Popular radio DJ Mimi Campbell was dismissed from her position with Townsquare Media almost three weeks ago. Following a post by a disgruntled fan in the Facebook group Texarkana Cheers and Jeers, Campbell’s fans and friends rallied to show support.
Campbell had worked as a radio DJ for nearly 17 years when she was told that the station was going in a different direction. Listeners could hear Mimi on Power 95.9 in the mornings and Magic 93.3 in the afternoons. “I guess those corporate folks just didn’t know how much of a chameleon I can be. I can go with the flow; just tell me what needs to be done,” Campbell said in a Facebook post regarding her dismissal.
When a disgruntled fan heard the news, she took to the Facebook group, Texarkana Cheers and Jeers, to air her frustrations. Neither the disgruntled fan, nor Campbell, expected such an overwhelming response. The post generated over 300 likes, 23 shares, and more than 90 comments. Fans posted moving messages, such as; #teammimi, #bringmimiback, and “I WANT MY MIMI AND MORNING SHOW BACK.” The general consensus of the commenters was that, without Mimi, the listeners were changing the channel.
Attempts have been made to contact the management at Townsquare Media Corporate Office in Shreveport. No one was available for comment at this time.
