July 15, 2011 at 12:28 PM (PT)
LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Alternative KBZT (FM 94/9)/SAN DIEGO PD GARETT MICHAELS returns on-air to host PM drive replacing TOMMY HOUGH, following the layoffs reported earlier in the week (NET NEWS 7/13).
In addition, FM 94/9 BIG SONIC CHILL's AMANDA THORNE, who hosted the SUNDAY-FRIDAY evening program from 9p-2a, has exited. Reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, MICHAELS posted the following FACEBOOK message on JULY 14th about the changes, "For the sake of clarification and accuracy, 14 people were laid off from the SAN DIEGO LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA stations yesterday. All 3 stations in our group and all departments within those stations were affected by these layoffs. The layoffs were economically driven and very difficult. Honestly, it was a brutal day on many levels for all of us. TOMMY, AMANDA and SIENNA were among the 14 people who were laid off. As the Program Director, I have been asked once again to return to working on the air full-time and I will be taking over the afternoon shift. TOMMY will continue to contribute to FM 94/9 on weekends as the host of 'BRUNCH WITH BOB & FRIENDS' and 'TREEHUGGERS INTERNATIONAL.'
