It's unclear what exactly is happening at KPOJ, but local morning host Carl Wolfson just announced - via Facebook - that he's leaving the station.
To my friends -- Clear Channel informed me this morning that they are moving in a new direction with KPOJ, beginning on Monday. I appreciate the opportunity they gave me for six years to be a voice for progressive causes in our state and nation. I will miss all of my fun friends at work (my excellent producer Paul, remains employed!). I love all of you, my loyal listeners. It has been my honor to give a platform to all of the outstanding groups, volunteers, elected officials and good people who make Oregon so special.
Whether this means the cancellation of a local program, a new host (or hosts) for the local show, or if KPOJ is shifting away from progressive talk altogether, I don't know.
I do know that Carl's voice is one that will be missed. He had just the right mix of news and humor for a morning show.
UPDATE: Willamette Week reports that KPOJ is going all-sports.
UPDATE: It's confirmed. 620 KPOJ is now FOX Sports 620
More details to follow when I have 'em.
