I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to JEFF for his creativity and leadership for the stations in this cluster and throughout the WASHINGTON-BALTIMORE TRADING AREA. During his time here, JEFF has helped to create a lot of great radio and to motivate many into being better broadcasters.
"I have also accepted TOD CASTLEBERRY’s resignation. TOD has been instrumentally involved with Sports Radio from its inception and we appreciate his efforts in the innovation of the format."
WYATT told ALL ACCESS, "I sincerely appreciate all Sr. VP/Product MARC CHASE, ALENE GREVEY and CC have done for me and allowed me to do. I consider them friends and it was a sweet parting. I just feel opportunity knockin'... and i gotta be ready. This move frees me up at a time when circumstances allow it.
