For those following the Dave Shand story, there’s not much going on. No major media source has mentioned the story. Recently Shand’s former co-host on WTKA 1050 Mike Wickett offered a few words on the situation here on For those not closely monitoring the message board I thought I’d call it out:

Sounds like a lot has happened since I’ve been gone. Dave has never been one to pull punches, especially on the air. I also know Dave understood what good radio was, and how close you sometimes needed to come to “that line”. I have no “inside info” on the situation, but I can only hope Dave and WTKA lands on its feet. Cheers from Milwaukee!! – Wickett

Wickett left WTKA a few months before Shand’s firing to join former program manager Ryan Maguire in Milwaukee at station WSSP. He currently co-hosts The Doug Russell Show weekday mornings in Brew-town. Wickett and Shand hold the distinction of having the interview with Bo Schembechler just minutes before his death.

Here’s all the posts related to the Dave Shand firing on


  1. And Josh V seems to have disappeared as well, replaced by J Raty. Any word on that?

  2. Josh gave his two week notice the day after I was fired. Maguire hired him in Milwaukee and he started there last Thursday. He is just producing for now.
