Drex In the Morning

So real estate has had a rough patch, but appears to be improving.  However, it now seems that the radio industry is catching up.  With more DJ’s getting released than short sales coming on the market, it appears a new casualty “allegedly” took place today, with the release of Drex in the Morning.  Drex had been on Kiss 103.5 for several years (never really counted), and was highly paid and supposedly highly rated.  Truly not sure what happened, but I’ve got to say, I was far more disappointed with the firing of Eddie & Jobo on B96.

Not to be completely rude, but I never really saw what the fuss was about with Drex, and his voice was really annoying.  While it is never a good thing to be fired, especially around the holidays, I really hope he will land another gig…just not in Chicago.

UPDATE: so after Drex was fired, Mel T quit! Loyal for sure, but not a good move in a bad economy.  He was making over $1 million, she was probably at $50K!  Not too many stations hiring right now, so she should have hung in there.  Hope he finds THEM a new gig!

UPDATE 2/27/11:
