. However, that wasn't the case if you tuned in this past Friday morning to KXIC, 800 AM in Iowa City.
At 7:30 a.m. yesterday, Roy Justis announced to listeners that he was leaving the station after thirty-seven (yes, 37 years).
According to Rachel Gallegos of the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Justis had only received one raise in the last 6 years, and it was only friggin' 3%. (I added the "friggin" part).
