Brook Missing From Star Website

Post by handbanana » Mon May 01, 2017 5:35 pm

After seeing the story about Britta I started poking around the iHeart websites and Brook no longer shows up on the on-air lineup for Star: http://westmichiganstar.iheart.com/onair/

Has Brook been canned? I thought she and Tommy were a package deal back when they were brought in?

The only other changes I noted were Britta missing from B93 and Shmitty is not on the WOOD page, but still on 104.5. Anything or anyone I'm missing?

Rob Sanford of WOOD Radio has told his Facebook friends iHeart let him go today.

This sucks. I'm sorry to learn of these dismissals at iHeartless.

If I were Cumulus, my first move would be to hire Britta and stick her in PM drive on WTNR. Unfortunately, they're too stupid to do that.

Omg, I actually predicted this today on that other thread.

Hope everything goes well for her, I Imagine Tommy will go to weekends or middays or whatever and PC syndicated shit in the morning.

More good people gone. Iheart is a joke, I'd hate to be working in sales for these guys too.

Sorry to hear about Rob, Britta and Brooke. All good people, and none of them deserved it, much like the dozens before them.

Wonder if Tommy goes to middays over on B93 with Star going completely (or mostly) PC

And yet:
>"Ryan Seacrest isn’t leaving the radio airwaves for his new gig with Kelly Ripa: RadarOnline.com has learned that he’s just signed a new multi-million-dollar deal with iHeart Radio." 73 million over 3 years. That would pay for a lot of Britta's, Brook's, and Rob's.

That contract won't mean squat when iFart files for bankruptcy. Look for that contract to be heavily renegotiated as part of any plan of reorganization that gets filed.

Yesterday afternoon I Heard their PM Jock Dave Kent say something about "Catch up with Tommy and Brook" tomorrow.
As if he forgot he knew, On Brook's twitter, she confirmed she was let go to a christian author.

I' would imagine he's in the habit of saying "Tommy & Brook." Pretty easy mistake to make.

The last 9 1/2 years they've been a staple there, now I Imagine either Connie and Curtis or WCSG will be top for mornings in the women demo.

Knowing iHate they'll probably eventually get rid of Tommy as well and maybe syndicate Jay Towers from WNIC. And quite frankly I'm also shocked they still have Delilah - yes, her music is more uptempo now along with the rest of the AC format but she still carries the image of being a "sappy love songs" host. I read somewhere "Wind Beneath My Wings" is still her most requested song even though she doesn't play it.

I'm surprised Mario hasn't replaced Delilah.

Today during a commercial break Tommy said "tomorrow we'll be talking about something something", still talking collectively, must be tough to break.

Maybe by "we'll", he was including the audience.
