Whose Star 98.7 is This?

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

While we are kind of obsessed with Breaking Bonaduce and its completely manic star (and while the destruction of a marriage and a man shouldn't be compelling television, it totally totally is and quite possibly for all the right reasons. It is sad and heartbreaking and honest and, dare we say it, real), we haven't listened to Star 98.7 much since the Jamie, Frosty and Frank days. We still know the names of the DJs though and never thought they were part of the problem on the station that seems to want to be the VH-1 to KIIS-FM's MTV. Well, at least we thought we knew who the DJs were. Yeah...But At Least I Live in Los Angeles noted late last week that Lisa Foxx (who we feel like has been at the station since its launch. Are we right when think Star is less than a decade old?) is no longer with the station.

Nobody tell Danny. We're not sure he can take it in his current mental state.
