PD & Morning Host Depart Miami’s Ticket
Herald Sports Media columnist Barry Jackson reports that Ticket morning co-host Marc Hochman will depart the station when his contract expires at the end of the year, while telling friends he’s heading to afternoons at Beasley’s 560 WQAM. Hochman has co-hosted WAXY’s morning show with Jonathan Zaslow since April 2012 after spending nine years producing Dan Le Batard’s afternoon show.
The impending departure of Hochman is indicated by Jackson as one of the reasons The Ticket dismissed Tod Castleberry as Program Director as he supposedly let an exclusive negotiating window in his Hochman’s contract lapse. While no public announcement of Castleberry’s departure has been made, he is no longer listed among the management contacts for the station.
