Hope this latest slash-and-burn didn’t singe anyone in Tigard.January 14, 2020 at 7:07 pm #43780
Very sad…Never heard the term “Employee Dislocation” before….condolences to those effective. Firings, layoffs.
Not one for Politically Correct terms either.. When you put lipstick on a Pig, you still have….

This pig don’t look so good in makeup. Gettin’ kinda old and fat.January 15, 2020 at 10:23 am #43789Alfredo_TParticipant
After reading through the story, it seems clear to me that iHeart paid some very good PR people to put together its press release.January 15, 2020 at 11:12 am #43790Andy BrownParticipant
No surprises here. They’ll keep abusing the corpse of radio, destroying people’s careers and lives in what will be a failed attempt to survive 20+ years of malfeasance. Like drumpf, they still have plenty of fans that think they are a good thing.January 15, 2020 at 11:36 am #43791
Some of the groups I follow on Facebook are reporting iHeart deal was from 1000-1200 “Employee Dislocations”…stupid term again…January 15, 2020 at 3:22 pm #43792bleedingroidParticipant
Can anybody please list the names of the professionals who got the hook today?January 15, 2020 at 4:28 pm #43793paulwalkerParticipant
Yes, I was wondering how this has effected the Seattle and Portland operations.January 15, 2020 at 4:37 pm #43794
There are lists in several trades…this is the most comprehensive I’ve seen (but I’m sure not all-inclusive): http://ramp247.com/free-agent/iheartache-reorganization-major-layoffs/
Another one, by market: https://radioinsight.com/headlines/183270/ongoing-list-of-those-affected-by-iheartmedia-cuts/
Nothing seen for Portland, but Seattle lost two morning producers and a weekender.January 15, 2020 at 4:43 pm #43795
Alfredo, you and one of the writers for Rolling Stone think alike – check out the third and fourth paras of this excellent article: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/iheartmedia-mass-layoffs-937513/

I now see KJR-fm morning jock Marty Reimer is out as well as KJR-am sports host Cliff Avril. KUBE morning co host Jenna also exits. edit: I see those in the links above, thank you boss. This is really a blood bath sadly.January 20, 2020 at 8:11 pm #43832Dan PackardKeymaster
Why have anyone local anymore with the FCC removing the Main Studio rule? Just run everything from corporate headquarters in Tennessee or Georgia, and drive even more listeners away from listening.January 20, 2020 at 8:52 pm #43834ScreamerParticipant
Amen, Dan!January 21, 2020 at 8:19 am #43841
Agreed Dan…who would have thought of what is happening today, in the radio business…. on the other hand, it gives a great opportunity for the small local stations (like LP’s) to really shine and hopefully pick up listeners….Long Live Free and Locally controlled radio!
