December 30, 2005 at 7:31 AM (PT)
Shocker: CBS RADIO Talk KDKA-A/PITTSBURGH has fired longtime midday host MIKE PINTEK, evening hosts MIKE ROMIGH and PAUL ALEXANDER, and reporter KYLE ANTHONY in a move that took the market by surprise.
Sister CBS O&O KDKA-TV reporter MARTY GRIFFIN, who has served as a fill-in on the radio station, is taking over as PINTEK's replacement effective MONDAY (1/2) with "THE REAL DEAL: INSIDE WITH MARTY GRIFFIN." ALEXANDER's show will continue as the "IC LIGHT SPORTS TALK" show, with Promotions Dir. and weekender JEFF HATHHORN and ROB PRATTE hosting for now.
