WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - After spending the past 25 years entertaining the airwaves of South Florida, 97.9 WRMF Morning Show host Jennifer Ross was fired.

Ross still has a year and a half left on her contract, and will remain on the payroll for another year. A source believes Ross' was making upwards of $200,000 a year making her one of the highest paid local radio personalities.

Her replacement has already been announced -- Detroit's Chad Mitchell. Apparently, he and Danny Czekalinski, Ross' once co-host, have been friends for awhile.

Deena Lang will now be the woman balancing out the added testosterone.

WRMF has posted the announcement in a podcast on their Web site.
