Angelicopter Fired from Magic 89.9 Because of Grace Lee?
March 8, 2012 by admin
Angelicopter was fired from Magic 89.9 because of “seniority.” This was according to Mo Twister, host of the radio station’s “Good Times with Mo”, on its February 16 episode.
There were reports that Angelika Schmeing-Cruz, otherwise known as “Angelicopter,” gets into a fight with her Magic 89.9 colleague Grace Lee, who is now better known as the President’s girlfriend. The latter is Mo Twister’s previous co-host on his morning radio program alongside Mojo Jojo who is now taking a break.
Mo’s new co-host, DJ Suzy, during the said episode of Good Times with Mo asked him the intriguing question: “Grace said if Chopper doesn’t get fired she’ll never come back?
“Did we ever say that on the show yet or no?” he asked.
Suzy replied, “I don’t think so. Well, now you did.”
Mo continued, “I think that generally is what happened.
“Okay, so there was a thing where, ‘I can’t work with her so one of us has to go.’ And then collectively, a decision was made to retain Grace because she’s seniority and things like that,” the New York-based DJ added.
Meanwhile, Magic 89.9 has released a statement refuting reports that their former disc jockey Angelika Schmeing-Cruz a.k.a. Angelicopter, was terminated because of co-dj Grace Lee.
This was clarified by the station on its official Facebook page, reiterating that Angelicopter was not dismissed because of Grace’s wishes.
But Angelicopter says otherwise. In her numerous interviews, Cruz claims she was dismissed from her Good Times radio program because Grace doesn’t want to work with her anymore because of a “petty misunderstanding.”
“May miscommunication kasi nagkasabay kami nag invite ng guests sa show. As you see, hindi nga big deal. Unfortunately she decided that she can no longer work with me on the show,” she said.
“Due to seniority I was pulled out of the program. I understand the decision made by management as sad as it is and I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Mo Twister & Grace Lee,” she added.
Magic 89.9 admitted that there was indeed a misunderstanding between the two DJs but reiterated that Angelicopter got the boot because of her performance.
“It is true that there was a misunderstanding between the two ladies. However, it was NOT the reason Mrs. Schmeing-Cruz was terminated,” the station said.
Magic 89.9 said Cruz attention has been called several times due to internal issues, which prompted them for her exit.
“It was a matter decided after an ongoing 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,” the station added.
Grace Lee, on the other hand, pointed out that this incident happened before she met the President in contrast to Angelicopter’s claim that she’s “power tripping” because of her highly-publicized lovelife.
“Ang pinakaayaw ko sa sinabi niya is that ginawa ko ‘yon dahil I feel powerful. This happened even before I met the president. I had not gone out on a single date with him. It has nothing to do with that,” Lee said.
Grace Lee expressed her gratitude to Magic 89.9 for setting the record straight.
