Flagship WKTU drops Whoopi Goldberg


Looks like Premiere Radio Networks’ Whoopi is becoming toast: Rhythmic CHR WKTU-FM has dropped the syndicated "Wake Up With Whoopi" show. The NY Daily News reported that a memo was circulated to the WKTU staff saying the station would stop carrying the show as yesterday morning. Indeed, an overnighter was filling in yesterday, playing music. This is the third market dropping the show in weeks-including CC Radio’s WISX-FM Philadelphia and WLIT-FM Chicago. She’s got eight more markets left. We wonder where she’ll get behind the mic, at "The View" studios?
