In early October news dropped that Bobby Jack Murphy was no longer with WAMZ (a Clear Channel station) in Louisville. Dozens of readers have commented and emailed to share their stories.
But since then, WAMZ has been on the hunt for a replacement and the station has hired Chris Randolph from WMTX in Tampa. He’ll join Mel on the 5:00 to 10:00 A.M. wake-up shift. Randolph is a Shelbyville native and may be familiar to metro area radio listeners from his days on WDJZ, 98.9 KISS-FM and WQMF.
WAMZ Program Director Coyote Calhoun had this to say: “We are very excited to add this experienced market veteran to the WAMZ morning show. Chris has enjoyed much success in Louisville. We feel very fortunate to have found someone who knows the market so well and loves its people.”
And in Randolph’s own words, “The chance to work with Coyote Calhoun is a once-in-lifetime opportunity. He is one of the very reasons I’m in the business. I can’t wait to get started at one of the most highly-rated, legendary Country stations in America.” It looks like Randolph is excited to be back in town.
Will listeners welcome him with open arms?
