    Post WBMP FM PD to exit.

    "When you're coming up on the end of a contract, you begin to do some soul-searching as to what the best future for both career and family might be. I'm very thankful to CBS, CHRIS OLIVERO, MARC RAYFIELD, SCOTT HERMAN and MICHAEL MARTIN for their respect and understanding. I have begun engaging in conversations and will keep you posted. The programming team here at AMP/NEW YORK is the best crew in radio and I will miss them dearly."

    Is there a format flip on the way?

    Flip to what tho? Most of FM radio sounds the same lately. I did enjoy their New Year's mixshow special, that was different.

    If CBS thought they could make as much money simulcasting 1010 on FM as they do with the low numbers they already get on 92.3, they'd do it in a heartbeat.

    But my bet would be that they would be "Newsradio 92 and 880." WCBS always gets better ratings in all the 'burbs and, with a huge FM signal, they'd be better off.

    I doubt that either WCBS or WINS will move to the FM band since CBS radio would lose a revenue stream.

    Didn't a CBS station in Philly just flip from CHR to A/C ?

    No format flip. Contracts get non-renewed all the time, for successful and not successful stations. He is an unfortunate victim of cost-cutting that we're seeing all over radio.

    Not just traditional radio either. Pandora just cut 7% of its work force. Sinclair is cutting staff in TV. There are cuts at various cable channels. So things are tough all over.

    Not to mention newspapers and magazines. Is there a growth sector in media, other than mostly-European-staffed "fake news" websites?

    Depends on what you call "growth." There's growth in usage, but it doesn't always translate to growth in revenue, because the users want content for free.
