So what was the reason for taking him off the air?
Is he still at the station in a different position or has he been terminated?

In an episode of Seinfeld George Castanza was fired for having sex with the cleaning lady on his desk. His defense was that he has to plead ignorance, because if he knew that the company frowned upon this sort of thing he wouldn't have done it.

Now i'm not saying that Mr Johnson had sex with the cleaning lady on his desk nor am I comparing him to George Castanza, but....

Yeah--why was Rick Johnson fired and Michael Agnelo kept? And Frank Giardina was fired too--from The Drive on 1490AM. Why?

I listened to the drive almost daily and Carl Lee is the one that should go.

Out with the old in with the new. Radio stations as well as tv stations need to shake it up a bit every now and then and what better way than

out with the old and in with the new.

Think about it!

This is nothing new to the world of media it's just part of the game.

So frank was let go as well...I tell you what Carl Lee is almost unlistenable and if Frank is gone there's no reason to listen to that show. In the other case with Rick wow...u serious?

You might want to call WCHS and ask them! That's what I would do if I wanted to know.

Johnson is arrogant. He is boring on talk radio. But after 40 years he should not be fired.

Agree he is not the greatest, however he was alwasy there for them. When other employees were in news for DUI or beating up somebody, Rick was always the one they could go to and he would get the station through. Rick is a good in a two person talk show but not that great by himself. But a good guy, can't find a better guy and family man. Guess good guys aren't in demand.

They're replacing the show with a sports show Dave Weekley will host.
6 hours of sports. How exciting.

That is ridiculous. Whoever made that decision needs to be fired.
