Clear Channel added another 200 firings to their legacy. This week it was the intermediate size markets where local “talent” and back office staff got the axe.
What this means is even more clear channel stations carrying national programming and having empty clusters after 9 am running automated.
More than likely this means that where possible, they’ll pull the premiere shows from non-clear channel stations, as they did in the Boston and Raleigh markets.
Next week or two, the axe will hit the major markers. Clear Channel still has that $20 billion in debt hanging over them, and it’s going to come up every year until they “restructure” or a miracle happens.
