Valerie Kattz- a former host of 107.1 the monkey was recently laid off and it’s going to be a pretty big devastation to my ears not to hear her voice on the station anymore. 

And I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. 

Valeries heart lies in radio and giving back to her community. Here is an excerpt from her public facebook post announcing her lay off with Alpha Media. 

From Valerie Kattz Facebook-

“Please bare with me a moment as this is a hard post to write. After 26 years in Radio I experienced my first layoff due to company cutbacks. There’s a saying in this business that “you’re not really in Radio until you’ve been let go.” So I guess after all these years I’m “officially” in Radio. Over the years, I have been fortunate to work with some of the most amazing and talented people in some of the best cities I could ever imagine living in from Palm Springs to Los Angeles to the Gulf Coast. I want to thank everyone who has given me opportunities, encouragement and mentorship through the years. Most of all I want to thank EVERYONE of my listeners who tuned in while I was on air. You have many choices of who you can listen to and still some of you chose me. For that I am forever grateful. I’m proud to have had the opportunity to have a positive impact on the community through charities I’ve been involved with. Being on the radio is fun but for me the most important use of having a voice in the community has been to use that as an outlet to get involved and help where I can. To my Radio Co-Host, James Steele, working with you has been incredible! You became more than a co-worker you became family. To my talented and professional co-workers at Alpha Media, you all made going to work each day a pleasure and I will miss seeing your faces on a daily basis. While this is a personal heartbreak for me I am being positive and looking forward to the new opportunities that await me.... I am, after all, a “Kattz” and I will land on my feet. XO”

287 people so far reacted to this and it has over 180 comments. People are sad to see her go. 

I ask that Alpha media reconsider their decision to lay off Valerie. Even if this petition doesn’t get her her place with the station back- it will at least show her how many people support her. 

Radio- podcast- anchor- whatever you do girl, we support you- we love you- and we will forever stand beside you. 

May anyone who signs this be formally accepted into- Kattz-Krew 

you will land on your feet Valerie!
