This included the firing of 20 people at WRBQ, WLLD-FM, WQYK-AM, WQYK-FM, WYUU-FM, and WSJT-FM where most of the on-air personalities were let go (Alicia Kaye, George Nix and Al Santana). It also includes 52 year old disc jockey "Marvelous Marvin" Boone at WRBQ...Boone had been with the station for 8 years and had hosted the 10-3pm slot there...DJ RIco Blanco takes his place.  He has been in the Tampa/St. Pete market for more than 30 years.
