More Layoffs at Clear Channel


This is no April Fools joke. More layoffs are taking place all around the country at radio's biggest company. Radio Ink heard from stations in Nashville, Oklahoma, Columbus, West Palm Beach, Jacksonville, Milwaukee and several other cities. If you were part of this round of layoffs and would like us to post your resume and aircheck, at no charge, contact Radio Ink editor Ed Ryan ( Clear Channel confirmed the changes were taking place in an e-mail to Radio Ink on Thursday.  

Clear Channel Vice President of Marketing & Entertainment Angel Aristone confirmed the changes were taking place. "We are constantly evaluating our organization and structure to make sure we are as well positioned as possible to continue to lead in the evolving marketplace. We’ve been looking closely at our business to ensure that we are properly staffed and operating as efficiently as possible with the right balance of services and personnel to meet the needs of our listeners/consumers.   Like every successful business, our strategy continues to evolve as we move forward as a company and that creates some new jobs, and unfortunately eliminates others. In the process, some employees were affected.  These are never easy decisions to make; we thank them for their service and wish them all the best for the future."

Note to Saul: Mr. Levine. Your comments are those of a reasonable man and only make sense. Can you knock it off, already? :)

So the NAB had the CHUTZPAH to file comments with the FCC to further deregulate radio which
provides Clear Channel/Bain Capital-Wall Street
additional opportunities to lay off employees, and the NAB stated more consolidation would enhance
localism. I suggest, in my opinion, the NAB needs new leadership to bring in sunshine, use
some commonsense, and protect the membership
from destructive conduct.
