KGO-AM has shown the door to News Director Paul Hosley, Executive Producer Trish Robbins and morning weatherman Leo Ciolino (pictured) in a cost-cutting move. Hosley will be replaced by Ken Berry, a longtime KGO/KSFO staffer who is currently program director at KSFO. No word on who will be doing morning weather tomorrow. The shakeup, which apparently occurred today, was first reported by bloggers Rich Liberman and Brad Kava, and later confirmed by a KGO staffer.
The moves come six months after KGO let go Greg Edmonds, Greg Jarrett and three others for the same reason. While KGO-AM makes money, its parent company, Citadel Broadcasting, is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy because of heavy debts.
