This is not entirely shocking: KGO Radio; among other areas they're about to rid themselves courtesy the Cumulus cut machine, is in the process of deemphasizing sports, at least sports reports. It began with the firing of Kevin Radich and will probably coincide with other eliminations down the road.
Longtime sports anchor/reporter/SD in the morning, Rich Walcoff, who is a 31-year veteran at KGO, is safe for now and figures to be around for the foreseeable future given his tenure but with Cumulus, you never know.
They have ongoing issues you see.
My gut tells me KGO will see a few more mid-tenured staff reductions; people who are fulltime and in the union are on the cutting edge so that part-timers (who are cheaper) can fill the void.
That's why the rank and file (in the newsroom) are on edge and expressing major anxiety in the break room over their status and murky future.
