Comedian leaves WPYX after newspaper article
Radio personality and comedian Eddie Clark and Clear Channel Communications came to a decision to part ways on Friday following a meeting between the two sides, according to a story by Tom Quinlan at
The former co-host of 106.5 WPYX's "Wakin' Up With The Wolf" weekday morning program had recently done an interview with the Times Union which appeared in Friday's sports section and was not reported to Clear Channel Communications before it was published, a violation of company rules according to Clark.
But Clark was quick to point out that Clear Channel Communications specifically told him this was not the reason which ultimately led to Clark and the company's separation. Clear Channel Communications was not available for comment.
"At the end of the day, they did what they had to do," said Clark, who said he harbors no ill feelings toward his former employer.
Clark is also currently appearing on WOFX Sunday mornings on the nationally syndicated "Race Day On Fox" program.
