Give us back The Morning Rush crew

This petition had 424 supporters

The Morning Rush show, on 92.5 Kiss FM in Toledo, Ohio, was abruptly cancelled, and two of the crew members were terminated.  The station is owned by iHeart Media, who intends to convert its listeners to a syndicated show out of Detroit, Mi.

Unlike other local morning shows, the crew of TMR was truly involved within its local community.  They were advocates for shelter adoption.  They hosted Trunk or Treat.  They strongly advocated for mental health awareness.  They actively supported our local LGBTQ community.  For the past few years, they kicked off our local LGBTQ Pride Festival, which has over 10,000+ attendees annually (nothing minor).  Additionally, many local businesses have grown and profited, thanks to the support of TMR's crew.

We listeners are disappointed in iHeart Media's decision to abandon it's dedication to our community, and it's subgroups.  As a result, many hundreds of its listeners have vowed to boycott iHeart.  We are not interested in iHeart's syndicated non-community focused replacement.  We Toledoans, and surrounding areas, take great pride in what we have.  We want TMR back.  We want Eric Chase, Demetrius Nicodemus, IShante, and Meaghan Mick back together again.
