KY Slips Away

Back to Rockville, the music blog of the Kansas City Star, reports today that KY is no longer.

All staff allegedly fired, and format allegedly flipped. And, as usual, no notice given to you - the fans who tuned in this morning expecting to hear familiar voices live on the air. It probably makes you feel worse that there was also no notice given to the radio personalities, AKA, the people who publicly lost their jobs.

Sorry, I'm just the messenger. As usual, the offending radio station and its website are silent on the subject. A check of 99.7 KY's site, www.kyys.com, at the time of this posting showed all the regular DJs listed as if nothing was happening.

Letters Like This

are the reason I run DJ Moves:

Hello,

I would like to report a missing DJ. Mitch Kelly was a DJ on the morning show on KWNR 95.5 FM in Las Vegas, NV for about 10 years. A little over a year ago they brought back a DJ to host with Mitch and more recently brought on a younger female to produce the morning show. It appears they pushed Mitch out the door. I have listened every morning for as long as I can remember and all of a sudden he’s gone without warning or mention. Needless to say I don’t listen to KWNR anymore and I can’t stand the other Country station in town.


Just wondering where he is.


Thanks,

Kanesha


Kanesha, it looks like Mitch was fired in early December. And from what I've been seeing around the Internet, you weren't the only one who was caught off guard. The station apparantly didn't miss a beat in going on without him and acting as if he wasn't there.

Basically, it looks like Mitch didn't leave Las Vegas on his own terms like Nick Cage.
