After seventeen years with the station with fourteen of those in mornings Loo Katz is out at iHeartMedia AC 97.1 WASH Washington DC.
Katz has spent 46 years on the air in the Washington market with runs at 95.5 WPGC, 105.1 WAVA, and “Mix 107.3” WRQX prior to joining WASH in 2000. Co-host Chilli Amar will remain in place while.
Katz wrote on Facebook:
Today, after 17 years, I was fired from my longtime job at 97.1 WASH-FM. The reason given to me was ‘poor ratings’ and ‘it was time for a change.’ I had just completed my 14th year of hosting Morning Drive along with the almost 3 years of doing afternoons.
