The cutback wave hits BOSTON, as the BOSTON HERALD's JESSICA HESLAM reports that ENTERCOM's Talk WRKO-A let Producer TYLER HENDERSON go while Sports WEEI-A Producer RENE MARCHANDO has exited after 16 years. ENTERCOM/BOSTON spokesman GEORGE REGAN told HESLAM that "They've been repositioned."
Meanwhile, across town at CBS RADIO, Classic Rock WZLX Producer JEREMY LEAHY and Oldies WODS (OLDIES 103) morning sidekick JIMMY DEL PONTE are among those let go. Alternative WBCN overnight host JUANITA moves to part-time status as the overnight position is eliminated.
And the blog SAVEWRKO.COM reports that CBS News-Talk WBZ-A laid off Assistant News Director PAUL CONNEAMEY and other unnamed staffers including sales personnel and an IT technician.
