Jack Harris, the longtime host of AM Tampa Bay on NewsRadio 970 WFLA, said he got fired, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
“After I signed off from my show at 7 a.m. today, iHeartRadio bosses told me that they were cutting back on expenses and had to let me go,” Harris told the Times.
He’s been with the station variably since 1971, including the last 29 years.
Harris believes his two-hour slot weekdays from 5-7 a.m. will be absorbed into The Ryan Gorman Show, which currently runs 7-10 a.m., though that hasn’t been confirmed by WFLA.
