West Michigan: Newsmakers Dec 5, 2007




Grand Rapids Press:

You may need a scorecard to keep track of the shake-ups in local broadcasting this week. Three major personalities are no longer with Clear Channel radio. WOOD-AM (1300) morning co-host John Matlack, WOOD-FM (Star 105.7) morning co-host Sabrina Fairchild and traffic reporter Robb Westaby were all fired this week. The new morning team on WOOD-FM is Tommy Dylan and Brook Taylor, who worked for WCSG-FM (91.3) for the past three years. "The new morning team will take over the show and start 100 percent on board on Wednesday." said Tim Feagan, newly appointed general manager for Clear Channel. "They really fit with West Michigan and what Star should be. They are very family friendly, have a great rapport and will be an integral part of our station. We are very excited about this. This is the right thing for listeners." Steve Kelly will stay in a different capacity with Clear Channel Radio, and told listeners Tuesday "he was getting a new assignment." Feagan would not release details Tuesday. "There is more to come," he said... Radio shakeup not over, Clear Channel GM says (Wed, 12/5)
