Dan Taylor Exits WCBS-FM Amidst Attorney General Investigation
Entercom Classic Hits 101.1 WCBS-FM New York has parted with midday host Dan Taylor.
The New York Post reports that Taylor’s exit is tied to the New York State Attorney General’s office investigation of current and former CBS properties of workplace harassment and misconduct. Last year former producer Craig Lenti accused Taylor of using racist and anti-semitic comments which was submitted to CBS as part of a hostile workplace complaint.
Taylor has spent his entire career in the New York market beginning at WCBS-FM in the late 70s. He worked at 1050 WHN, 660 WNBC, 103.5 WYNY, and “Mix 105” WMXV before returning to WCBS-FM for fill-ins in the late 1990s. He would take over middays when Dan Daniel retired in 2002 until the station’s 2005 flip to “Jack-FM“. Upon relaunch of the station in 2007 Taylor was tabbed to host mornings, but would later move to middays upon the addition of Scott Shannon to the station in 2014.
No word yet on the station’s plans for the daypart.
