KMAG's Maverick Departs

iHeartMedia KMAG/Ft. Smith, AR PD/afternoon personality Darren “Maverick” Minor has exited the cluster, where he also handled programming duties for Classic Rock KKBD, Hot AC KZBB and News-Talk KWHN-AM, following a tweet he sent in response to University of Arkansas womens' basketball player Erynn Barnum. See local coverage of the issue here. Minor joined iHeartMedia in 2012 (CAT 7/5/12) and added programming duties following the departure of Steve Knoll in January (CAT 1/14). His prior career stops include time with crosstown Big Chief Country KTCS. OM Dave Ashcraft tells Country Aircheck Country sister KSSN/Little Rock afternoon personality Bo Dalton will track afternoons for KMAG in the interim, and plans for the PD role are yet to be determined.
