Ross Brittain Exiting WOGL Philadelphia
While Scott Shannon has signed a contract extension with CBS Radio to remain in mornings at WCBS-FM New York, his original “Z100” co-host is leaving the company.
Ross Brittain, who has led the “Breakfast Club” on Classic Hits 98.1 WOGL Philadelphia since 2004, will leave the station after his show on Friday, July 31. In addition to Z100 and WOGL, Brittain also hosted mornings at WKSS Hartford, WZGO/WTRK/WEGX Philadelphia, WZGC Atlanta, and WABC New York in the waning days of its music format.
Also leaving WOGL will be General Manager Jim Loftus. Loftus also joined WOGL in 2004 after previously serving as Chief Operating Officer at Shamrock Communications. Another longtime WOGL veteran, night host Bob Charger was let go earlier this month as part of CBS Radio’s massive layoffs.
