What Happened To Jay Love?
So what happened to Jay Love? Nobody at The Buzz (1230 WDBZ-AM) will say what happened to the afternoon talk host who vanished from the airwaves two weeks ago. His 1-4 p.m. shift has been absorbed by expanding Lincoln Ware's show to 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and program director Jeri Tolliver to 2-5 p.m.
It's the second time Love – son of founder and former owner J. Ross Love — has left the station. He quit in 2006 to work for AIDS Volunteers of Cincinnati (AVOC), but returned to his afternoon shift last year.
I guessing he didn't leave voluntarily this time. Tolliver and VP/General Manager Lisa Thal don't return phone calls. Thal replied to my email questions about Love by saying only: "Jay is no longer with the station. Hope all is well with you."
Love started in radio as Jim Scott's WLW-AM producer in 1995. He was a WIZ morning DJ and newsman 1997-2000, then helped his father put The Buzz on the air.
What happened to Jay Love? Was it a budget cut? Or something else? If you know, please post some comments...
