The owner of KSFO Radio fired morning show host Melanie Morgan on Monday.

Citadel Broadcasting decided not to renew Morgan's contract.

The 14-year KSFO veteran blames cost-cutting. Citadel bought KSFO and the rest of the ABC Radio group back in 2006.

Morgan is well-known from her 24 years in Bay Area radio, having organized protests over a variety of causes, most recently in support of U.S. forces in Iraq and the Marine recruiting office in Berkeley.
