The KFRC farewell show we hinted at earlier this week is not to be. Celeste Perry, one of the on-air hosts who lost her job Monday as the FM station prepares to simulcast KCBS-AM, tells the Bay Area Radio Digest it's not going to happen. "We recorded little goodbye promos after we were unceremoniously laid off on Monday morning," says the former morning co-host (fourth from left).
Besides Perry, program coordinator Cory Callewaert, morning man Dave Sholin (center), morning show producer James Baker, mid-day host Sue Hall (second from left) and afternoon host Jay Coffey (right) lost their jobs Monday, according to AllAccess.com. Also departing is marketing and production director Christopher Denatale.
Remaining with CBS Radio/San Francisco are imaging director/night personality Steve Moore (left) and production manager Tim Jordan. KFRC general sales manager Karl Isotalo will become interim national sales manager for the simulcast and KFRC local sales manager Melissa Galliani will become new business sales manager.
