Buh-bye Jamie White
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."
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?
