The layoffs today at ESPN claimed the job of Sports KSPN-A (ESPN LA 710AM)/LOS ANGELES Sr. Dir./PD MIKE THOMPSON. The PD position at the station has been eliminated in the cutbacks.
In a note to friends in the industry, THOMPSON said, “It’s been a wonderful 12 years with the WALT DISNEY COMPANY! I am honored to have worked alongside talented broadcasters to build a record ratings winner among contemporary males never seen before in the format and AM Radio in the #2 market. Just like the great folks I partnered with at THE TICKET in DALLAS and WCNN in ATLANTA, together we have built a powerful P1/TSL machine built on the personalities not the topic. Terrific feeling to have a tree of programming executives and talent that continue the legacy of the folks that mentored me at WMCA, NBC RADIO, WCAU, WABC. Stay tuned – exciting things straight ahead.”
