Neil Rogers OFF WQAM!!!

Veteran talk host Neil Rogers is leaving middays at Sports/Talk WQAM-AM/Miami, but will consult with the station as part of a new agreement. Rogers' show, often top rated, began in 1997. He was suspended indefinitely in May after dropping a fleeting expletive on his program.

According to Joe Bell, VP and Market Manager for Beasley's Miami Radio cluster, a Sports/Talk show will launch immediately from 10am to 2pm, whereas Rogers' program was all Talk.

Rogers' agent and attorney Norm Kent said, "Mr. Rogers has no intention of seeking other on-air work at this time, and has directed me not to seek any such employment, though under our agreement with WQAM, this is not prohibited."

Bell added, "Neil Rogers was a ratings leader in Miami for years and we're happy that we could reach a new accord that works well for both parties." (06-22-09)
