Brett Harris may not return to B98-FM

WICHITA — Brett Harris is off the air at B98-FM at least for now but possibly permanently.

"We've been working very, very, very hard to provide Brett a new contract at his request," says Tom Glade, Clear Channel Radio vice president and market manager.

"To this point, he hasn't signed it."

In August, Have You Heard? reported Harris was considering other options.

But Glade clearly is tired of waiting.

"We have determined that due to so many things, we're just not going to let him back on the air until he signs a contact."

Glade says he's still open to Harris staying, but he has to act fast. Glade has started a nationwide search for Harris' replacement.

"What Tom Glade says is true, and so that's that," Harris says.

He won't discuss whether he's working to start a new station, which is one of the options he considered this summer.

"I have no comment at all."
