Marissa Exits KQKQ After 10 Months

Marissa, courtesy of myspace.comKQKQ (98.5 FM) midday maven “Marissa” is gone, a scant 10 months after arriving from her hometown of Albany, N.Y. The deaths of a relative and friend as well as illnesses in her family led her to make April 27 her last airshift at “Q 98 Five.”

“I could really feel the stress starting to take a toll on me not only emotionally, but physically as well,” she said. “So, I decided it was time to get back to New York.”

She’s not giving up radio, though. She has already secured a pair of part-time jock shifts on Albany’s urban/crossover hit station WAJZ (96.3 FM) and Top 40/Pop station WFLY (92.3 FM).

With Marissa’s departure, “Sterling” has moved from nights to middays at KQKQ, meaning Program Director Nevin Dane is currently looking for a new night jock.

Best of luck to Marissa. Good for her for putting family matters ahead of professional pursuits. Jobs come and go, but family is forever. :)

Too bad she left...between her, Sterling and JT, Q had the triumvirate of hot radio chicks in Omaha.

JT hot? Only if you are of the same sex as her. By the way, evertime JT laughs she's closer to losing a lung. I mean really, how many cigs does she smoke a day.

Marissa sure blows out the theory behind "a face made for radio" -- best wishes in your future endeavors.

Old Coot would be the ultimate "Pilot of the Airwaves" but that music would drive Coot over the edge... of something.
