Updated 11/21 at 8:30pm: ITHACA — There’s more new information tonight surrounding the recent exit of morning host/PD Justin Wright from ROI Broadcasting’s Z95.5 (WFIZ). Station management has some corrections to information we had been provided and reported earlier. They’ve also provided us with an official job posting to fill the vacancy.
Former GM Frank Lischak says he is still involved with the station, after being promoted to VP of Sales for the company, which includes overseeing sales for the Finger Lakes Radio Group. He also confirms that Margaret Tollner has been hired to fill his old position as GM at WFIZ.
Lastly, Lischak says, “Justin Wright was dismissed as Program Director and Morning Show host of WFIZ-FM on Thursday, November 19, and is no longer employed with the company.” (We were previously led to believe Wright was only demoted from PD and still had mornings, but then left on his own accord. Our sincerest apologies for the misunderstanding. As a result of the clarifications from Lischak, our original story has been removed.)
