Footy off the air again in Miami

Southeast Florida DJ Footy, who hosted News Radio 610 WIOD from 9 to noon daily for the past year or so after being canned by Y 100.7, is now available again.

Miami-area radio fans reported to me this morning that The Footy Show was replaced with piped in dribble from Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck's website lists him as being on 610 am already on weekday evenings from 9 to 11 pm, and on Sunday nights from 7 to 10. Those slots must have gone so well that the station simply decided to also carry him live in the mornings.

If anybody finds out more about what happened to Footy, please post it here.
