People Moves 6/25: A Couple Of Boston Exits
Program Director/afternoon host Chris Malone has departed iHeartMedia Urban AC “The New 97.7” WKAF Brockton/Boston.
Malone joined the then-Entercom owned station upon its launch in January 2017. He has previously programmed 96.9 WBZJ Raleigh and 88.5 WQOX Memphis and served as APD of “Snap 94.1” WSNA Memphis and 97.1 WQMG Greensboro.
Morning traffic reporter Hank Morse has exited Beasley Media Classic Hits 105.7 WROR Boston.
Morse has been part of the Loren & Wally Show since 1999 and has also served as a news anchor/host at Talk 96.9 WTKK and did traffic reports for 17 years at Country 102.5 WKLB during his time with Greater Media and later Beasley Boston. Is a bigger change in mornings at WROR forthcoming?
Hi friends! Yesterday was my last day on the Loren and Wally Show on 105.7 WROR. They have decided to go in a different direction. I want to thank Greater Media and Beasley Media for 20+ great years! I had a terrific run and I am grateful! Looking for a new opportunity! pic.twitter.com/nKaIUWmbhu

Cumulus Alternative 104.5 KFOG San Francisco has revamped its on-air lineup.
