Chunky, the wild personality who worked nights at 92.3 NOW FM/WXRK since its flip in March 2009, is out. Chunky did his final shift yesterday at the CBS-owned Contemporary Hit Radio station. Starting Monday, ex-Philadelphia morning co-host, who also uses just one name–Zann– gets the 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. starting Monday, according to All Access.
Chunky, who remains under contract with CBS for an unspecified time, has no future radio plans for the moment.
“I’m kind of trying to see what’s out there,” he tells FishbowlNY. “I’m going to test waters a little bit.”
The handwriting may have been on the wall for Chunky when Rick Gillette was brought in as program director in March.
“It could be,” Chunky admits. “It could be anything. Just going in a different direction, that’s what I got.”
Although he wasn’t happy exiting, Chunky understands it is radio’s “M.O.”
“I don’t really think about stuff like that,” Chunky admits. “I just keep it going.”
