Clear Channel

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Current KAAY Changes":

I read an announcement in the paper
this morning that Clear Channel is cutting 1,850 jobs around the country. Clear Channel is the largest media market in the country.
They own radio stations in Little Rock, Fort Smith & Fayetteville.
They didn't comment on which jobs in Arkansas were cut.

Part of the reason that Clear Channel and Citadel are making cuts is that they are going to more nationally syndicated shows.
This leaves the local person who has worked at a particular station for a number of years without a job.
There is two stations in Little Rock that are still locally owned and are located at 2400 Cottondale Lane. One of them is KKPT (The Point 94.1). All their DJ's are on live and are local people.
The only syndicated program is Flashback on Sunday mornings.
Most importantly, Sunday evenings from 7-midnight is Beaker Street.
