Barber Clipped From WPRO Lineup; DePetro In
February 7, 2007 at 9:12 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS hears that DAVE BARBER has exited the 9-11:45a slot at CITADEL Talk WPRO-A/PROVIDENCE. All mentions of BARBER, the veteran of DETROIT and FLINT Talk radio, have vanished from the WPRO website, which lists no host for the time slot.
And BARBER's departure clears the way for JOHN DEPETRO, still on the beach after being fired by WRKO-A/BOSTON, to return to the PROVIDENCE market to take over BARBER's slot effective FEBRUARY 14. Before his ill-fated WRKO stint, DEPETRO spent several years at WHJJ-A/PROVIDENCE.
Meanwhile, BARBER -- whose resume includes stints at WTRX-A, WTAC-A. WFDF-A, WWCK-A, and WEYI-TV/FLINT; MICHIGAN TALK RADIO NETWORK; and WXDX-A/DETROIT -- is now available for the next challenge. Reach him at (401) 663-3283 or DRBarber@cox.net.
