Another iHEARTMEDIA downsizing move has replaced a local News-Talk morning show with GERRY VAILLANCOURT's morning news block from News-Talk WRNO/NEW ORLEANS, this time "BATON ROUGE'S MORNING NEWS" on News-Talk WJBO-A/BATON ROUGE.
According to the GREATER BATON ROUGE BUSINESS REPORT, KEVIN MEEKS and KAREN HENDERSON, co-hosts of WJBO's morning slot, were let go in favor of the regional show. MEEKS was with WJBO since 1996 and HENDERSON since 2012.
A similar move displaced the local STEVE TAYLOR and MIKE MANKIEWICZ morning show on News-Talk WBUV/BILOXI (NET NEWS 8/18).
