Longtime 92.5 The River DJ Rita Cary was fired Tuesday, two weeks after being told by station bosses that she was talking too much between songs. Cary, who’d been with the station for a decade, the last four years as the morning host, shared the news in an emotional post on her Facebook page. “I loved working for this station with my whole heart and soul,” she wrote. “What you heard on air was the real me — the excited music geek who couldn’t believe she got to see all of these great bands, interview them and yack about them on air.” Cary said she had been off the air for two weeks while station management mulled making a change. The River bills itself as “Boston’s homegrown, independent radio station.” “This happens in broadcasting all the time. I understand that. You can have who you want,” she told us, tearfully. “I loved every single minute of my time. It was awesome.” Station GM Donald St. Saveur did not immediately return our call. Word is Cary will be replaced by veteran DJ Dana Marshall.
