Scott Shannon retires

Inside Radio

Scott Shannon was a legend with ABC radio, based out of New York City.  After Cumulus took over ABC, Scott Shannon was kicked loose and landed over at wcbs- FM, which is where he finished his career.   His audience followed him to CBS  which devastated the ratings of WPLJ.  He also produced the syndicated true oldies channel, and for a while was the overall program director of the ABC/Cumulus radio network.

Following their chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2021, Cumulus has been busy selling off the legacy ABC radio stations including WPLJ FM and WABC-AM.  None of this should be a surprise when you put a person in charge who had absolutely no radio experience.
