So the big question on the street is “why did Drex get fired?” Was it a big scandal behind the scenes no-one is talking about? Was it his 5 year deal with a big fat $5 Million dollar payday? Did he have a blowout with his Program Director? Was he sleeping with a co-worker? Were his ratings so low, he was not worth the hefty price tag?
Not sure…but one thing is certain, he was only in the first year of his five-year contract. His time was not up on paper, but for some reason the “higher-ups” found it necessary to cut him before the roast had cooked. I have tried to find out the scoop and am working with an insider, to spill the beans!
This has many interested in where radio is really going, are popular on-air jocks a thing of the past? Will stations continue to cut costs until they have nothing left but a microphone, pre-recorded automated voice and CD’s played continuously with your favorite songs. Or just pay it all to Ryan Seacrest and hope he carries the station on his own. The three-year $60 million contract he signed, should be the answer to all their questions. Right?
While this is something only they can answer, one thing is for sure, many seem to have a strong opinion and feel cutting Drex was a BIG MISTAKE. But I am certain, Management could care less, and will still be enjoying their holiday dinner with steak & lobster, or on a private resort soaking in the sun.
