Tulsa's 97.5 KMOD confirms Phil & Brent, the Morning Zoo, will not come back for a finale week. The pair failed to reach a contract agreement with radio station owner, Clear Channel, last week.
The pair's original last day was set for October 12th, but officials at the radio station say KMOD will run "best of" shows this week, and the pair will not return after their scheduled vacation.
Phil Douglas and Brent Stone hosted the Morning Zoo for close to 27 years.
In a statement last week, KMOD program director Don Cristi said, "They have meant so much to me, our listeners, our clients and decades of fellow employees, that I find myself speechless and lacking the proper level of hyperbole to sum up their exit."
97.5 KMOD announced on its website Monday that the Big Mad Morning Show from 92.1 will take over the morning drive show weekdays, starting October 22nd.
