Bell Media Shuts Detroit Offices; 89X Cuts Most Of Its Airstaff

Posted: 30 Mar 2017 05:52 PM PDT

From RadioInsight

As part of its ongoing corporate restructuring, Bell Media has eliminated
the airstaff on Alternative 89X 88.7 CIMX Windsor ON and closed its Detroit
sales office.

Exiting with the cuts are morning hosts Cal Cagno and Gillian Reilly,
midday hosts Phil “PK” Kukawinski, afternoon host Reed Petitpren and
members of the promotions and sales departments. Only night host Mark
McKenzie remains from the on-air staff.

The company is eliminating is US based sales office for the Detroit market
and will focus its efforts on the Canadian side of the border. In addition
to CIMX, Bell Media owns Oldies AM 580 CKWW, News/Talk AM 800 CKLW, and AAA
93.9 The River CIDR in the Detroit/Windsor market. Of the four stations,
only 89X subscribed to Nielsen Audios PPM ratings for Detroit where it
registered a 1.6 share in the February monthly.

In a press statement, Bell Media Director of Corporate Communications
Matthew Garrow stated, We have reduced a number of broadcast positions at
Bell Medias local TV and radio stations as part of a larger restructuring
at Bell Media, including the closure of our Detroit satellite office
supporting Windsor radio stations 89X, The River, Memories 580, and AM 800.
The four stations will retain their current formats and their signals will
continue to carry into the Detroit market. The restructuring is a response
to the challenges we and other Canadian media companies are facing on
multiple fronts: changing broadcast technologies and growing international
competition, a tough advertising market, and ongoing regulatory pressure.
