Jerome Ritchey, host of WTSP's (Tampa) Studio 10 says that the station has fired him. The station bills Studio 10 as the Bay Area's only truly live, local, mid-morning talk show, Monday through Friday at 9:00 a.m.
Ritchey posted the news on his Facebook Page just a short time ago:
"Friday July 25, 2014 was a milestone day in my broadcasting career, for the first time ever...I GOT FIRED. I was told immediately after Friday's show that a decision was made to take Studio 10 in a different direction. I do wish I had been offered the opportunity to say thanks to the incredible group of people that make Studio 10 possible, and that I have had the good fortune to work with over the last six years."
atchet doesn't know what he'll do next:
"As for me, my foot is on the accelerator as I search for my next adventure! I hope to see you all again someday. I'll keep you posted. You should also know that my least favorite word, is "goodbye" so with that in mind, I'll simply say, "Be seeing you.""
His bio remains on the station's website.... for now.
