Dwight Walker used to run KNBR in the pre-Cumulus days. He's now VP/Market Manager of Entercom SF and runs 95.7 FM, (The Game).
I'm hearing through the grapevine that Walker is making a push to come back to Cumulus and head up its cluster, that of course, being KNBR, KFOG, KGO, The Bone, etc.
Wait. Didn't they just fire Bungey, (Bill Bungeroth) and hire egg-white-tough Gary Pizatti? Yeah, and now comes word that Pizatti is a temp guy until a new Bungey is hired.
If all of this is confusing, and it is, sorry, but there's a gazillion rumors circulating in the Hawthorne cluster. I'm sure the lunch room is just a hoot.
This much is certain. Something or someone, maybe both, is about to go down.
I'm on it.
I don't have a dog in the Barbieri/Cumulus fight. I merely was reporting on the case, (or lack thereof) of the ramifications involving his suit with the company and whether Bungey's ouster absolved him of being deposed. It's a legitimate question.
There are people that wanted to know just that information. The fact I brought it up has nothing to do with my opinion of Ralph's status, his demise, and/or whether he has a case. Like it or not, the guy was here on radio for 25 years and therefore, yes, anything pertinent to his affairs, however trivial or noteful will get noted on this site.
