“We’re not really sure which way it’s going to play out,” says program director Ron Allen.
“Basically, it had kind of been a fluid situation from day one,” he says.
He took a job in Boise following that then returned here earlier this year.
Allen says Tooker’s wife is still in Boise and hasn’t found a job here yet, so they built in plenty of time for him to return home for visits, which is why he’s been off the air.
But the couple’s financial situation may keep it that way. If Tooker’s wife doesn’t get a job, he may leave.
“It’s still probably better than 50-50” that Tooker will stay, Allen says.
“He would still like . . . to be on the team.”
