Whitney Young leaves WPXY radio citing equal pay dispute

Whitney Young, a former morning radio show host, announced on social media she was leaving WPXY-FM radio Thursday citing an equal pay dispute.

Young, who teamed with Corey James from 5:30 to 10 a.m. weekdays to host #TeamPXY, said, "I choose to leave my position as morning show host, because my male co-host's salary was nearly double my own, and I was unable to negotiate a raise that would reduce the pay disparity."

She continued, "This inequality is in conflict with my most deeply held beliefs."

Attempts to reach both Young and station management were not immediately successful.
