    New GM wants to mark his territory. We’re living in a world where ratings don’t equal job security anymore.

    OB’s been moving towards trying to get a younger demographic audience. I’m surprised Adler is still around.

  • Jo B.

    In many cases, in this industry, “younger” = ‘inexperienced’ + ‘low salary’. Corus needs to realize that you can’t charge advertisers top dollar for spots, flood the air time with ads, and then fill it with inexperienced bubble heads & that idiotic news wheel format. BTW, who do they thing has the $ to buy the cars & the home improvements the advertisers are flogging? The ‘younger’ audience? Not a chance…

    Corus is a terrible company. They messed up the radio stations in Edmonton over the past couple of years and suddenly are no longer as popular as they once were. The great on-air personalities have moved to other stations and those are the stations getting the market share now. Good Luck, Hal! You’ll land on your feet in an even better role somewhere else!!

    What a bunch of idiots letting Hal go! Loved listening to him. I can’t stand the other stations…….they “try” to be funny, but for me they are just not the real thing.
    Good Luck Hal, you will find a job where you are respected!
    Companies now just don’t give a damn about people, they only want money, and lots of it!

    I would have thought that Hal Anderson was making them money which makes his release all the more confusing – unless of course they felt they were going to have to pay him more than they felt his ratings deserved
