Sports Jocks Fired on air, Find out via Twitter (vid)

This is the reason that labels, jocks, PDs and radio should befriend the legitimate industry press. We really DO know things BEFORE they do that could affect them. Chicago radio blogger Robert Feder broke the story on Twitter about the station folding WHILE THE JOCKS WERE ON THE AIR. Tribune Media, owners of WGN, launched the area’s first sports talk radio FM station in February. It just didn’t work and yesterday the news broke that The Game 87.7 was folding Hosts Alex Quigley and Ben Finfer are pissed and blame industry vet GM Jimmy de Castro for not having the courage to inform them. Listen to their reaction. Actually Finfer is more pissed but welcome to radio, it appears his ego is wounded. It has happened to the beast of us. He’s rambling and the station does note owe him an explanation. The people who are texting him are right, shut up and stop whining and finish the show. A potential NEW employer could be listening.
