Mark Plotkin and WTOP are parting ways. Jim Farley, Vice President of News and Programming for WTOP, has confirmed to WaPo‘s Erik Wemple that Plotkin is no longer with the station. Farley also confirms that the decision was made by WTOP. Radio journalists around town are already suspecting that 99.1 WNEW, the new all-news station in town, is licking their chops at the opportunity to snatch up Plotkin. One radio executive wondered if he had already been talking to WNEW, which prompted his release from WTOP. FishbowlDC has reached out to Steve Swenson, Senior Vice President and Market Manager for CBS Radio Washington, D.C. for a comment.
