According to Chicago Media Blogger Robert Feder, word of Luv’s departure comes one day after ratings for “The Real Show” he hosted with Joe Soto had returned to No. 1 in the market. In the Nielsen Audio report released Tuesday, evenings on V103 had a 5.9 percent share and a cumulative weekly audience of 475,900.
His last broadcast on V103 was Friday, and his last public appearance was at the Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic, a house music festival Saturday in Jackson Park.
