WV Radio Corp., Danny Jones Officially Part Ways

Post by unchoopfan » Wed Apr 29, 2020 5:23 pm

After four years in the morning talk slot at 580 WCHS-AM, WV Radio Corp. SVP/GM Joe Parsons today announced that former Charleston Mayor Danny Jones will not be returning to the station's 9 a.m time slot, bringing an end to his latest talk stint on the Charleston airwaves. Station management says the initial decision was Jones' to walk away with the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic.

"On March 17th, 2020 with the COVID 19 pandemic upon us West Virginia Radio announced that they would have employees only in studio during their shows which meant no outside guests. At that time Jones indicated that he didn't think he could do the show without outside guests and stepped aside," Parsons said in a press release. "After subsequent discussions about the show returning, West Virginia Radio Corporation has decided to pursue other content options for that time period... Danny Jones brought a very unique perspective to the air and we thank him for his contributions during his time with West Virginia Radio Corporation."

No longer the Mayor, now irrelevant.
