Yesterday (August 4, 2008) one of the last original members of “The Breakfast Club” on Classy 100 was shown the door. “Newsman Dave” Benson was let go by Citadel due to budget cuts and did not even get a chance to say goodbye to his listeners. For over 21 years, Dave was part of a groundbreaking program called “The Breakfast Club”. A program that would become very popular among Erie radio listeners over the years with hosts like Dana Bolles, Terri Bohen and “Captain Dan” Geary. Most radio stations no longer have a dedicated news reporter and instead rely on recorded newscasts from local TV stations. Dave is one of a kind and hopefully he will return to the local airwaves in the near future. As always, your thoughs and well wishes for Dave Benson are welcome here.
