Maxwell Schaeffer and Amy Sweet have departed morning drive at 1040 WHO in Des Moines.

The pair began hosting the daypart at the iHeartMedia station in 2021 after the retirement of longtime host Van Harden.

“Our sincere appreciation goes out to every listener who has tuned in to WHO over the years, making it possible for us to build upon the rich tradition of excellent programming that sets us apart from other stations,” Sweet wrote in a social media post announcing her departure, according to Radio Insight.

“We have truly enjoyed connecting with each one of you through various initiatives designed to foster deeper connections within our beloved community. As we move forward into unknown territories, we are filled with anticipation and hope for what lies ahead!”

Schaeffer came to the outlet in 2018 after previously working in music radio for a classic hits station in the Iowa capital. He is a member of the Iowa Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to his morning show on 1040 WHO, Schaeffer also was hosting afternoons at sister station 100.3 The Bus.

Sweet worked alongside Schaeffer in morning drive at 93.3 KIOA for 12 years, until departing in 2020.

Midday host Jeff Angelo helmed the station’s morning show on Monday.
