KFRX Parts Ways With PD/Morning Host Following Domestic Assault Arrest
Alpha Media CHR 106.3 KFRX Lincoln NE has let go of Program Director/morning host Matt ‘McKay’ Rydberg after his arrest last month on charges of assaulting and strangling his wife.
Rydberg was arrested on April 21 after his wife said that he pushed on her neck and face, bit her nose and shoved her following an argument. He faces three years in prison for the strangulation charges and was immediately placed on leave from the station.
Rydberg had been heard in the Lincoln market since 1999 working at Clear Channel Modern AC “104.1 The Point” KKNB before joining KFRX. APD/midday host Lindsey Jenkins is now listed as the Program Director on the station’s website while afternoon host Dewayne ‘D-Wayne’ Taylor is currently leading the morning show alongside Megan King and Willy J.
