Rodgers fired moments after show ended

Lee Rodgers has written a letter to listeners to clear the air about his sudden departure from KSFO 560 on Thursday: “It was forced upon me with no notice,” he says.

Rodgers told Joe Garofoli of the Chronicle and SFGate that Citadel is trying to get out of paying him for the last 4 1/2 months of his contract, and AFTRA is going to bat for him.

Garofoli also reports:

Rodgers, who has been doing his program from Arizona for the past seven years, says it is unlikely he will return to broadcasting after more than 50 years in the business. (Photo credit: Chronicle file, Kim Komenich)
