'Power Trip' moves on (with grace) without 'Superstar' Mike Morris


How do you publicly deal with the layoff of a beloved co-worker?

With extreme grace.

On Friday's "Power Trip Morning Show," KFAN-FM 100.3's Chris Hawkey, Cory Cove and Paul "Meat Sauce" Lambert addressed Thursday's layoff of ex-Viking "Superstar" Mike Morris, saying the transition will be difficult.

Morris, according to Hawkey, was laid off as part ofa nationwide series of cost-cutting moves at Clear Channel Communications, which own the all-sports station.

Hawkey, however, said that Morris will wake up in a few weeks and may see this as a "blessing in disguise."

Morris, he said, was a "51-year-old man in a 70-year old body" after a grueling career in professional football.

Morris played in the NFL from 1987 to 1999, including nine seasons with Minnesota.

As for the radio show, Hawkey said listeners can expect the new team to "just keep moving" and "kicking ass."
