“They said this was a format change”

Four former employees of classic-rock station KYYS-FM have filed an age-discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over their firings in January.

Former morning-show hosts Max Floyd, 67, and Tanna Guthrie, 51, and two other on-air personalities of the former KY-99.7 allege that Entercom Communications of Philadelphia pink-slipped them because of their age.

Entercom officials said the moves were made in order to relaunch the station as '99.7 The Boulevard.' Read more

Bring back Max and Tanna. The new station format sucks and lacks style. The new '99.7 Boulevard' is a dead end street. Max and Tanna were and are integral parts of Kansas City life for many in the area. I sincerely hope they win their age-discrimination suit against the station's ignorant owners.
