CUMULUS Hot AC WRQX (MIX 107.3)/WASHINGTON, D.C. is another station being sold to EMF, and morning star JACK DIAMOND is paying tribute to the station this morning. You can listen here.
He wrote on his FACEBOOK page, “In everything in life, there is always a final day. Today is the final day in the storied 30 year history of MIX 107.3 as host of THE JACK DIAMOND SHOW. Will pay homage and celebrate the legacy of the many greats who worked on Q107 and for the past 30 years on THE JACK DIAMOND SHOW. It’s been an incredible run by a remarkable staff powered by you. You! If you hadn’t listened, if you aren’t listening, none of this matters.
CUMULUS VP/Hot AC and WRQX PD ROB ROBERTS told ALL ACCESS, “Today we got to celebrate the legacy of 107.3 in D.C. and bring back some of the greatest talents of its past. I am so proud and grateful that everyone accepted our invite to come on and talk with JACK about what he, his show, and this station means to them. Love and emotions ran high, and it was a pleasure to be a part of it all. It’s hard to say good bye, but executing an amazing send out like today, makes it easier.”
