Atom Smasher and Maria Todd of Atom and Maria in the Mornings were fired from Houston's 104 KRBE after their Friday shift, their keys were confiscated and they were escorted out of the station. Sounds like they didn't see this one coming and are likely working on their resumes (or the DJ-multimedia equivalent) as we type.
A new, yet to be announced morning show is coming in to replace them on July 24th according to news reports such as this one by Andrew Guy writing for the Houston Chronicle. Atom and Maria had only replaced Sam Malone (the DJ, not the Cheers character) a year ago, who went across town to Mix 96.5 KHMX (No, I'm not really sure if the stations are across town from each other, or across the street, or in nearby suburbs.) Mix 96.5 fired Roula & Ryan of the Roula & Ryan Show to bring in Sammy. I don't care what happened to Roula and Ryan, but if you really want to tell us, go ahead and post a comment below.
