I'm glad that a friend of mine directed me to this chat forum.
On this forum, someone had posted some grossly slanderous and defamatory comments regarding my tenure and departure from 102.1 The Edge and you're being provided with the facts from the source.
1. I, DJDWIGHT, DID QUIT UNDER MY OWN TERMS AND CONDITIONS WITH A GLEAMING LETTER OF REFERENCE FROM ALAN CROSS AND CORUS ENTERTAINMENT.
2. LEGAL ACTION AND LITIGATION WAS PURSUED AND DEALT WITH SWIFTLY WITH REGARDS TO THE SLANDEROUS AND DEFAMATORY COMMENTS THAT MARTIN STREEK PERPETUATED WITH REGARDS TO OUR WORKING RELATIONSHIP AND MY TENURE. THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL HAS POSTED OTHERWISE SINCE THE DATE OF SETTLEMENT IN AUGUST/05 HAS JEOPARDIZED AND COMPROMISED THE CONDITIONS OF THE SETTLEMENT THAT CLEARLY STATE \"NO PARTIES INVOLVED WITH, OR EMPLOYED BY, CORUS ENTERTAINMENT WILL ENGAGE IN ANY SLANDEROUS/DEFAMATORY/DAMAGING COMMENTS WITH REGARDS TO D.J.DWIGHT'S/DWIGHT HENNINGS EMPLOYMENT HISTORY AND STATUS.\"
FOR ANY FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT MY LAWYER, DAVID HARRIS L.L.B.
3. IT WAS, AND STILL IS, GREATLY DISAPPOINTING FOR ME TO CONTINUE TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH CERTAIN INDIVIDUAL'S LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM AND MATURITY. THOSE WHO WHICH TO PERPETUATE THESE LIES AND MISPERCEPTIONS WILL ALSO BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL ACTION.
4. THAT INDIVIDUALS CONTINUE TO POST SLANDEROUS/DEFAMATORY COMMENTS PROVIDE STRONG EVIDENCE THAT INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED CONTINUE TO BEHAVE IN BREACH OF THE CONDITIONS OF SETTLEMENT REACHED AUGUST'05 AND THAT I WILL BE PURSUING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THESE PARTIES WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
5. I WOULD ADVISE ALL WHO HAVE KNOWN ME, MY WORK, AND MY RELATIONSHIPS TO NOT SPEAK OUT OF FACT OR KNOW OR YOU WILL ALSO BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL ACTION.
6. I THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE SUPPORTED ME PROFESSIONALLY AND PERSONALLY THROUGHOUT MY 6 YEAR TENURE WITH THE EDGE AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT ME.
7. I UNDERSTAND ALL TOO WELL FROM BEING A MAJOR PLAYER IN THIS INDUSTRY FOR A LONG TIME AND KNOW THAT PEOPLE LIKE TO GOSSIP AND THAT'S FINE. HOWEVER, THERE IS A FINE LINE FROM GOSSIP TO MALICE. IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE TRUTH THEN KEEP YOU MOUTH SHUT!!!
IF THIS PROVES TO BE TOO DIFFICULT, AS IN THE CASE WITH THE INDIVIDUAL WHO POSTED COMMENTS AS PART OF THIS BOARD, I WILL BE CONTACTING THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS SITE AND PURSUING THE APPROPRIATE LEGAL ACTION. I ASSURE YOU THIS IS NOT AN EMPTY STATEMENT.

Thanks to whomever was generous to put me in the same breath as Shep.
I've never tried to be him nor ever wanted to be but was a great influence on my ear and sound shaping me into the DJ i've become.
I, too, am also curious as to who the individual is that had posted the strong support of me.
It's nice to know that there are people in this world who champion honesty and integrity over PERCEPTION AND LIES.
Keep it up.
The world needs more people like you.
