more changes at WFPK

WPFK, 91.9 FM weeknight DJ Nick James has been let go, for reasons that are unknown to LEO at this time. The 20-something James was brought in a few years ago to try to appeal to younger listeners. The recent appointment of the similarly youthful Kyle Meredith as morning DJ and Music Director would indicate that James was possibly not as successful as bringing in those listeners. A search is on now for James’ replacement, and Program Director Stacey Owen tells me that she hopes to find one “before the end of July.” She added, “I’m open to whoever is the right person for the job, local or outside the community.” The leading candidate would seem to be Sean Cannon, who is currently “filling in” for the departed James.
