   Today's (12/5) Boston Herald reports that Clear Channel has cut 5 
staffers at WXKS-FM (Kiss 108) and WJMN (JAM'N 94.5). Kiss 108 midday host 
Deirdre Dagata, JAM'N 94.5 staffers let go include night host Maverik, 
Hustle Simmons, mix show host Roy Barboza and production director Doug 
MacAskill. The report also states that the midday slots on both Kiss & JAM'N 
will be filled by hosts who will be "importing" their shows from New York & 
Los Angeles. I guess "importing" must be the new and politically correct 
term for "voicetracking".

  Here's a link to the Herald story:

   Voicetracked, oops, "imported" midday shifts on 2 top rated Boston 
stations. I believe they both have had voicetracked overnights for a while 
now. Will they voicetrack/import more shifts down the road?
