WMMS Radio Host Fired After Drunken Driving Arrest

Chad Zumock was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated following a crash in Lakewood Friday morning.

Comedian and radio personality Chad Zumock, who was charged with drunken driving after crashing his car into a tree in Lakewood on Friday, has been fired from his job at WMMS. 

The 37-year-old co-host of the Alan Cox Show on WMMS, who lives just a couple blocks away from the incident, was not injured in the early morning crash. However, he refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Cleveland.com reported that Zumock’s arrest “voided a contract he had signed with Clear Channel Communications," the parent company of the radio station.

Alan Cox announced the news over the air on Monday. 

Zumock was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, failure to control and a seatbelt violation. 

His bond was set at 10 percent of $3,000, and he was released.

Zumock was also arrested in Kent in 2008 for drunken driving, prior to joining WMMS.

Hi Tomcody: There's no doubt some Solon residents who listen to the show. That's all.
