KTTS on-air personality Cash Williams is no longer with the radio station.
Williams, who had worked for the station for nine years, announced his exit on Facebook Friday. On country music station KTTS-FM, Williams was the co-host of the “Morning Show with Cash and Nancy.”
“I want to get ahead of this, because it’s my right and my life: I was let go from KTTS this morning after 9 years,” he wrote in a Feb. 1 post. “That’s all I can say, but I want to thank you for always supporting me.”
In a video posted yesterday, Williams called his exit “definitely unexpected” and said it “definitely hurt.”
“I didn’t do anything wrong to get fired,” he said in the video. “The reason was they decided to go a different direction, which is their right.”
Janelle Moffett, president of KTTS owner SummitMedia LLC’s Springfield operations, could not be reached for comment by deadline. Birmingham, Alabama-based SummitMedia also owns KSPW-FM, KRVI-FM and KSGF-FM. Moffett recently was promoted to president from general sales manager, succeeding Rex Hansen.
The “KTTS Morning Show’s” Facebook page mentioned Williams in a Facebook post.
“We here at the station wish nothing but the best for Cash and are thankful for the time he spent with us,” the post reads.
KTTS’ website still lists Nancy Simpson as host of the “KTTS Morning Show.”
“I love Nancy Simpson. She’s still a good friend of mine,” Williams said in the video on Facebook. “I will continue to support her.”
Williams last year accepted the KTTS Radio Station of the Year for small market award at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
