The New Year is already bringing me questions about the whereabouts of PK on the Hot 95.7 morning show KKHH.

According to his site, PK has left the CBS Houston building:

I’ll start it by saying I’m not going to comment on my departure from Hot. What I will comment on is how I personally go about accepting a job/new position. I always ask myself three questions:

Will it allow me to be creative?
Can I learn and grow from the people involved?
Will it be fun?
If the answer to all three is yes, I take the job. If the answer to any is no, I check out.

Fun Fact- Pay is the last thing I ask. I moved to Houston with out asking about salary until I was in the building.

It’s a fact and maybe a fault, but it is what it is. I won’t speak any further about this situation but to say that one or all three became a no. I’m not blaming anyone and have nothing but appreciation for the time.

What’s next? To figure that out we go back, about two years to be precise. That’s when we started the PK and DK show. READ MORE

The show he references is his podcast/video show he does with his wife Denise. You can watch it live every Wednesday night at 7pm at www.PKandDK.com.

The couple promises a no holds barred, real, daring look into their relationship and life. The trailer video for the show is embedded below.

Fans of the HOT Show can still listen to Sarah Pepper and Ivan who remain with the station.

UPDATE
Brien Straw from The Bstraw & PaulyG Show on Hot 95.7 sister station SportsRadio 610 KILT disappeared the same week as PK.

According to a Dec 21, 2015 Philadelphia Business Journal article, there were "nationwide layoffs of roughly 200 employees — including several on air, sales and support staff at the six local CBS stations."

UPDATE MARCH 21, 2016
PK joins Power 96.1 Atlanta

  1. They are going after minorities. He didn't fit. I think the two Hispanic chicks who don't even speak proper English should go, but they won't get rid of them. The one with the fake boobs and pounds of makeup who has that horrible accent and who is on Fox talking about Empire, will never get fire. Why get a college degree when plastic surgery, dressing like a stripper and pounds of makeup will get you not only radio jobs, but TV jobs on crappy stations?

    1. Maybe, if you contact him on his Facebook page, he may be able to help you!

  4. Word on the street is that he was the victim of the CBS Radio layoffs occurring nationwide. Wish him the best of luck.

    1. Have you notice that they never fire the people who really need to go? I've come to the conclusion that they want people around who don't pose a threat and don't bring in good ratings. Especially, the women. I just don't get it!

    2. Well the layoffs thing sounds like it could be the deal because a Dec 21, 2015 Philadelphia Business Journal article, says "nationwide layoffs of roughly 200 employees — including several on air, sales and support staff at the six local CBS stations."

  6. The hot show is not the same, I gave it some time but find myself not even listening to it anymore. Not that it was all PK, or Sarah and Ivan isn't good, but the three clicked as a whole unit and is what made the show entertaining. Removing PK weather voluntary or forced, broke that unit making the show lacking. Same thing could of happened if Sarah left. The show is broken now, and I have to find something else to listen to on my way to work.Best of luck to you PK, Sarah Pepper and Ivan. Thank you for the laughs, sorry it came to an end.

  7. I don't buy the lay off but ok. Before I clicked the link i figured he was cut but like PK said he wont comment. (this also leads me to think it was a canning not a cutting) He was the show. He kept it moving and funny. Sarah and Ivan are.....flopping at this point. It is sad. They don't even do whatcha doing at the court house at the same times anymore. I have pulled the plug.

    1. I listen to them every morning and what you doing at the court house is still at 7:50am and stupid news is still on at 7:10. I dont know what you are talking about.

    2. When you get laid off, you are paid a severance which you forfeit/have to pay back, if you do or say anything within a year of your layoff date

  8. PK says on his web show that he has a non-compete clause, so he can't be on the air in Houston for six months or so.

    1. Seems kinda of ridiculous to enforce the non-compete if he was fired, like the article detailed above is speculating.

      Delete
    2. Why would they enforce a non-compete if they "laid him off" like the Philadelphia article speculated, the would have had to have given him a nice severance package. Anyway, he was a good DJ and I miss him on the show. Now to just get Sarah Pepper a man.

  9. In my opinion, PK was rude as he always interrupted both Sara n Ivan. He always made a point to talk over them. I can't stand that about him. He also acted as he was street... talking about " holla at yo boy" Dude!!! I'm glad he's gone an I also agree that Ivan an Sara aren't the right fit for the show... On to another station

  10. He seemed like a jerk to me

    1. Thank you!!! He loved to talk about himself and brag about himself as if he was some kind of celebrity omg I am soooo glad he is gone! Now I can listen to 95.7 in the am!

  11. There really isn't one incredible personality at CBS Houston. The women are incredibly weak on the air! It looks like they hire on plastic surgery, how much makeup you wear, hair, etc. The only who doesn't fit is the Sarah chick . I think she got hired, because she came with the other guy and for some reason they keep her around. Maybe, because she does a lot of charity for attention and they like that?

  12. First they stop "Carmen" airings in the morning and now this BUSH! They are officially the worst morning show in Houston and that says a lot considering there's "Roula and Ryan" in this city.

  13. I stopped listening because of PK, now that he is gone Im back. PK seemed rude and selfish, and the remark about his wife having a baby and personal areas being out of place was the worst. I lost interest after that.

    1. Yes, me too. I could not stand listening to PK at all. He was just annoying and totally uninteresting. I like the show with just Sarah and Ivan!

  14. I tried to listen to this station, but it is horrible. The women they have on during the midday and afternoon are horrible. Annoying voices, they talk over the lyrics and they don't speak proper English. It's sad. Radio is the communication business, so you should speak proper English. Maybe, when they are sold, they will put some good personalities on?
