Huckleberries has learned ... that long-time news director/morning man Dick Haugen and KXLY/KVNI have parted ways. Happened at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon -- and no one's saying nothing about nothing including those who may know something. Stay tuned.
DFO: I don't know the inside skinny here. But I do know that Dick was a fixture in this community and will be missed. He was a fun color guy on the sports broadcasts. And he had an extensive knowledge of Coeur d'Alene. Can't see how the morning show will be the same without him. (Dick, if you're out there, check in and tell us what you can.)
