Andrew Z fired from radio showWritten by Sarah Ottney | Editor in Chief | firstname.lastname@example.org
Andrew Zepeda, host of the Star 105 morning show “Andrew Z in the Morning: The People’s Show,” was fired Dec. 26 by Cumulus Media along with his on-air crew, including wife Michelle Zepeda.
Cumulus Toledo General Manager Matt Spaulding verified the firing but declined to comment on reasons. Zepeda also declined comment.
“Andrew Z is no longer with the company,” Spaulding said, adding that Cumulus has not yet decided on a replacement show.
Zepeda, 43, of Perrysburg was sentenced Dec. 20 to 30 days in jail, starting Jan. 21, and five years community control, including no bars or alcohol, on three felony charges relating to a 2010 break-in at his former business. Judge Alan Mayberry of the Wood County Court of Common Pleas specified he would be eligible to apply for work release during the jail time, which would have allowed him to continue hosting the radio show.
