Morons, killing local programming and jocks; I have no reason to listen to terrestrial radio anymore once the last morning man goes.
Toledo got hit bad today by the HeartLESS tornado, at least 5 gone that I know of.
How bad in the D?

It looks like iHeartlessMedia has removed the DJ profiles from all of their websites, which means they are likely preparing for massive cuts here locally.

Brutal day in radio today. Black Tuesday. Radio as we know it will never be the same.

I knew the Indianapolis guys were on thin ice ever since they dumped the FM translator. They were the only local show left.

Brutal.
Just brutal.
Do we know of any Detroit casualties?
The female jock who has been on Channel recently, whom I thought sounded really good, is absent. Brady from Z100 NYC is on.
Dave Kent and KC were still on WNIC snd WLLZ respectively.

Absolutely and sincerely heartbroken for all who lost their gigs today and the recent Entercom and Beasley cuts as well. Seems like what was left of this business was gutted in the last two months.
RIP radio.

I noticed Anne Erickson (spelling?) wasn't doing her normal overnight shift on Fake Wheels last night.

An informative article appears at detnews.com.

Locally, a sales manager lost his or her job, Krissy T of WKQI (evenings) has been replaced by a voice tracker from Los Angeles, Anne Erickson of WLLZ was fired, and multiple mix show hosts at WJLB were fired.
