PHOENIX - Popular Valley radio duo Tim and Willy will no longer be accompanying drivers on their morning commute, at least not on Camel Country 108.
"They said, 'we hate to do this, but today was your last show,'" Tim Hattrick told ABC15.
Hattrick, one half of the country station team, tweeted just after 1 p.m. that Thursday was the hosts' "LAST SHOW on @KMLE108".
Hattrick and co-host Willy D. Loon have been with KMLE-FM since 2008, following an earlier stint with the station that lasted from 1993 to 1996.
KMLE-FM General Manager Tim Pohlman told ABC15 it was a tough business decision for the station, and they are grateful for Tim and Willy's contributions.
"We didn't see it coming," Loon told ABC15.
The duo are not yet sure what they'll be doing next, but they promise to stay in Phoenix and plan to stay together.
"We don't want to go anywhere," Loon said. "We want to stay here."
The men, along with their producer, Andrea Hiland, admit that they wish they would have had a "goodbye" show, but are not angry with their former boss at all.
"These things do happen," Hattrick said.
