Here's what we know about Clear Channel's restructuring, and how it affects local operations.
Again, as pointed out, Alan Cutler, C. Trent Rosencrans, and Paul Daugherty are out. At 700WLW, Lance McAlister is in at 6pm, staying until 9 when the Reds do not play a night game, and staying until pregame when they are.
At 1530 WCKY, Mo Eggers will fill in for McAlister when the Reds do not play a night game in the 3-6pm slot. Fox Sports Radio otherwise fills out the schedule.
We now, however, have a new piece of information courtesy our friends at OMW (that's Ohio Media Watch for the new readers).
CC is going to take their local news operations and consolidate into a "hub and spoke" system.
We copied and pasted this from OMW's latest item, but this is who Cincinnati's CC Newsroom will serve in the new system:
You are reading correctly. Boston will no longer have its own live, local anchors delivering news updates.
For perspective, Boston is Arbitron's TENTH largest market. Cincinnati is market number 28. Memphis is number 49, Nashville a few spots above them at number 44. Toledo is number 91. These are rankings by size.
If the tenth largest market by size was ordered to basically lay off their entire news anchor staff, that's very significant! Boston likely still has a newsroom (after all, it doesn't make sense to call Cincinnati, if you're a Bostonian wanting to relay a breaking story, does it?)...but no longer are there or will there be live, local news anchors on the Boston stations.
