RADIO D.J. QUITS ON THE AIR.......SLAMS MANAGEMENT
For those of us in radio, I can tell you from experience, many of my colleagues would like to quit like this. Unfortunately, radio stations are now owned by three or four companies and if you burn bridges with one station in one company, you are screwed company wide.
Gregg Stepp at ROCK 105 in Jacksonville, Florida found out he was being replaced by the legendary shock jock, The Greaseman in his afternoon drive slot. Instead of waiting to be fired on Friday, Stepp decided to step up to the mic and announce his own demise. Not only that, he dove into an angry anti-management rant and quit on the air, saying he was giving his "15 seconds notice."
After ranting, he walked away from the microphone. In the background, you can hear the door slam shut and about 20 seconds later, someone walks in and starts playing a song.
