CUMULUS MEDIA has closed the SOUTH BAY bureau at News KGO-A/SAN FRANCISCO, reports the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. The move to close the bureau in SAN JOSE was made abruptly a week ago FRIDAY (6/26) and resulted in the departures of JENNIFER HODGES and JEANNE LYNCH.
“Once again, CUMULUS MEDIA has demonstrated its lack of support for local BAY AREA communities,” said SAG-AFTRA SAN FRANCISCO-NORTHERN CALIFORNIA Local Executive Dir. LEN EGERT. “We believe that there is a connection between good local jobs and good local media, and our communities would be better served if CUMULUS invested more in its local employees.”
