According to WPTV5, on Thursday Gerrard says he was called into his manager's office where they said his performance was not in question but his position did not make business sense.
Why the sudden change? This week Alpha Media USA's ownership of WMEN-AM and WFTL-AM became official. Meaning the radio group can now manage its seven radio signals the way that makes the most budgetary sense.
Before working at WFTL Gerrard was employed at Clear Channel Radio (now iHeartRadio) as the morning anchor for WJNO 1290 AM.
Alpha Media operates six signals in South Florida including 103.1 WIRK 103.1 FM, WEAT Sunny 107.9 FM, WRMF 97.9 FM, WMBX X102.3 FM, Fox Sports WMEN 640 AM, and WFTL-AM.
