While iHeart Fires Staff, Mojo's Son is Hired at WKQI

Post by JustNepotism » Sun Jun 04, 2017 5:28 pm

While iHeartMedia has been shrinking staff across the country and locally, it seems they've been able to find a salary for Joe Carballo, AKA Just Joe, AKA the son of Mojo In The Morning.

Joe comes from WKSC-FM in Chicago where he recently interned while attending Columbia College.

He's likely pulling a part-time salary; not exactly a game changer. Just because he's Mojo's son does not disqualify him from working for the same company. Would be a lot more awkward if he worked for DZH or DVD!

Aside from WDFN's Matt Shepard, whose show has been running on borrowed time for years, did anyone else in the Detroit cluster lose his or her job as a result of the recent layoffs?

Isn't another of Mojo's offspring already working at 95.5? I thought he said that one of them was.

I was gonna say judging from his attire in that photo, he's probably not being paid very much!

Wasn't he known as "Cougar Bait" at one point?

Is the night shift on CHR now considered part time? If so, that shows the sad state of Detroit radio.

Good question; I don't know the answer.

I presume he replaced Stick (who was never that great as an on-air personality), who was promoted to Program Director of WSNX in Grand Rapids.

Speaking of "sad" markets, I believe only one or two FM stations in Grand Rapids are live & local after 7PM.

In the Toledo market, the only 2 players in town: ClearChannel/iHeart and Cumulus run voicetracking from 7pm to midnight and NOBODY in either cluster building; so dead air and emergencies, nobody to answer the phones. So much for the FCC main studio rule- they can't even have one board op for 7 stations at either building? Sad. Now I understand how we've gone from Market #77 to Market #101, but what crap from days of old.
And, WVKS had the top morning show in the money demo, and they fire everyone here and pipe in Mojo- WTF?

It was alluded to on the Drew & Mike podcast that Drew is somewhat friendly with Mojo and wanted to find out more about this.

MW, I can't think of one live/local night show left in GR unless possibly someone is live on WLAV.

If I'm Giving iHeartGR the benefit of the doubt that someone is in the building it's just a board op on WOOD.
