Entercom Cuts Eight in Chicago

According to media columnist Robert Feder, Entercom may be cutting jobs in Chicago including Country WUSN.

Feder writes, "Not even the owner of Chicago’s top revenue-producing radio station is immune from financial pressures. Entercom Communications, parent company of all-news WBBM 780-AM/WCFS 105.9-FM, laid off eight employees here Tuesday — five in traffic and continuity and three in sales."

There are no specific names but notes another four positions in finance will be cut in August with other staff reductions on the way. 

In a note to employees, SVP/Market Manager Chicago Jimmy DeCastro wrote, "There are longtime co-workers and friends--we want to thank them for their years of hard work and wish nothing but the best for their collective futures.",,
