Add CBS RADIO Adult Hits KCBS and '80s Alternative KROQ-HD2 (ROQ OF THE 80’S) PD/on-air reptile FREDDIE SNAKESKIN to the list of cuts from CBS RADIO.
SNAKESKIN, who worked at KROQ from 1980-1990 and has been with CBS since 2006, took to FACEBOOK to write, "Well, with considerable regret and sadness in my heart, it now appears it's time to change my status from 'works' at to 'worked' at KROQ-HD2 & JACK-FM. Unfortunately, yesterday the massive layoffs sweeping CBS came along and lopped my damn head off, and I now join so many of my radio colleagues among the ranks of the unemployed."
SNAKESKIN added, "I just wanted to say how much I am going to miss each and every person I worked with in the Dumpy Little Building at 5901 Venice Blvd. -- you are all truly the smartest, most professional group of radio people it has been my privilege to know, and over the years I've met thousands. But more than that I will miss all my FACEBOOK pals and loyal listeners I have gotten to know online, and I thank each and every one of you for the massive friendship and love you've all shown this particular disembodied voice on the radio."
