Andrew Zepeda, host of the weekday drive-time show Andrew Z in the Morning on WWWM-FM 105 (Star 105), was fired Wednesday afternoon from the Cumulus Media station along with four of his on-air team including wife Michelle Zepeda.
Matt Spaulding, Cumulus Toledo general manager, declined to comment on why the popular radio show host was let go. He said the station is “exploring all options at the moment” in finding a replacement show of either local or syndicated programming.
“We haven’t been looking,” Spaulding said. “This came on suddenly. This wasn’t something planned for long in advance.”
Zepeda, 43, of Perrysburg was sentenced to 30 days in the Wood County jail and placed on probation for five years last week for charges relating to a 2010 break-in he orchestrated at the Levis Commons pizzeria he formerly owned.
