Los Angeles Times: Jamie White to end host job
Jamie White’s nearly nine-year run as a morning host at KYSR-FM (98.7) came to an end Wednesday with the announcement that the “Jamie, Jack and Stench” show would not be returning.
In a news release, the station said that “Star 98.7 management decided that the show is not a long-term fit with the music-intensive, artist-driven direction that began last Aprilâ€¦.”
White had been teamed with Jack Hine and Mike Roberts on the talk and interview show since mid-2005. She previously partnered with Danny Bonaduce for six years and before that with Frosty Stillwell and Frank Kramer.
The station said it would announce plans for the morning show “in the coming week.”
Flap guesses you don’t PISS OFF one of the most popular AM radio hosts at KFI (Clear Channel).
Bill Handel’s daughters were in the KYSR studios this morning. Apparently Jamie White needed her producer to do something and the producer was looking for a soft ball that the Handel twins had lost. Jamie asked the girls to leave.
Minutes later, in a rage Bill Handel stormed into the KYSR studio and live on the air screamed at Jamie White: “Don’t you ever talk to my kids that way again, Jamie, I’m going to kick your ass.”
“Bill, I tell them they can’t be right there,” Jamie yells back.
(Screaming louder) “You have such goddam losing numbers on this loser show. Don’t you talk to my kids that way.”
Someone may have attempted to touch Bill, because he responded, “Don’t you touch me!”
Jamie: “Get out of here.”
Bill: “Fuck you. Go fuck yourself.”
Jamie: “Your nuts.”
Well, Jamie White ends her nine year run on STAR 98.7 mornings.
Was Bill Handel right in calling White and her show a LOSER?
Or contribute to her firing/replacement?
