CBS Cuts Adding Up
While attention was made to Clear Channel’s wide-scale layoffs on December 6, it seems that CBS has quietly been making staff cuts as well.
A few more cuts have become public since our first report:
Dallas – AC “103.7 Lite-FM” KVIL morning team Gene & Julie did not have their contracts renewed. Middayer Tony Zazza replaces them.
New York – WCBS-FM APD Lenny Bloch departs. His voicetracked overnight shift was replaced with a live shift hosted by Dave Stewart, formerly of 95.5 WPLJ.
Original List 12/17:
Since December 6 the following on-air talent have been confirmed to be let go from CBS owned stations.
Atlanta – Morning hosts Frank Ski and Wanda Smith are leaving Urban “V103” WVEE after being unable to come to terms on a contract renewal.
