12/18: Yogi leaving Viva 105.7
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Yogi (Juan Tapia), one half of the Viva 105.7 morning team, is leaving the station at the end of the week. His attorney Jamie Hernan said he just “needed a change in environment.”
Yogi & Panda filed a civil lawsuit against the Regular Guys and their employer Clear Channel for invasion of privacy in October after Larry Wachs of 96rock’s the Regular Guys taped their conversation in a public restroom and aired it. But they dropped the lawsuit to go after Wachs in criminal court, a case that is still pending. The Regular Guys were subsequently fired.
They’d been together four or five years, including time in Los Angeles. But they have now decided t o go their separate ways, Hernan said. “Yogi isn’t comfortable being there but Panda is sticking it out,” Hernan said. Yogi is going to a Dallas Hispanic station, he added. I’m going to try to talk to Yogi later today.
