Patch.com, a spokesperson for Weststport Communications, which owns the station, was not immediately available for comment Friday afternoon. The station's Website has been stripped clean of references to the two hosts. A message on McGonagle's personal Facebook page confirmed that the two are no longer with the station.
The move comes less than five months after switching its format to adult contemporary from Oldies and unveiling a "Keep it Local" branding campaign. But for many listeners, it didn't get more local than Hersey, a long-time Massachusetts radio and TV personality perhaps best known for hosting the "Movie Loft" for several years on WSBK.
The station shifted formats the day after Christmas to what it called a "more family-friendly" format. The shift came after months of testing, Westport said at the time.
