After eight months on the job, Bo Jaxon has exited KTTS-FM and owner SummitMedia LLC, Springfield Business Journal confirmed.
Nancy Simpson, co-host with Jaxon of the “KTTS Morning Show,” said via Facebook Messenger that Jaxon moved back to Denver to be closer to family. He started in February, coming to Springfield from Denver, where he previously worked six years as a program director and morning host for KSE Radio Ventures.
“Bo has been gone three weeks now,” Simpson said, noting afternoon host Rick Moore has been working with her on the “Morning Show.”
“We're working on future plans,” she added.
Jaxon’s LinkedIn profile indicates he’s now living in the Denver area and “seeking new opportunities to create a fun, upbeat, positive vibe in the office and on the radio.”
Jaxon and SummitMedia-Springfield executives Janelle Moffett and Chris Pridgen could not be reached for comment by deadline after repeated inquiries.
Jaxon’s entry to Springfield followed the termination of former “KTTS Morning Show” co-host Cash Williams, who worked for the radio station for nine years, SBJ previously reported. Beyond co-hosting the “Morning Show,” Jaxon also was named operations manager for SummitMedia’s local operations — comprising KTTS-FM, KSPW-FM, KRVI-FM and KSGF-FM.
