Grace Lee stays, Angelicopter fired at Magic 89.9
In a statement posted on their official Facebook account, the station admitted that Lee and Angelicopter, or Angelika Schmeing-Cruz in real life, had a misunderstanding but stressed that Cruz's overall performance was the reason she was terminated from the radio show.
Magic 89.9 also stressed that it didn't favor Lee over Cruz.
"Recently, an article came out on Pep.PH which featured an interview with former Magic 89.9 jock Angelika 'Angelicopter' Schmeing-Cruz. In the article, it was alleged that it was a misunderstanding between her and 'Good Times' jock Grace Lee that caused her termination from the station. It is true that there was a misunderstanding between the two ladies," the statement said.
"Admittedly, conflicts happen between jocks in radio shows specially in a high pressured show like 'Good Times.' However, it was NOT the reason Mrs. Schmeing Cruz was terminated. Her attention has been called several times due to internal issues. It was a matter decided after an on going assessment of her overall performance. Magic 89.9 has a culture of giving as many chances as possible provided those concerned show the capacity to improve their craft both off and on air. We're saddened that it had to come to this."
In her official Twitter account, Lee thanked her bosses for their support.
"Station didn't have to... But thank you boss RT @stationguy899: To those askingRT @Magic899 Magic's Official Statement. http://fb.me/1c83zPHIk," Lee tweeted.
She added: "Grateful for all the support from my @Magic899 family. Thank you everyone. you all made my day easier:) Mwah~"
