It’s about damn time.
The braintrust at Star 101.5 have finally decided that the miserable morning show hosted by John Moug and Angie Parker was DOA and have replaced that morning zoo with longtime KPLZ personalities Curt Kruse and Jen Pirak.

Moug and Angie, a duo straight out of Boise, premiered on KPLZ in January 2022. It floundered for 18 months. (GO LOCAL, Lotus.)
This may also be a lesson for stations voice-tracking program hosts from out-of-town.
