On-air incidents

In October 2008 on-air personality Gregg Stepp quit on-the-air before station management who were planning on firing him had the chance, In his final words he said "Now I find out that there's another deal in the works with someone else and their only minutes away from handing me my walking papers, well here's your 15 second notice, Kiss my ass Cox Radio Jacksonville, and especially you Bill Hendrick and David Israel, you two empty suits will be lucky if this is the only time this happens to you and its gonna be a bright day in Jacksonville when your desks is emptied and radio is free of you, Now this shows you how much their paying attention by the way because they should have been in here by now and if they were really listening to the radio stations and knew what was going on, so thanks for nothing, rot in hell Cox Radio I am gone!" this was followed by 11 seconds of dead air then music played.[1]

It was later revealed that Stepp had already given his notice and had taken a new job in Bakersfield, CA. Management asked him to create a bit that would bring some attention to the station before announcing the return of "The Greaseman" a couple weeks later.
