Pete Sheppard's afternoon program on WUFC 1510 with cohost Darwin Zook has been curiously absent the past two days, with NBC Sports Radio national programming filling the void.
Now we know why.
Sheppard said he has had a mutual parting of the ways with 1510, the station he joined not long after abruptly quitting his WEEI weekend program while on the air in April.
He said he has a better opportunity coming along that he plans to announce later in the week.
Zook's status is uncertain, as is whether WUFC 1510 will continue to air local programming in the afternoon time slot.
General manager Anthony Pepe did not respond to a request for comment.
