Popular KSTP radio show host let go

KSTP-AM fired radio show host Tommy Mischke Friday, shortly after his weekly radio show aired.

Mischke was a radio personality with KSTP for the last 16 years.

Mischke and KSTP would not comment about why the radio host was fired, the Star Tribune reported.

Mischke confirmed his departure from KSTP on a blog on their website.

"I've been let go by the station," he wrote. "I want to thank all you listeners for your kindness to me over the years. It's been an honor to be able to hang out with you every day. Perhaps we'll meet again one day, somewhere down the line."

KSTP laid off 18 other workers Thursday, the Pioneer Press .
