(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- Wayne "Wankus" Lewis, KSEX.com's first hire by founder Mike Rick and the man who coined the term "porn jockey," has reached an amicable and undisclosed agreement with the station to officially end his tenure as Program Director, KSEX host and part-owner in the company.
Wankus and KSEX are again on great terms as time and perspective have smoothed the ruffled feathers and calmed the heated emotions that were on display (and on the air!) in May 2007 when Wankus' work with the station was brought to a halt.
Wankus was brought onboard by KSEX's original owner and founder Mike Rick and was instrumental in building the brand over the last six years. "Wankus is an extremely talented individual who brings a tremendous amount to whatever table he sits at," says KSEX President Jon Belinkie. "Obviously, he played a major part in making KSEX what it is today. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and remain confident that all entities can now take their respective careers to the next level without any conflicts of interest."
Belinkie added, laughing with obvious insider knowledge, "I would not be surprised to see joint Wankus/KSEX projects at some point in the not too distant future."
Wankus had similar thoughts as he released the following statement: "I will always have a strong love for KSEX as it basically was my baby from the start to current times. I put my heart and soul into it and I am relieved that my departure now doesn't leave a bad taste in my mouth anymore as current management and myself have come to a fair understanding. It's also nice to know that the foundation I helped build seems to be on it's way to a much higher level of success, something way past due for this company that for years had the potential but lacked the players who could execute it. I am about to launch a new project of my own that I've been piecing together since my departure and with the mending of ways between me and KSEX, it's something we can both reap rewards from as allies. Should KSEX need my help in any regards from consulting to production, I will be happy to lend my services. Either way, I wish them much success and take pride in my years on-air and as Program Director.
One thing is for sure, KSEX extends mutual warm wishes, gratitude and respect for Wankus' work, past, present and future.
