Well, now I know why I haven’t seen any of those Winnebago commercials with Scott Boyd lately. Scott has landed a job back in radio, and he’s a busy guy. I understand he is the sales manager, program director and ops manager for both East Coast FM and Classic Rock 97.9 in New Glasgow.
Pugwash native Floyd Blaikie, 27ish, is telling pals she plans to “sue the shit” out of Evanov, the Toronto-based broadcasting concern that owns Halifax’s Live 105, where up until recently she was the morning gal.
Mel Sampson and Goose Stuart, both part of the inaugural line up at 89.3 K-Rock in Kentville back in 2008, were let go from their new station, 95.9 Sun FM in Miramichi, around the first of December.
They had left the Valley to help launch this station in 2013. They worked extremely hard, even at one point helping to paint the offices in preparation for the new station’s launch.
Last time I wrote about the layoffs that were happening in radio, brought about by program directors. What happens when PDs themselves are laid off? Let’s find out!
