One alert PBRTV reader asked today via Facebook, “What happened to Quinn & Rose?”
Apparently the duo, known for their program based at Pittsburgh’s WPGB-FM (104.7) and aired across several stations in the country, was missing this morning. One would normally chalk that up to vacation, but a quick visit to WPGB’s website indicates that there is no sign of either Jim Quinn or Rose Somma-Tennent and a generic program was airing in its place. Meanwhile, the program’s War Room website remains in tact, but contains no information as to the show’s whereabouts. However, the site indicates that there are two appearances scheduled in the upcoming months. Stay tuned…
UPDATE: Thanks to another alert PBRTV reader, a Facebook Status Update shows that the program has, in fact, been taken off the air. The person responsible for updating the page has no further information than the program has been removed from WPGB and all affiliates carrying the program.
UPDATE 2: Another status update on the (unofficial?) Quinn & Rose Facebook page quotes WPGB Program Director Gregg Henson, “WPGB tired to reach new terms with Quinn & Rosee, but that was unsuccessful, they will be moving on and we support and thank them.”
Note: This story was originally written as a speculative piece and was updated as new information was received. Several outlets have since confirmed that the Quinn & Rose Morning Show is no longer on the air after an unsuccessful contract discussion.
