The answer is yes, we really do get fired as much as you've heard. Radio people get fired because formats change, because ratings go down, because radio stations get sold, because of budget cuts, because of vendettas, because some drink too much and don't show up for work, because some drink too much and do show up for work, and because morals clauses in contracts are sometimes broken. Occasionally, we make our own rules as well. That's why DJ's get fired.
