After saying the arrested talk show host would likely return today, David Henry, general manager at KLLI-FM (Live 105.3), has changed his tune. Why? Dunno. He just called Unfair Park to say "we are going to keep Russ off the air for the time being." Which means, once more, Live 105.3 FM will fill the 3 to 7 p.m. time slot with another best-of episode, as it did yesterday. "It's an ongoing situation, so we are going to keep him off the air for the time being," Henry says. "I wouldn't comment further than that." So, tomorrow maybe? "Don't know yet," Henry says. There's also no word on whether or not he's been suspended. And that, for now, is that. --Robert Wilonsky
