Read Uncle Luke's comments on talking to DJ Laz about quitting Power 96.

UPDATE: Beasley Broadcast Group, Power 96's parent company just released a statement regarding Laz's departure.

"Effective today, DJ LAZ, who has been with the station for 22 years, has decided to move on and explore other professional opportunities."

The rumors are in fact true, DJ Laz is no longer the voice of Power 96.

Original Post:

Since the 1980s, Lazaro Mendez has been a Miami radio staple. He's one of the few on-air personalities in the business who has managed to stay in one market their entire radio career. But last night, however, the unthinkable happened.

DJ Laz confirmed via Twitter that he is no longer a member of "Miami's Party Station," Power 96.

"Rumors are true, I am no longer with Power 96," Mendez tweeted. "I wish them all the best. And to my coworkers and friends, thank you for everything."



However, at least one Twitter user is suggesting that the announcement may be an elaborate hoax.

"Is this a late April fools joke?" asked Twitter subscriber @civicex2g. "You have been on 96.5 forever!"

See, Power 96 has a long history of fooling its listeners on, or around, April Fools' Day. Be it format changes, technological advances, you name it, Power 96 has tricked the Magic City into believing entirely farcical claims.

But as for Laz leaving, please say it ain't so, WPOW.

We'll try to get Mendez on the horn. Keep it locked to Crossfade for any developments in the story.
