I’m told Josh Innes is out at WIP, as of today.
We’ll have more soon.
UPDATE: I’m trying to pinpoint the exact reason, but it is believed that Innes, who had been suspended by WIP in January for making a “house negro” comment about Jason Kelce, went too far in his response to 97.5’s fake caller “Dwayne From Swedesboro.” At one point during the show yesterday, Innes said something about the black guys who cut Mike Missanelli’s lawn (I’m paraphrasing as we are trying to dig up the exact quote). There was also this Tweet:

However, it’s possible that the sum total of Innes’ continued efforts to push the line, particularly with regard to race, just became too much for WIP to deal with.
Innes was in the building today, preparing for his show, and was informed sometime before 1 p.m. THE MUSIC MUST:
