Tough to be a mid-day host at a country station in Atlanta.
Just a week after Sari Rose lost her mid-day job at Kicks 101.5 so Cumulus could place Q100’s Bert Show host Jenn Hobby in her place, mid-day host Tim Michaels has been canned from Clear Channel’s 94.9/The Bull as part of sizable nationwide layoffs. His name has been wiped from the front page of the Bull website.
Michaels was there for about a year. Before that, he worked at Kicks 101.5, where he hosted the late afternoon shift for a time.
Madison Reeves is doing mid-days today for the Bull, which debuted in late 2006.
In ratings this year, Kicks 101.5 and 94.9/The Bull are neck and neck.
In better news, former 99X and Dave FM host Steve Craig will be joining 97.1/The River as a fill-in host and programming person. Hopefully, this will lead to a full-time gig. The River currently goes jockless during the mid-days.
