KSSK-AM radio lays off veteran Dick Wainwright - Business

Full story: Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Longtime KSSK-AM 590 radio personality Dick Wainwright, heard on the station for 30 years, lost his job yesterday as did five others in the Texas-based company's latest round of cost-cutting. It was the second round this year and left 590 people, or 3 percent of its work force, unemployed.

The moves don't surprise me. I still can't believe the the complete destruction of KPOI. The ratings show just how stupid management's been there!

Erika, Thanks for the sad news on the state of C.C. and radio in general in the islands. I think Dick Wainwright has a great idea. I would be back in Honolulu in a heartbeat if we could pull together enough of the right investors willing to let us do what we know is right and profitable (and they just sit back and listen to the magic on the radio and count the cash). I know of many Hawaii radio stars who would jump at the chance to recreate a bit of the past here in the 21st. Century in exchange for a small piece of the pie. Any takers can call me. Erika has my number!

Never really listened to KSUCK. Mainly because it seems to be so popular here in the Islands...and therefore by logic is c-r-a-p.
