After news that his partner on the popular Mix 106.5 morning show had been let go, Reagan Warfield posted an emotional tribute to Jojo Girard on Facebook.
"The last 24 hours have been and emotional blur," wrote Warfield, who remains at the station. "This is tough."
Girard confirmed to The Sun Thursday that he was told immediately after his show that day that his contract would not be renewed.
Girard posted on Facebook: "have joined the ranks of the unemployed at least I'm not alone."
He then told The Sun, "They opted not to pick up my contract."
Girard had worked at the station since 1994. He was originally teamed with Kenny Campbell and worked on the Jojo and Reagan show for the last six years.
Warfield said on Facebook that Girard "took him in" as a 19-year-old intern and he's spent more time with him since than anyone else in his life.
"I wish I could put into words the impact he's had on me," Warfield wrote. "He is an amazingly talented and genuinely good person, my mentor and more importantly my friend."
Calls to the station's head of programming Dave Labrozzi haven't been returned.
