January 5, 2007 at 2:54 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM Top 40/Rhythmic WNVZ (Z104)/NORFOLK went jockless on WEDNESDAY (NET NEWS 1/3) after contract negotiations with THE MORNING ZOO broke down, and today PD MICHAEL BRYAN posted a message on the station's website that said, "I wanted to take a minute to reach out to you regarding the status of our contract negotiations with the Z MORNING ZOO. First, let me personally apologize that we've had to make changes that really affect your day. I understand that you're in the habit of waking up with THE ZOO and hearing our other personalities at specific times as well. It wasn't our plan to get you out of your routine."
BRYAN goes on to say the station is close to a deal with the show and that an announcement will be made MONDAY (1/8). "Our deadline from corporate headquarters is 7a on MONDAY morning," BRYAN said. "It's either a done deal, or we'll have to move on to search for another show."
