With the clock about to strike midnight on 2011, it also appears to have struck midnight for Walter Sabo as Merlin Media chief operating officer.

Sabo, on his personal LinkedIn page, lists Merlin Media as his employer from May 2011 to December 2011 (8 months). Although, officially he joined the start-up company on June 27.

Merlin Media owns three radio stations, including FM News WEMP 101.9.

Adding further speculation that Sabo’s tenure may have ended with Merlin, the veteran radio programmer places his Merlin position is in the “past” category on LinkedIn.

On LinkedIn, he posts self-created businesses  Sabo Media and Hitviews as current jobs.

FishbowlNY attempted to reach Sabo and a spokesman for Merlin Media to confirm.

Merlin Media launched one of New York City’s first FM all-news stations in August,  a one-part cutting-edge, one-part experimental station.  

WEMP failed to gain ground in the overall December Arbitron ratings with a .6.  

Randy Michaels acquired WEMP and two other stations from Emmis in June.
