Still, via All Access Music Group comes the news that KLOS has now also lost its program director Jack Silver. He was separately overseeing, for a longer time at La Cienega Blvd. HQ, the operations of sister station KABC 790 AM:
“I feel great about what we’ve done here for the past two years at KLOS, particularly,” Silver told All Access. “I’m leaving on a high note, with Top 5 Adults 25-54, and #2 Men 25-54 total week at KLOS. We knocked both JACK FM and THE SOUND off their perches. I’m a certified PPM proven winner, and I’m ready for the next challenge.”
OC Register radio columnist Gary Lycan notes in his report tonight that negotiations have been ongoing between parent co. Cumulus and a Chicago attorney (Eliot Ephraim) to try and keep Brian Phelps, the other half of Mark and Brian, locked in beyond the shadow of these two departures. Thompson’s last day on the popular morning show is August 17.
