According to the R&R website, the morning team of Ralphie Marino & 
Karen Blake, along with middayer Mike McGowan were all let go.  There 
was no word on afternooner Diana Steele (Lady D) or night jock Marc 
Clark but chances are they're gone too.  The station is still doing 
their disco show next week.  It will be interesting to see who emcees 
it.  As it is, traffic reporter Frankie Foxx, a Metro Traffic employee 
voiced the format introduction promo.  Maybe she'll bring Donna Summer 
on stage.

I would imagine that the station will at least have a morning show.  
Many of these "variety" stations are jockless, but most have a morning 
show, even if it's just a time and temp jock.  The station in San Diego 
that just flipped to the format kept their heritage morning show.  A 
couple of Jacks in Canada have full jock staffs, at least from 6a-7p.  
I doubt that Entercom is in any hurry to put together an airstaff, but 
they may have to have some presence in morning drive.
