Fred Grandy (a.k.a Gopher from “The Love Boat) and Andy Parks are out. FishbowlDC sources have confirmed and DCRTV is reporting that WMAL’s (630 AM) duo has been fired. Grandy is a former Republican member of Congress.

It won’t happen immediately — their end date is still up in the air.
The news has been circulating at the station all day long. Word has it that corporate-wide cuts of the most expensive employees are necessary to save money.

Station manager Paul Duckworth did not return a phone request for comment at FBDC press time.
