Of course this could be a stunt. The station is promoting a community protest on the air. reports that neither the co-hosts or executives are really sure what's going on. Thursday, after co-host Brian Hedrick read the e-mail on the air, and started taking calls, the show ended abruptly.

Wood (pictured here) said he became aware of the situation during the show and through phone calls. He tells he's in Los Angeles filming the TBS show "Sullivan & Son," tells, "the possible end of the show could have something to do with his travel schedule." He spent three months in LA working on the production of the show and another two months on a promotional tour, but he had been working on his radio show remotely. quotes Ops Manager Kori White who says, "No official decision has been made about the future of the morning show by Cox Radio. "The incident could have been a misunderstanding and hopes to talk to the program director at 95.7 as well as the hosts to see where everyone stands on the situation. I understand they could be upset and that they might need to take a little time."
