Sports Radio 560 WQAM-AM and Neil Rogers, Inc. have announced that veteran talk show host Neil Rogers is giving up his day to day show on WQAM but will consult with the station as part of a new agreement. Rogers was suspended in May for uttering the “f-bomb.”
According to Joe Bell, VP and Market Manager for Beasley’s Miami Radio cluster, a sports talk show will launch immediately from 10 a.m. – 2p.m.
Rogers’ agent and attorney, Norm Kent, said, “Mr. Rogers has no intention of seeking other on-air work at this time, and has directed me not to seek any such employment, though under our agreement with WQAM, this is not prohibited.”
First hired in 1997, Neil Rogers was the only general talk host on WQAM which is otherwise dedicated to sports. His popular top-rated show aired from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. EST weekdays.
Bell added, “Neil Rogers was a ratings leader in Miami for years and we’re happy that we could reach a new accord that works well for both parties.”
