What a shame! The fans should get a say in this...or at least an explanation. Jim Krenn has been a part of my morning routine for over 20 years. He deserves to tell his story.

I have not liked the show nearly as much since Paulson left, and then they got rid of Cris Winter and Eddie Crowe. I still listened because of Krenn. I am done with the DVE morning show now, unless they bring Jim back.



My wife got me a SONOS system for Christmas, to interface streaming audio and other digital music with my classic stereo component system. Now I can listen to any station I want across the country via radio.com, or listen to Pandora or Rhapsody and get away from CheapChannel. I will certainly avoid CheapChannel's iheartradio.com as well.

I can't help but think that Randy forced Jim out. Its a damn shame.

I've been listening to Krenn for as long as I can remember. It was shame when Paulson left, but Krenn held the morning show together. Krenn was the only reason I still tuned into DVE in the morning. Done with it, they'll end up being as stupid as all the other Pgh morning shows. Back to CDs for me..

This is like having your wife walk out th efront door after twenty years without an explanation. WTF? The radio business is totally F'd up. How could one company own so many stations in a single city? Antitrust? I'm done with ClearChannel and their sponsors... hope to hear you again, James.

I'm sure that Krenn will be back on the air soon and equally sure that whatever station gets this Pittsburgh Icon will kick the crap out of DVE's morning show. Real smart move clear channel...and goodbye DVE! J.K. you are truly a class act!!

Jim is Pittsburgh. I listen to DVE because of Jim. I am done with DVE.

Jimmy, it's a shame they took you off the air. Have been a listener since the beginning. My husband and I have switched morning stations because you were DVE. We hope that you will be on the air again soon, somewhere in Pittsburgh. We love ya!

ive been listening to dve since 1975 if jimmy doesnt come back im done with dve its supposed to be about pittsburgh clear channel sucks ass jimmy you should move to satellite

This is a damm shame! Been listening to Jimmy for as long as I can remember, he is Pittsburgh. Never really did like Randy and Val can be boring. Goodbye DVE in the morning

I think Jimmy is a great guy, down to earth, a true Pittsburgher, but I'm not surprised by the move. It seems he'd stroll into the show a couple hours late. And just wasn't in sync with the rest of the show. It seemed to me he got complacent. I honestly didn't even realize he was no longer on the show until about an hour ago. Nothing lasts forever. Plus don't worry about Jimmy yinz guys. He'll be just fine. He'll be on another show once his contract expires.

It's back to books on cd for my commute. Jimmy lured me away from them when I had to drive to work.

just another stupid move by clear channel! if jimmy wants to leave, let him do it on his own terms. i grew up listening to him and scott, i was sad to see scott leave but it was his choise, randy is good replacement( listened to him at his erie job!). the shows just not the same without ya jim. im sorry dve but i wont listen anymore. you ll just be another typical rock station. if you havent noticed clear channel, the music is all the same , its the personalitys that make you a radio leader. god bless you jimmy and thank you!!!!!!!

Jimmy,
I too was released from my job quickly and unexpectedly after 20 years. It really sucks when you don't get a chance to work things out. Try not to let it get you down too much. You're talented and I'm sure with the connections you've made over the years, you'll be able to stay busy. I'm real sorry for you, I've been a dve listener since the mid 70's. You have been a good an asset to the community, always doing your part to give back to a city that embraced you. Thank you for that. I wish you all the best, you will be missed.

I have already noticed a difference in the morning show... and it has not been an improvement. Jim helped to make the show flow. It seems very fragmented now. The continuity is gone. Last, but not least, when the position was opened up the station said that they wanted a Pittsburgh guy, someone who knows our sports & happenings, someone who would benefit the community, someone who could interact well with the staff, etc. Jim Krenn was all of the above and more. I am glad they replaced him with someone who is so dedicated that he left the show once already. WHY DID WDVE DETERMINE THAT GOING BACKWARDS IS THEIR IDEA OF GOING IN A NEW DIRECTION????
