Jim Ladd Out at KLOS

Jim Ladd, a legendary local disc jockey at KLOS (95.5 FM), was one of a dozen employees laid off by Cumulus Media earlier this week.

Ladd was on his third stint at KLOS, where he was on from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Thursday. He first started at the classic rock station in 1969.

“My disappointment is I didn’t have a farewell show,” Ladd told Gary Lycan of The Orange County Register. “I was very stunned and I still am. I have been through this before, but it is always traumatic.”

According to Lycan, program director and host Bob Buchmann was also axed, along with employees from the sales, promotion, production and web departments.
