As we reported earlier in the week, Mark Allen, known to 92.3 NOW listeners as “Tic Tak,” left the station.
Allen tells FishbowlNY that it was his decision to leave, as he begins his next path in radio.
“About a month ago, I decided to pursue my dreams of programming great radio,” Allen says.
So, after his Friday afternoon shift, Allen exited stage left. But, not before showering praise on the station and CBS Radio.
“Doing afternoons at 92.3 NOW (WXRK) was like a dream, and I cannot speak higher about the people at CBS Radio,” Allen admits. “I highly recommend CBS Radio as a great place to work.”
Among those Allen singles out are Dan Mason (CEO, CBS Radio) and Greg Strassel (Senior VP of Programming), along with the entire staff at NOW.
Allen, 40, had been with NOW since March 2009.
“Now it is time for me to go on a road trip and listen to the radio stations near you because I am a radio geek,” Allen says.
