ANOTHER ROUND OF CC CUTS?
Another round of cuts is slowly emerging from Clear Channel. This time the aim is morning talent. Over the last week, Don Hall from KZSN Wichita, Craig Cornett from KSD-FM St. Louis, Melissa Foreman with WLIT Chicago, Jeff and Jer with MY-94 San Diego and others. Now Valentine will do mornings for WLIT from Loa Angeles. This isn't making headline news like last January and April's demise of 2200 positions from the ranks of Clear Channel. Morning shows either perform or they get replaced and in this economy and with that company, a little more to the bottom line. I am surmising that this will continue and marginal performing morning shows making large dollars will be relieved of their duties.
