Wayne Harrett is reporting that Amy Chabot was let go from C100. I contacted her just now. She confirmed the bad news. Amy is an excellent broadcaster, and a lovely person in every sense of the word. I know she will land on her feet, and soon.
And I just learned in the last few minutes that Sheumas Campbell was laid off from 101.9 The Giant in Cape Breton. That bad news happened this morning. Two others at the Newcap stations in Cape Breton were also relieved of their on air positions. I have the names but have been asked to sit on them for a day or two.
My god, what is this medium coming to? When it comes down to saving a few bucks, these stations and companies are ruthless.
My best wishes to Amy, to Sheumas, and the other two folks.
See you tomorrow.
