Just plain Todd on WRKO ("Taste" gone)

I've heard that the show is brokered time. If so, wouldn't that make
Feinburg the show's "independent producer?" And if so, wouldn't he, or an
employee of his (not of Entercom) be responsible for booking the guests?

about 3 weeks ago.  No mention, nada.  The "live" reports from a female
"lifestyle reporter" at various clubs, et al also disappeared.  Although,
I'm not surprised.  She wasn't very effective and seemed uncomfortable in
the role despite some "at times obvious" verbal on-air coaching from Todd.

per hour and I think that lining up that number of guests per week is a
chore.  It's almost as if Todd is responsible for all aspects of his show -
guest procurement included.  Anybody have any inside info?
