CRN COMMUNICATIONS Talk WDYT-A/CHARLOTTE has dropped local programming and pulled local personalities DANNY FONTANA, BO THOMPSON and MOLLY CARROLL off the air in favor of syndicated programming.
Owner/host FONTANA, who had been hosting 7-9a ET, told the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER's MARK WASHBURN, "We are not immune to the economic situation, so we've pulled back our horns and are looking at everything ... We need to figure out how we can make our signal stronger so we can be more appealing to more advertisers. Then we'll rebudget and figure out how to come back stronger."
