Major job cuts at iHeart Radio


Recommended Posts

A substantial number of jobs got eliminated today at the radio behemoth including massive air talent layoffs. The carnage is so extensive that all air talent references have been removed from iHeart Radio websites.

Scripps gets nailed with a $1.13 million fine from the FCC in an investigation from the ex-Cordillera stations over tower lighting and maintenance at 10 facilities in 5 states. Cordillera also had failed to notify the FCC of its purchase of two antenna structures.

 

 

 

That'll teach them 😂

iHeart has already been through bankruptcy court. John Malone is trying to buy them but is facing stiff regulatory opposition. Frankly I don't see how he would be any worse than the jokers who own them now.

WTVN in Columbus has, IIRC, a grand total of 3 people in their news department and now has 2 sports people. 

 

They seem to air news from other markets during their top and bottom of the hours news breaks. Sometimes it'll be entirely Toledo area news or northeast Ohio.

I wonder if we will see a big shift in ratings because of the cuts?   It will be interesting to see if that happens or not.

 

 

On a side note, these cuts made me think of this... I saw this years ago..  What would happen if Clear Channel (now I-Heart) took over radio station WWV.
