Why Karen Vail is no longer on “The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon”

I’m a big fan of Frank O. Pinion, currently on KTRS 550 AM in St. Louis. He’s a radio genius. One of the players, Karen Vail was let go last week. Frank offers his explanation in an audio file (see below).

I commend him for many reasons. Right now, I commend him most for the fact that he acknowledges when an on-air personality leaves/is fired/quits/etc. Usually, silence is the only thing that follows such an event.

Hear Frank’s explanation here

Best wishes to Karen Vail.

Memo to the rest of the radio industry: We listeners notice when someone goes missing from your airwaves, don’t pretend they never existed.
