A big shakeup over at The New Bull @ 100.3 KILT. Corey Foley, who replaced the Hudson and Harrigan institution at the CBS owned station, is out.

"Houston is amazing as are the fabulous folks that live here," Foley told mikemcguff.com. "I feel blessed to have had this awesome opportunity and look forward to my next adventure. However, the Lone Star State will always hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for all of the love & support."

Her morning show partner Greg Thunder remains as the solo host. Other morning host, Cowboy Dave, moves to the 7pm to midnight slot. That puts night guy Zakk United in the afternoon slot vacated by Keola Lui-Kwan.

KILT's listeners think this is bull and are taking to the station's Facebook page in protest. The station responded to a commenter with the following:

Greg is still here in the mornings, Cowboy Dave got promoted and is now on from 7-Midnight every night with The Bull After Dark and Corey is no longer with the station and we wish her the best.

Foley arrived at KILT with Thunder in November 2010.

Before that Foley handled morning drive at 95.7 KBWF (The Wolf) San Francisco. She was a veteran of The Dave Ryan Show at 101.3 KDWB Minneapolis, Kiss 105.3 in Gainesville and Wild 94.1 in Tampa. She is a gradate of the University of Florida.
