    Looking to trim costs in the radio business, CBS Corp. is acting to eliminate about 115 CBS Radio jobs nationally, or 1.3 percent of the 179-station division's workforce. Among the cuts locally, according to a CBS Radio source, was the remaining talent introducing oldies for the online and HD Radio channel attached to WJMK-FM 104.3, including longtime Chicago radio personality Dick Biondi. The secondary channel came into service after CBS abruptly dumped WJMK's oldies format for the expanded and more random playlist of Jack FM on the broadcast outlet 13 months ago.

    They're coming back by popular demand. Ok, make that corporate radio's desperate attempt to save its failing radio content and its stations' revenue after departure of the King. The one-time Boston radio bad boys Greg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia will return to Boston's WBCN 104.1FM airwaves as early as next Wednesday(4/26) morning. Meanwhile, after three long months former Van Halen lead man David Lee Roth is finally scheduled to wrap up his so-called 15-minute radio career tomorrow (Friday 4/21). This afternoon, Billboard Magazine has provided details on Opie and Anthony's return to broadcast radio and a reunion with their...
  • Howard Getting Sued By CBS Radio. (Howard Stern SLAMS CBS and Les Moonves On His Radio Show)

    Howard said that Joel Hollander and Les Moonves are preparing to sue him for talking about SIRIUS while he was on the air. He said that it's so ridiculous because they allowed him to do that. He said they could have hit the delay button on him if they didn't want him talking about it on the air. He said he had a meeting with Les and Joel the other day but he wont' talk about that yet. This is so unbelievable to him because Joel and Les came on the air and congratulated him for his move to SIRIUS....

    Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., which liberated radio shock jock Howard Stern from the federal decency standards that he felt had shackled him, is finding that freedom's just another word for $500 million to lose. Since Jan. 9, when Stern debuted on Sirius, pirated versions of the shows have been made available for free via several online file-sharing networks just hours after Stern signs off. The New York-based broadcaster signed Stern to a five-year, half-billion-dollar contract in 2004. (snip) A few weeks ago, when the first pirate radio stations began rebroadcasting Stern's show on unclaimed radio frequencies in New York and...

    (Severino Press Release Omits Controversies) With newly syndicated "libertarian/libertine" (read: anti-Bush quasi-liberal) host Jay Severin (real name: Jimmy Severino) still leading the pack, many controversies emanate from just a small number of questionable personalities. Even after exposes by the Boston-area news media on Sag Harbor, New York-based Severin's wild claims of winning a Pulitzer Prize for "online journalism" and other highly questionable assertions, CBS still went ahead with plans to take him national. What does that say about how very little has changed at the network since Rathergate? Teaming up with sister firm Westwood One, a highly misleading press release...
