  1. I first heard part of this on the air, when an anchor gave a salute to Peter Casey, but didn’t mention why he left.

    Until I came to Radio Insight.com, I had assumed that Casey was going to stay with the new Enetrcom and was being transferred elsewhere (come to think of it, he’d make a great news director for one of the all-news stations Entercom just bought in the acquisition of the CBS Radio stations).
