Why isn't Astros' Alyson Footer on 1560 The Game anymore?

Dustin wrote in asking where is Houston Astros reporter Alyson Footer on 1560 The Game KGOW?

Why isn't Alyson Footer on with John and Lance anymore? At first I thought it was b/c she took a position with the Astros but then she was on with Sean and John for a while. She threw a tweet out the other day saying happy b-day to 1560 "even though you voted me off the island". What happened there???? Thanks!

Here is what 1560 The Game program director Chance McClain told me over email:

We love, love, love Footer. When her job switched from working for to working for Astros we thought it would be best to not put her in a position of having to give tough and critical opinions of her direct employer. We still have a weekly paid Astros guy in the morning. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
