One Less Monster In Orlando

Longtime Orlando radio personality Daniel Dennis, who appeared on the Monsters in the Morning show on WTKS-FM Real Radio 104.1, has left the station amid a contract disagreement.

The Orlando Sentinel reports a YouTube video posted Tuesday titled "Goodbye," Dennis says Clear Channel, the owners of Real Radio 104.1, offered him a three-year deal, but he wanted to work for the company without a contract.

"That just wasn't something they wanted me to do," he says. "They were pretty dead-set on me signing a deal. I didn't want to sign a deal. I would have just rather worked."

Representatives from Clear Channel could not be reached for comment.

The Monsters are known for its crude humor, sexual innuendoes and off-color jokes, "Monsters" has been an Orlando radio mainstay for more than 15 years. Dennis joined the cast in 1999.

Monsters in the Morning personalities Rollins and Dirty Jim each accepted a three-year contract from the station, according to a blog post by Rollins on the Real Radio website. The Monsters in the Morning show has been a morning-commute program on Real Radio since 2004.
