CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/WICHITA VP/Market Manager TOM GLADE has been laid off due to "flat sales numbers," reports a blog in the WICHITA EAGLE's website. "We had three very good, strong growth years and then hit the wall," he told the "Have You Heard?" business blog, "because of the good ole recession coupled with the aircraft industry."
Citing CLEAR CHANNEL's 4% drop in ad sales nationwide in the first nine months of 2010, GLADE noted that "Their expectation is for more ... but it may be hard for a large company to understand individual market issues."
Although he enjoys living in WICHITA, he said a noncompete will "likely will force him to look outside of the market for work."
