Baron's WGST/Atlanta Fill-In Cancelled
July 5, 2006 at 6:09 AM (PT)
JIMMY BARON didn't end up doing fill-in for KIM PETERSON on CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WGST-A/ATLANTA after all. BARON, the former co-host at crosstown SUSQUEHANNA (now CUMULUS) Alternative WNNX (99X), was scheduled to fill in for the KIMMER JULY 3-7 but PD RANDALL BLOOMQUIST cancelled the engagement before it started after BARON made joking comments about PETERSON's listeners on his MYSPACE blog. BARON's blog now says that the remarks ran afoul of the WGST sales staff, prompting the cancellation. Reach JIMMY at email@example.com.
Meanwhile, veteran talker JON-DAVID WELLS is stepping in to fill in for the KIMMER MONDAY through THURSDAY and also filled in for DARRELL ANKARLO on CUMULUS Talk KLIF-A/DALLAS on MONDAY and TUESDAY. Reach J-D at firstname.lastname@example.org.
