K-Hits personality KJ Mac is let go; new voice takes over 'afternoon drive' slot

On-air personality KJ Mac, program director at ’70s/’80s station K-Hits 107.1 FM, was let go Thursday.

The departure is part of restructuring at Journal Broadcast Group of Boise's radio stations, according to vice president and general manager Marie McGlynn.

Some of Mac's duties will be handled by recently hired radio station manager/general sales manager Roy Williams. Others — including the 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekday "afternoon drive" slot — have been taken over by Variety Rock 105.1 FM program director Jim Allen.

Mac has been a staple for around a decade at K-Hits. He has worked at other Treasure Valley stations including KFXD-AM, KGEM-AM and KQFC-FM. His voice is instantly recognizable to fans of Boise State basketball. He's the P.A. announcer at games, where he's known for a signature traveling-violation proclamation: "Wwwwwwaaaaaaallllllking."

Mac was unavailable for comment. His phone number is not accepting calls.

Probably not from anybody connected to Journal...

Duhhh.

Don't forget that he did duties at KBOI as well, if memory serves me right. Maybe KRBX should hire him and let him do the Friday afternoon slot as well.

I went to San Francisco in 1982 and discovered Carl's JR.

Sad

When J105 went automated I was disappointed. I loved listening to Pete and Joe in the morning, and the afternoon guys. So I switched over to KHits for my mornings after they dumped the DJs. Now KJ is gone. Get ready Tracy and Margo. You are probably in their crosshairs now. What a bunch of fools running that outfit.

It's the owners of the Milwaukee Journal, sailor...

I quit listening to local

I quit listening to local radio when Q104 left.

That was thirty years ago...do you own a vast 78 rpm library?

If he's really gone then why is his bio page still there?
