Changes at WROR which spells the end of the long running Loren & Wally
Morning Show this Friday. After this past Monday's show, Hank Morse, who
spent 20 years as part of the show as traffic reporter as well as fill in
host/co-host and fill in news reader was let go. Hank posted on his Facebook
page that he was told the reason for his dismissal is the station is going
in a different direction. Today it was announced that Loren Owens will be
exiting the station after a final Loren & Wally show this Friday. Reportedly
the departure is not Loren's idea, but it's a nice gesture on Beasley's part
to allow a proper finale for the show which started back in 1981 or 82.
Loren has been on 105.7 and all it's various formats & call letters since
1981. Wally Brine retired a couple of years back but still made occasional
appearances on the show. Would be nice to have him be a part of Friday's
finale if he's available on short notice. No word on the fate of sidekicks
Lauren Beckham Falcone and "Lung Boy" (Brian Bell) but my guess is if they
aren't retained as part of the new morning show or moved to another daypart
they too may be exiting with Loren. 

Will the replacement for Loren & Wally be local or syndicated?
