Kristi Leigh OUT At WMMX Dayton, OH

Kristi Leigh
Kristi Leigh, formerly with the Mix Morning Show on WMMX Mix 107.7 FM, is no longer listed on the station’s Web site as a DJ for the morning show, and loyal listeners are crying out on the station’s Facebook page in anger that she was let go.

Leigh had been with the station more than 20 years, according to a story at bizjournals.com

Clear Channel hasn’t commented.

However, many listeners have on Facebook.  A sampling….
  • Clear Channell = Pathetic!! Hopefully The Fly will pick her up. I am switching stations and will follow Kristi for the next 20 years!!
  • Once again "Corporate" screws up big time. I think they will see a huge hit in ratings - She was a icon in the Dayton area and had many loyal fans. BOO on Clear Channel!
  • MIX 107.7 will NOT be the same without Kristi!!! So sad she is gone. (Love Jeff & Dave, too) but the mornings won't be the same. Listening to Kristi & Jeff in the mornings made me laugh to hysterics - I knew they would bring me up if I was feeling down. Besides playing music - the personal interactions between the on-air personalities is a BIG reason why I listen to certain stations - and the banter between Jeff & Kristi made MIX 107.7 the popular station it has become over the years. I thought the goal of radio station executives was to draw listeners TO their stations - not drive them away!! I guess I am missing something. This is just another example of upper management just NOT getting it. Whoever was responsible for letting Kristi go - I hope you soon regret your decision. Good Luck with your future Kristi - you deserve it!!
Kristi Leigh observed her 20th year anniversary in 2011.

  2. Personally not sad she is gone. Very opinionated on some things that she should have just kept to herself... Not everyone has to live like you Kristi.....

  3. We will miss you so very much, I will no longer listen to wmmx. Oops that is not true where I work it is the only station that will come in. This is the first time I have been able to put a picture behind the voice.

  4. I stopped listening to her the day she refused to read the school closing list during a winter storm, she said listeners should go to the web site. I'm sure the kids that were standing at bus stops in the freezing snow for buses that would never come just loved her job dedication.

    1. The station made that rule, not Kristie!

    2. The station makes the decisions. They took the school snow lists off the air, not Kristie.

    3. Get real! Why waste valuable air time repeating the school closing list over & over! Most schools now have the One Call system anyway, or check out the TV! Seems like a very petty reason to me!

  7. Kristi Leith was the only reason I allowed 107.7 to be my morning wake-up station for the past 20 years. The music 107.7 plays stinks. I'm switching to an alarm clock.

  8. So glad she is gone! It was obvious she detested her job. Love Jeff and Dave, though. I hope they get Doreen to join them in the morning.

  9. I thought she was just on vacation and have been missing her. The show is just not the same without her. I wish her good luck and feel the 107.7 lost a wonderful asset. Good luck Kristi!

  10. I like Jeff and Dave but it just isn't the same without Kristi. I've been listening to her for so long that it seems strange not to hear her voice in the morning when my radio alarm goes off. I hope she finds another job soon so I can switch to that station.

  11. The Mix Morning Show WAS Jeff and Kristi, with Dave as an added asset in the news position. Without Kristi, the show lacks the banter between the hosts. There will be no point, counter point; and that provided a lot of laughs over the years. Now it is just another boring morning radio show (nothing against Jeff and Dave as I do think they are great!). I will still listen every now and then, but not the morning show any longer. Best of luck, Kristi!

  12. Here we go...... Another JCPenny decision! Did Clear channel hire the idiot form JCP??

  13. I am shocked by this!!

  14. Guess 106.5 will have to do for now. Jeff and Dave, I'll miss you, but it is just not the same. And all you nay sayers, when do any of us have the same opinion. It's free speech, and we all have that. Kristi, I know you will land on your feet! You didn't last 20 years because you didn't do your job.

  15. They said goodbye to Kristi--I say goodbye 107.7

  18. What the HECK happened? Love Kristi Leigh! I will no longer listen to MIXX. I hope she turns up at another local station really SOON. Makes me sick. Twenty years at a job. That's loyality. Again, what happened? We listeners want an answer!!

  19. I thought she was on vaca and then realized it has been too long. Went to website and was shocked. Loved to laugh at the three amigos and then there were two. Kristi has been a staple as others have come and gone. So sad we will miss you and hope to hear you again soon in the mornings. Wish the best for all but very sad I really enjoyed the clean entertainment.

  20. I was wondering where Kristi was!! Did they even announce it on the air. I will miss her she did add some excitement to the morning show! I'm sorry but Jeff and Dave are a little boring without Kristi. Well best of luck Kristi, you''ll find something better!

  21. I've been wondering whats going on. It's not the same without her! Jeff, Kristi and Dave were the best morning show ever. Can't believe they would let her go! I miss hearing her...

  22. I was not the biggest fan of Kristi Leigh, but the show is just not the same with out her.

  23. I didn't see anything in the Dayton Daily - yet another person I enjoyed gone without a trace. Is this like Michelle Kingsfield from Channel 2? Her replacement is alful.

  25. WOW... so sad to hear Kristi Leigh is gone. I kept thinking that I missed thevaca announcement. So disappointed in wmmx.

  26. I will listen more to the morning WMMX now that she is gone. She was obnoxious, enjoying teasing others, but not able to take it when it was thrown back at her. She was very immature and like a little girl with not well thought out opinions.

    1. I agree! Stopped listening quite a while ago because I was tired of her snotty put downs! Happened to flip it on and was relieved not to hear her and will be tuning in more often!

    2. Absolutely. I listen to Bob and Tom now. I would rather listen to them being vulgar than her being hateful.

  27. I like others liked Kristi Leigh. I would listen to her on my way to work and it's just not the same any more. I am going to change radio stations . Those dj's in there now are not making it...

  28. I think she was a bully and disguised it as 'being funny'. In today world we can do without people like that. I hate to see anyone lose their job but honestly she needed to go. You can have banter without being rude and mean. AND true, she certainly didn't like it when she was the butt of the joke. Maybe she'll grow up and become a better person.

  29. the three of them made the morning show. Now it is on to another venue to try to fill the "laugh til I cry" moments. Thanks for the great memories.

  30. Good luck Kristi! You made the morning show fun to listen to. Goodbye Mix107.7! Hello Fly92.9

  31. She was pretty abnoxious. Glad she's gone, but the replacement is a real snore.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I too agree that Kristi was able to dish it out but not take it, so I will not really miss her. She also came across as moody on many days. I have to put up with that at work enough I dont want to deal with it from my radio. I also agree with recent comments Gina is about as exciting as watching cement dry.

  33. I saw Kristie at a social function and she was the rudest person. She was no asset so will start listening to the show again now that she is gone.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Glad - she's a frickin liberal.

  35. About time - we need "fresh" voices.

  36. That morning show started sucking after Bob Sweeney had a stroke and left. I liked Kristi, and Dave but Jeff is so not funny.....

    1. Totally agree!! With Bob and Kristi - it was a hit, but Bob was the catalyst of the duo!

  37. Ok the over all shock of Kristi is over .I for one was glad to see her go ! I was getting tired of all her child like actions and her butt and bodie function jokes. I also thought she handled herself VERY UNPROFESIONALY . But like may outhers here 1077 has fallen from the top .There is no real mix abought them anymore . Same songs , same crappy 80's on 3 day weekends just named as a diffrent promo .
    I have been loyal from the star 1077 days but the star has fallen.
    Guss unlike your am staff I have grown up.
    SO LONG MIX 107.7 The last 30 years had been a fun ride !!!!!!!!

  38. It's too bad, Kristi. Like a lot of us, I'm sure you got caught up in some corporate crap. We get too old, make too much money, so they dump us. I'm sure you'll land in a better job. I will miss your morning humor.

  39. Obviously some people don't understand sarcasm or the intelligence to spell correctly , even with spell check. Kristi made the show enjoyable for me. I haven't listened much since they started playing Christmas music before thanksgiving which is just wrong.

  40. I tuned back in one morning had been off work almost a year and didn't understand what happened to Kristi lee she made me laugh driving to Cincinnati every day for 8 years her and Jeff cracked me up I stopped listening. sorry just not the same !

  41. Glad she's gone!. She was very rude to me on the phone last year and has NO PHONE manners...later witch

  42. The show continues to suck without kristi! Clear channel did the same thing in orlando when they let erica lee (who was also very popular) go after many years in the morning show there.... i think clear channel does like women or at least paying them!!! I lusten to fly now!!!!

  43. I am glad she is gone. She was very opinionated and not friendly when she was out on location. I like Gina a lot. Good morning show.
