Jim Ladd Will Get to Say Goodbye on KFI

KLOS-FM disc jockey Jim Ladd was one of a dozen employees abruptly laid off by Cumulus Media last week.

With no heads up from management, it appeared Ladd wouldn’t get a chance to say goodbye to his fans. But Gary Lycan of The Orange County Register reports Ladd will fill in for Lisa Ann Walter on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 4 p.m.-7 p.m.

“(KFI) Program Director Robin Bertolucci was very kind and asked me to do a show because I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye to my audience. I’m looking forward to it,” Ladd told Lycan via e-mail.

Kudos to KFI for doing the right thing and giving Ladd an outlet to conduct a proper farewell.
