WMAL’s Ham Abruptly Signs Off

So this is fishy.

WMAL’s Mary Katharine Ham has dropped off the airwaves. According to a letter she posted on her personal blog dated today, she’s elated not to have to wake up so obscenely early. She delicately explains why she and the station are parting ways:

“If you’re a regular listener, you may have noticed I wasn’t on the radio this morning on 105.9 FM WMAL, where I’m wont to be from 5-9 a.m. Alas, I won’t be there anymore, which means I didn’t have to get up at 3 a.m. today (Yay!), but also that I will miss the WMAL crew and my buddies Bryan and Brian who will carry on the morning show without me.

“The folks at the company had a vision for a different, independent role for me at the station, but we just weren’t able to come to an agreement that would make it work, so I’m off to do my other jobs. I’m constantly thankful I have the freedom to make decisions like that, and realize it’s a tremendous blessing to have such options.”

Ham will be on a plethora of Fox News programs this week including on The O’Reilly Factor tonight as well as Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld.
