Longtime local morning radio personalities Todd and Erin are no longer at B-98.7, the station they’ve called home for 11 years. They learned Tuesday morning that they were being let go.
Their departure was not something they expected. Nor were they anticipating the outpouring of support.
"Tell everyone thank you for the good wishes," Erin Collard said. "This is an amazing community. I’ve been really touched by how amazing everyone’s been on Facebook already."
"This is a great opportunity," joked Todd Collard. "My mornings have been freed up and, you know — paper route. That’s what I’m thinking."
Todd Collard and Erin Fraser first worked together on air in 1994 when Erin joined the team of Fisher and Todd at KISN 97.1. Three years later, Collard and Fraser married.
The duo left KISN in 2001. After sitting out a six-month non-compete period, they joined B-98.7 in 2002. They remained there until Tuesday. And they’re looking for new jobs.
"We’ve already gotten some phone calls," Erin Collard said. "And we can work right away. They can’t hold us to a six-month no-compete,"
"I’m serious about the paper route!" Todd Collard joked.
