Radio DJ Outed for Impersonating Military Service Personnel




A Springfield, MO radio station has fired its program director/ afternoon DJ for allegedly lying about serving in the military.

KSPW Power 96.5, which is owned by Journal Broadcast Group, posted the following statement online Wednesday about Program Director/DJ Simon Nytes:

“We are disappointed that our employee misrepresented himself as someone who had served in the military. It is unacceptable behavior.”

According to Nytes’ Facebook page, he’d been with Power 96.5 since October 2007, but worked for Journal Broadcast since the mid-1990’s.

“Journal Broadcast Group is committed to ethical relationships with our listeners, clients and community,” the online post reads. “Specifically regarding the unacceptable behavior, that employee has been terminated. Finally, we value and are grateful for the service of our military personnel across all branches, and have the utmost respect for the sacrifices made by so many of our military personnel and their families.”


Nytes was Power 96.5’s afternoon DJ, and also served as program director. His biography has since been removed from Power 96.5’s website and his Twitter account has also been deactivated.
