Doc Thompson has become a fixture in the Conservative Community in the Richmond and Central Virginia area. Thompson worked the 3 PM to 6 PM drive time radio slot on WRVA Radio in Richmond.
Thompson took a few days off to get married to Dayton Ohio reporter Yuna Lee. And towards the end of his Honeymoon, WLW Radio in Cincinnati, where Thompson has been living since October, 2010 informed him that he was being terminated.
Talent Shake-Up at WLW, Cincinnati; Eddie Fingers Returns. Today sees a revamped talk host lineup at Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s “Big One” WLW, Cincinnati highlighted by what Queen City media observers are calling the bizarre return of Eddie Fingers to the PM drive show 15 months after he was fired from the same show. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Kiesewetter, Fingers will rejoin co-host Tracy Jones for the 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm program. Jones’ partner since October of 2010 – former Cincinnati Reds outfielder Scott Sloan – moves to the 9:00 am to 12:00 noon slot.
That means late morning host Doc Thompson is the odd man out. Kiesewetter reports Thompson was fired last week while on his honeymoon with WHIO-TV, Dayton reporter Yuna Lee. Thompson still works for Clear Channel hosting the PM drive show at the company’s WRVA, Richmond.
And while some in Cincinnati speculated that they could still listen to Doc in Richmond on WRVA or via the Web, Doc’s Facebook post confirmed that he is no longer working at the Richmond station either:
I am no longer hosting my Richmond show.
In the world of radio broadcasting… sometimes these things just happen.
As I said earlier in the week it will all work out for the best and I am blessed.
To the people of The Commonwealth of Virginia… You are wonderful!
To the WRVA staff and listeners… Thank you
So, it would seem that there is an opening in the 3:00 – 6:00 PM slot. And it is unclear if the station will move Sean Hannity to the slot (live) instead of the delayed slot he now holds, or if some other show will take over the slot.
Stay tuned …
