What happened to Frosty, the show host of 'The Frosty, Heidi & Frank Show'?

"Yes it is true. Sadly, management at KLOS has terminated me and I am no longer on the show. It is now the Heidi & Frank Show, and I hope you will continue to give them your support. Don't blame them, they had no say in this," Frosty explained in a new Facebook post.

Frosty was furloughed in March 2020.

News about Frosty's potential departure first got out on Friday, March 20, when Heidi and Frank announced live on air that he was taking an indefinite leave from the show. 

According to Los Angeles Daily News, the management had to make up for the loss in advertising revenue caused by the rapid spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

"Apparently management's budget-cutting axe swinging also cut several others and perhaps I should feel honored to be in the same company of executed LA radio legends Gary, JD, Jonesy, and Frazier on KLOS. Anthony was also cut from the morning show," he wrote. 

Angered fans have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment. 

"Damn I’m sad they let go of frosty from the Frosty Heidi and Frank show on KLOS do better 95.5," wrote a person. 

"Damn. @955KLOS f---ed up letting Frosty go! Now it's back to garbage," opined someone else. 

However, not everyone was saddened by the latest developments. A loyal listener of the show claimed that they strongly prefer the new version anyway. 

"Frosty was garbage I use to listen to them on talk radio.. Heidi and Frank is where its at," tweeted the person.
