Rod Fritz is fired, who is next?
Sat Mar 31 20:58:09 EDT 2018

Can someone speak to the economic benefit or lack there of, of laying off Dan Rae and Bradley Jay. Does saving a few hundred thousand (at most) really benefit Iheart? Between advertising dollars and bad will, doesn't cost more money not having them on?

Thank you,

Sources within WBZ say that the rumor in house is that Dan Rea and Bradley J will be the next on the chopping block....with syndicated programming running from 7pm til 5am.

I think it's outrageous the way it was handled. Given his many years there, you'd think the memo would have been a little warmer & more courteous, but I guess iHeart doesn't care about longevity, am I right?
