West Palm Radio: Gerrard Campbell OUT At N/T WFTL

Long-stay South Florida morning radio anchor Gerrard Campbell was let go from his job at WFTL 850 AM.

Just over a month ago Jennifer Ross and Bill Adams joined him during the morning show and Gerrard was super gracious about taking a supporting role, "It'll be good. I can concentrate on news, and Jenn & Bill bring their big names to 850 in a bigger capacity."

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.
