WINNIPEG — 99.1 Fresh FM has let go of morning show host Matt Sutton.
The Australian import joined the Corus Entertainment station in February 2013 alongside former co-host Jennifer David. Until Thursday, he had been one half of the morning duo with Sarah Christie.
“Extremely sad to announce that this morn was the last show on @991FreshFM. Thank you for welcoming me & embracing me Wpg. I’m deeply shocked,” Sutton tweeted.
General manager Scott Armstrong declined to comment when reached by e-mail.
In the fall radio ratings released in November, Fresh FM recorded a 2.2 share in the 12+ demographic, as released by Numeris.
