The slot, of course, was once temporarily filled by former Louisville KY promotions director and radio personality Todd Kelly Smith, who was recently arrested on fraud charges in connection with the operation of his self-titled "Todd Kelly Foundation" ALS charity in that market. We're guessing the Q92 folks will do some more background checking this time.
