UNIVISION Talk WRTO-A (LA TREMENDA)/CHICAGO, which will be affiliating with its parent company's new UNIVISION AMERICA national talk network, has let five local hosts and two board operators go, reports TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER.
Among the casualties of THURSDAY's cuts are morning host JAVIER SALAS, morning contributor IRMA CAMPUZANO, afternoon host JORGE SALAZAR, evening host FERNANDO OLVERA, and Sports Dir. GOYO VILLANUEVA. The five were asked to stay on the air through JUNE 15th, although the network will not launch until JULY 4th. FEDER reports that sources say the station will broker time in the two weeks between the end of the local shows and beginning of the network programming.
