Matthews' Contract Renewal

The folks at Oak Tree want to make sure you know this:

Clear Channel Cleveland rock WMMS/100.7 - top 40 WAKS/96.5 program director Bo Matthews has signed a three year contract extension, taking him - on paper - until April 2010.

Bo gained the "Kiss FM" addition to his duties in replacement of former "Kiss" programmer Dan Mason, now trying to bring new stability to embattled top 40 outlet KDND/107.9 Sacramento CA ("The End"), which was that certain station with that certain contest that made national news...

Holding companies, not new owners.

The entire Akron Cluster is in a Capstar holding group.

The CLeveland radio market is very political. It is controlled by Mike Mc Vay and a handful of others. The politics cross Clear Channel, CBS and Radio 1. They have been successful at keeping their buddies employed while better jocks go unheard and more credible managers remain unemployed. Carl Hirsch was never part of that group and operated independently and that was one of the reasons for the successes at WMMS and WMJI and Malrite when Carl ran that company. I hope its Carl Hirsch. He will hire against the Mike Mc Vay grain and get those that deserve to be on the air back on and maybe return some of the better programmers and promotion people back to Cleveland radio.
