Not heard Mary Ellen Murphy on LAV in a while. Just checked the websight and shes gone. Anybody know what happened to her?. Steve Aldrich is in her time slot. Is it just me , or does his mic sound over modulated when he talks?

I saw her Facebook post as well.
I have a hard time believing she ever had a 'contract'. Morning shows, for sure, but a mid-day jock these days? Doubtful.

Frankly, although I have nothing to back me up, I think she just got let go to save money and her comment is a 'spin' on it. That's fine, but still, not truthful. Seriously, who wouldn't take 'any' kind of 'contract' (if there really are any left) in this current 'in-the-shitter' period of radio?

Mary Ellen did fill that second or third person on the morning show role for a while, prior to Michelle McCormick's departure from WOOD. Can't say if that merited a contract but I wish her well, regardless.
Michelle was said to be sick earlier this week, when I bounced past WLAV one morning. Do they have that full complement back on the Tony Gates show?
It draws comparison to the end of the "War of the Worlds" broadcast where the guy is calling out to major AM stations across the U.S. and getting no response. "Is there anyone out there? Is there anyone?"

I can't believe he's still alive. He always has sounded like crap, but has an amazing knowledge of Rock music.

Thought he was good in the evening slot, now it would be nice if they could get something besides the person they have now. At least the Tigers games will be on soon

Always liked Steve Aldrich, good knowledge of Rock Music and has the voice for radio. LAV was one of my favorites over the years. Mary Ellen did a fine job.
