ALL ACCESS has learned that the budget cuts at CBS RADIO in SACRAMENTO have led to the loss of a job for AC KYMX PD BRYAN JACKSON, leaving Hot AC KZZO (NOW 100.5) PD CHAD RUFER to add those programming duties to his day.
Those cuts, which led to the departure of KZZO APD/MD/night personality HUNTER QUINN (NET NEWS 5/8), also claimed the jobs of Sports KHTK-A morning co-host KEITH BROOKS and longtime Exec. Producer LITTLE JOE PITTMAN as well as Promotions Dir. CORINNE STUBBS.
Morning co-host CARMICHAEL DAVE continues solo with midday host and KINGS network producer DAVE "DEUCE" MASON and MORGAN RAGAN co-hosting. In the 10a-3p slot, morning producer NATE GOODYEAR slides into MASON's co-host slot alongside CORY PFISTER and incumbent JASON ROSS.
BROOKS moved from afternoons at sister Top 40/Rhythmic KSFM, where he was known as "BOONDOCK," to mornings at KHTK in 2013. STUBBS joined the cluster as a sales assistant in 2013 and became Promotions Dir. that OCTOBER after stints at the crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL and ENTERCOM clusters and NBC affiliate KCRA-TV.
On TWITTER and FACEBOOK, after expressing his appreciation for his time at KHTK (where he had worked since he was 18 years old), PITTMAN joked, "I'm thinking I should golf tomorrow. Who's in?"
