We caught wind of the axing of the "Jamie, Jack and Stench" show on Star 98.7 in the L.A. Times Calendar Weekend this morning:

In a news release, the station said that "Star 98.7 management decided that the show is not a long-term fit with the music-intensive, artist-driven direction that began last April…." The station said it would announce plans for the morning show "in the coming week."

Jamie has always been in the midst of some controversy during her nearly nine years with the station. First, Star management got rid of her original Frosty and Frank team and brought in the ever-entertaining Danny Bonaduce, who was later replaced by Jack and Stench.

While LAist was never a fan of her grating voice and annoying cackle, Jamie did have some fans out there -- we think -- and will be truly missed by them.

Meanwhile, let's hope Star gets its act together real soon and develops its own personality. Maybe even start playing some interesting music, maybe?
