Dave Smith out at THE GAME (Updated)

UPDATE From Pamplin's "The Outlook"-

"Big changes at KXTG "The Game" (750 AM): Midday host Dave Smith is out, and program director Brian Jennings has been moved to a position as senior advisor. "Just decided to move in a different direction," says Bob Proffitt, president and CEO of Alpha Broadcasting. Smith lasted only six months, hardly long enough to bill himself as "The Hawk."
Bernard Bokenyi will fill his noon-to-3 p.m. slot on an interim basis and Chad "The Body" Doing will take over Smith’s duties as host of the "Fifth Quarter" Trail Blazers post-game program. Proffitt says it is "to be determined" what will be done with the noon-to-3 p.m. slot, adding he is leaning toward procuring a local host but that using a national show is possible. "It depends," Proffitt says. "We’re looking at a bunch of options." Scott Mahalick — who had served as program director at several Alpha-owned stations in the Portland area — has been promoted to program direction of all stations and will assume Jennings’ role at "The Game.""

On Today's Bald Faced Truth, John Canzano announced that Dave Smith is gone.

"Big things" will be happening, and Dave Smith show is no longer. He "went back to LA".

On Twitter, Dave's producer/co-host Aaron Barret said,

"I Wish the absolute best to . Super talented, genuinely nice, real pro. Most fun I've had in radio was working with him. Easy."

He also Tweeted,

"All I will say is that he's no longer with the station."

The Game's website now shows Bernard Bokenyi as the host from 12-3PM.

Dave Smith joined 750 AM the Game in June. At the time he said,

"I am very excited to bring DAVE SMITH to the PACIFIC NORTHWEST," said ALPHA Dir./Talk Programming BRIAN JENNINGS. "In addition to his great sports background at major local stations in L.A., he hosted a national show for SPORTING NEWS. DAVE is a huge NBA and PAC-12 fan and will be a terrific addition to our local sports commitment. He will also play a role in our 'Game Day, All Day' OREGON Football broadcasts this fall and will host the 5th quarter following each BLAZER game."
