Craig Thomas out at Sunny 104.5


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A longtime part of the Wilmington radio scene is off the airwaves. Craig Thomas is no longer part of the staff at Sunny 104.5.

Thomas told WWAY he was not ready to comment on his departure, but said his last day on the air was Wednesday.

Thomas joined Sunny 104.5 three years ago to team with Sheila Brothers during morning drive, according to a StarNews story. Before that, the story said, Thomas had worked at WGNI for 19 years.

In a post on Sunny 104.5's Facebook page this morning, Brothers responded to listeners who had wondered where her partner was.

"Craig is no longer with Sunrise Broadcasting," Brothers wrote. "It was a management decision. But I want to strongly point out he did nothing wrong. I've been waiting, trying to come up with something meaningful and profound, but I've got nothing eloquent to say. Just that I miss my BFF. Thank you guys for your support and I will continue on, doing the best I can to make your day a Sunny one... ~Sheila."

Station management has not yet returned a call for comment.

You're both right of course

It was a bit of a troll
And it was damned funny
What is in the water here? WWAY puts first time drunk teachers, local TV personalities and radio personalities on the front page.........

As for radio? Seldom listen to it - preferring a good CD while driving.........or sheer silence - which is my "music" of choice.

'Tater's are you


ok Vog you have the healthiest attitude here...

I will miss Craig however. I was a GNI fan for years as well. I had the opportunity to see him emcee events dating back to The Festival of Trees at the Hilton and enjoyed his work. I hope he lands something soon and local.. I feel he has added to the community through his work as a radio personality and to get a mention means he has struck a note with somebody.. Sometimes news isn't earth changing but possibly just community changing... yes? IMHO of course.

I prefer a CD or silence as

I prefer a CD or silence as well. However, I did enjoy Craig Thomas years ago when he was on WGNI.

RIp Radio

That dude was so Donjon pimp style Miami Vice back in the 80's.. Seriously... Not so much any more... But still, a nice guy... He's been around for a day.. I respect anyone like that.. around.. The radio company can go f theirselves... They are next after print news dies... Craig.. We got yo back homie..

Craig Thomas' departure

I'm with you RIp. It's sad hearing Sheila without Craig and not being able to tell him to shut his face. I hope they find a good match for her, but another Craig? No way!
Craig, I'm crying for you man. My morning bud is gone... :(
