Jack Diamond Returns to DC, Leaves Florida Station; Fans Hope for Return to DC Airwaves

Will the former 107.3-FM morning host ride the airwaves again in DC?

On Friday, Diamond told fans on Facebook that he's decided to leave the Florida radio gig at 101.5-FM and return to the Washington DC area, where his family lives.

Less than a year ago WRQX 107.3-FM's Jack Diamond Show was unceremoniously yanked from the DC-area airwaves, sending shockwaves through Diamond's longtime fan base, who were left to wonder: "Why?"

After 24 years on the air, corporate honchos at Cumulus Media in Atlanta seemingly on a whim substituted the longtime hometown show for a syndicated show out of Atlanta. Diamond fans quickly made it clear they would have nothing to do with the new show, openly dissing the program on social media. (The latest ratings for WRQX can be found here.)

Diamond kept in touch with his fans on his Facebook page and on Twitter, sharing photos of his travels, and later, news that he had signed on to host a radio show in Florida.

On Friday, Diamond told fans on Facebook that he's decided to leave the Florida radio gig at 101.5-FM and return to the Washington DC area, where his family lives.

Speculation immediately grew by fans that perhaps he might be returning to the DC airwaves, but Diamond plays his cards close to the vest. Dave TV recently mused that Diamond might be making a DC comeback, on WASH-FM.

Diamond, who plays in a band, did say that he might gather up some friends to play some music soon. His radio fans? They'll have to stay tuned.

Jack, welcome back to DC. I don't know how "The Bert Show" gets away with it - replaying segments during the same day and on following days. I only listen because I haven't found anything I'd rather listen to, although sometimes I resort to WTOP.

I listened to 107.3 from 5am until getting to work at 9 everyday except for those days that Jack was on vacation or off. He made the show fun and interesting. Odd to say I was always anxious for the song to be done and the team back in front of the mike. What can I say.....Jack, Jack, Jack! Love YOUR show, babe!

I hope Jack comes back to 107.3 It is quite boring now in the morning with just the same music over and over again.
