The contract for a popular local radio show ended Tuesday without being renewed, and fans were wondering what’s next for ‘Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw’ (DSC).
A video posted to Twitter just after midnight Thursday holds the answer for fans.
The radio show will return to its original home at KGB.
Named after its three main hosts, Dave Rickards, Shelly Dunn, and Cookie “Chainsaw” Randolph, DSC got its start in San Diego back in 1990.
DSC aired on KFMB-FM (100.7 FM), which is owned by Tegna Inc., formerly Gannett.
The show’s contract ended July 31, KFMB told NBC 7.
The president and general manager of KFMB, Alberto Mier y Terán, made an announcement about the show on the station’s website on July 20.
“After extensive negotiations and a generous offer to the DSC team, we were unfortunately unable to reach an agreement to keep the show here at KFMB. We wish the DSC the very best with their future pursuits.”
Mier y Terán told NBC 7 they were outbid by a competitor and DSC chose to accept that offer and leave KFMB.
This comes after Dunn announced her retirement from DSC on July 13, according to DSC’s Facebook page.
They announced her last day would be July 27, but KFMB took DSC off the air early after its July 20 show when DSC agreed to the other company’s deal.
“To all the [DSC] fans, I love your support and passion,” Rickards tweeted on July 23, “But let’s not gang up on KFMB. It’s just business and they’re all good people. Important thing is that my show will be back on the air very soon.”
