Not a Good Day for Afternoon Radio Talent

At WBEZ, "The Afternoon Shift" was cut from lineup, and the host Niala Boodhoo was fired. The rest of the staff was moved over to the "The Morning Shift", which now must have a staff of ten or so for a one hour show. (Slight exaggeration on the number of producers, but I bet it's not far off)

At Kiss-FM, afternoon host Jordan was let go after five years in that slot. It wasn't because of the ratings. He was rated 3rd in the whole market, and 2nd in the 18-34 demo.
