In a memo sent by CNN Radio’s director of audio programming Tyler Moody and obtained by TVNewser, Moody writes, “This type of change is difficult, especially when those impacted are our longtime colleagues and friends. I would like to thank each of you and acknowledge your work and contributions toward CNN Radio.”
