Two No Longer Feel The Love At WGVZ

CITADEL Oldies WGVZ (Love 105)/MINNEAPOLIS has cut two staffers, reports THE PIONEER PRESS. Pres./GM MARC KALMAN said LOVE 105 DJs SARAH JONES-LARSON and MATT MARTINDALE were victims of budget cuts.
"We're no different than the world we live in and the world we live in is in hard economic times," said KALMAN. "And that makes advertising very difficult to sell."
JONES-LARSON, who's been with LOVE 105 for six months and a local radio presence for two decades, said she's going to miss hearing from her listeners.
"It's a drag because I loved working at LOVE and I just really enjoyed the show there," she said. "I got some great e-mails at work from listeners. That was a wonderful way to connect with people and I don't have that anymore."
