    According to the Wolf Facebook page, Fitz in the Morning (from Seattle) has been cancelled on the Wolf. A new morning show will be announced soon.

    Rumors say that Mike & Amy are coming back.

    Once again, another attempt at cost savings by plugging in a Seattle show here fails miserably. They'll never learn...this is a unique place.

    Hope that rumour isn't just conjecture, FS...

    My source is, which is written by local radio legend and business owner Dave Stone. I consider that a pretty good source for a rumor.

    I thought that Mike already had a job, per a recent thread.

    Well Mike is still listed on the WRAL website.

    Although the link that Save posted still works, if you go to the home page there's absolutely no reference or link to the morning show. The station's FB and Twitter have been thoroughly scrubbed of morning show mentions, too, at least back to 5/1 (that's all I could take).

    If this comes to pass I'd love to hear the "rest of the story". When I worked back east (Richmond), people would have crawled on their bellies down I-85 to work at CBC...great ownership, all the latest toys, and they treated their people well. Plus, the Triangle has a robust, diverse economy and has actually become a pleasant place to live.

    Either the gravitational pull of the Northwest was too much, or that's a mighty big carrot that someone on Bancroft dangled in front of Mr. Chase.

    This from All Access:

    ---------------------------------------Lynda Loveland And Mike Chase Exit WRAL---------------------------------------

    CAPITOL BROADCASTING AC WRAL (MIX 101.5)/RALEIGH, NC's LYNDA LOVELAND and MIKE CHASE will be leaving the station as LOVELAND takes some time to pursue new career opportunities, and MIKE CHASE returns to his home and family in PORTLAND.

    Co-Host LYNDA LOVELAND had been with the station for over 15 years as either an anchor for WRAL-TV or radio host.

    According to WRAL GM ARDIE GREGORY, "Change can be difficult. All of us will miss LYNDA and MIKE."

    This was on the WRAL facebook page today.

    MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM

    6 hours ago

    MIX 101.5 announced yesterday changes to the station’s morning programming. Lynda Loveland and Mike Chase are leaving The MIX Morning Show.

    Co-host Lynda Loveland has been with Capitol Broadcasting Company for more than 15 years either as an Anchor on WRAL-TV or radio co-host. She is taking time off to identify and pursue other career options. Mike Chase is returning to his home and family in Portland. Chase and Loveland’s last day on-air was yesterday.

    We will announce our plans for The Mix Morning Show in the coming weeks. In the transition, MIX listeners will still hear WRAL-TV news and weather updates in the morning hours, as well as, traffic information with Vanna Fox.

    We thank Lynda and Mike for their dedication to our station and wish them the best in the future.

    WOW portland radio is starting to get much more interesting/awesome! With the return of Mike Chase on the Wolf and the return of Bill Prescott on KGON we are really starting to get some good local radio with great air personalities.
    The only ones that just dont get it and continue to bring in syndication morning shows is Cheap channel.

    Looking forward to hearing Mike Chase on the wolf and I really hope that KGON is smart enough to let Bill Prescott have an actual morning show where he gets to talk. Sorry but backselling a song and THATS it is almos insultive to Mr Prescott. He has proven himself in the market that he can put on great morning radio.Now lets remove the noose from Bill Prescott and let him have a real morning show KGON! Its long overdue! Love Bill Prescott!

    BTW- I think its funny that Mike Chase's partner on Mix is named Lynda Loveland. Everytime I hear that last name i think of Linda Lovelace, the Hardcore porn actress who was in the hardcore porno "deep Throat". :lol:
