Jack Diamond, a longtime fixture on Washington’s radio airwaves for more than two decades, has broadcast his last program on Cumulus-owned WRQX-FM Mix 107.3, according to The Washington Post.
Diamond was scrubbed from the station’s Web site after his broadcast Friday morning. Station Manager Mark O’Brien said in an e-mail that an announcement about Diamond’s replacement would be made today, according to The Washington Post.
