ALL ACCESS hears that iHEARTRADIO News-Talk WRNO/NEW ORLEANS afternoon host JOHN OSTERLIND has exited.
OSTERLIND posted on FACEBOOK WEDNESDAY afternoon, "I was called into a meeting right before the show today and was told my position has been eliminated and I no longer have a job at WRNO. It is true that the company has eliminated the local afternoon-drive host at all of their Talk stations across the country. Though I have a top-five show, and hit a ratings bonus in the book that came out last week, so this took me by surprise. If you know of any radio stations looking for a host, let me know."
Syndicated host MICHAEL BERRY, based at sister News-Talk KTRH-A/HOUSTON, is now airing in afternoon drive at WRNO.
