virgin fires morning show host billie holiday

Confirmed reports are muttering around the radiosphere this afternoon that one half of Virgin Radio's breakfast show has been let go. Amanda "Billie Holiday" Dunn was fired. This news comes right after Dunn's divorce from Peter Luciano - lawyer and former member of Canadian pop band VIP.

Jay "Mad Dog" Doudelet and Dunn have worked together for more than a decade at various Toronto stations including CHFI, and during the original run of KISS 92.

In May, Virgin's sister station, Boom 97.3 let go of morning hosts, Humble Howard and Colleen Rusholme. In a weird coincidence, just today Howard wrote about being fired here.

As of this time, Billie is still on Virgin's website and it's still pumping out the Mad Dog and Billie Show. Her Twitter has not been updated since July 11th.
