Brad Polston is out as iHeart Media’s local market manager after 14 months of leading the cluster of stations that includes WFBQ-FM 94.7 and WNDE-AM 1260. His replacement has been working in billboard ad sales.
WXNT-AM says the mass exodus of its news-talk listener base was to be expected during transition to CBS Sports radio content.
Jimmy Matis wasn’t sure what he would do when he lost his job after 24 years at Q95, but in this life, he says, “you just have to understand that you constantly have to learn.”
Radio station WFNI-AM 1070 is challenging some FM music stations in the battle for male listeners.
Several local radio employees lost their jobs this week in a round of layoffs by San Antonio-based Clear Channel, the parent company of WRZX-FM 103.3, WFBQ-FM 94.7 and WNDE-AM 1260.
