Big Tigger Fired On His Birthday
WPGC's Morning Show with Big Tigger and Free is no more. Yesterday (December 22), Tigger confirmed reports that the he and the Washington, DC station had agreed to part ways via his Twitter account.
Tigger started with WPGC nearly 20 years ago as an intern, and worked his way through the ranks. As one of the more popular radio and television personalities, Tigger will surely be missed in the DMV area. In a memo, WPGC's New Program Director, Jason Kidd, wrote:
"I want to let you know that Tigger will no longer be hosting mornings on WPGC. Tigger has been a huge part of WPGC over the years. He started as an intern at PGC back in 1993 and eventually moved into nights in 1996. He came back later in the 2000s for afternoons and then, most recently, mornings. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Tigger will surely land on his feet, and most likely find his way back to television. With MTV bringing back Yo! MTV Raps, it only seems fitting for BET to counter and bring back Rap City: The Basement. Guess we'll have to wait and see, but for now, we just have moments like below to reflect on.
