CBS RADIO Hot AC WBZZ (STAR 100.7)/PITTSBURGH morning star JR RANDALL is exiting after 14 years with the station.
The station and JR "came to a mutual decision" not to renew his contract, SVP/Market Mgr. MICHAEL YOUNG told THE PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. "He's leaving as a friend of the radio station; we've left the door open and could be using him [elsewhere in the market]."
"Clearly, after 14 years with CBS, I have totally enjoyed it," said JR, whose last full shift was YESTERDAY (1/12). "They obviously have to do what's right with STAR, and I have to do what is right for me. The bottom line is, 14 years at any one place is an unbelievable length of time in this business. I have made some wonderful friends at CBS."
