Here is the text of McGurren’s post:

Hi. It’s Melissa. I was not expecting to lớn bởi vì this đoạn Clip today. Work sent out a statement today, and it’s been not the most easy thing to deal with seeing that. I will say I’ve been trying lớn figure out the best way khổng lồ handle it, but that statement was not accurate. And I just think that the most important thing is the truth. And hopefully — not hopefully — it will, the truth will come out. And I’ve sầu always wanted to work at The Mix, and this is not how I saw things coming. So here I sit. I can’t even believe this, I am where I am right now. This is bizarre.

Most importantly thank you for all your support. Thank you for the kind words. You guys give me hope in humanity, and I want you all to know that all the feelings I have for you are mutual. I have become friends with so many of you và the listeners. And it has been a really great experience. So I just wanted to say thank you and make sure that I make that point. Thank you.

Can’t wait lớn see what the future holds for you.”

Thursday’s phản hồi of the day: Kevin Singer: Hearing Steve Alexander for the past 12 years doing the agribusiness reporting, it just seemed like a natural succession when Orion decided khổng lồ điện thoại tư vấn it a career. His presentation and knowledge of how he reported these stories over the years were consistent with what Orion has done. It’s nice lớn see Nexstar recognize the talents from within rather than trying to reinvent the wheel by bringing someone external in without consistency. Let’s just hope that they continue lớn recognize types of talents và in doing so, bring GN baông xã towards a radio station that it once was in Chicago (which includes not airing Green Bay Packer games on a Sunday afternoon).
