Donnie Simpson leaving DC radio after 32 years
Due to declining ratings, and "internal friction between Simpson and WPGC's management," Simpson decided to break his contract and separate himself from the WPGC.
You may have noticed in the past few months, that Donnie's show has been attempting to reinvent its image; hiring new DJs, and playing more hip hop; even adding an Entertainment News section and other typical morning show Tomfoolery that Donnie Simpson tended to avoid.
While Donnie's morning show was atypical, he had a strong following of DMV and Baltimore dwellers. His voice and fatherly presence will be missed in DC.
