OMW hears that Clear Channel talk WTAM/1100 Cleveland afternoon drive host Mike Trivisonno has lost the services of two long-time show staffers.
Out the door at Oak Tree, presumably due to budget cuts, are producer/sidekicks Paul Rado and Marty Allen.
Rado joined the Triv show staff, if we're remembering right, when he offered up his impression of former Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell to the show. He's also hosted some of the station's weekend sports talk shows.
"Big Daddy" Marty Allen has been with Trivisonno since their days at then-talk WERE/1300 (now Radio One talk/brokered WERE/1490).
Triv broke into the professional end of the radio business reading sports on the old WNCX/98.5 morning drive show - the one right before WNCX became Cleveland's Howard Stern affiliate. WNCX and WERE were sister stations at the time.
OMW is also hearing, at least at "rumbling" level, that more layoffs are expected at Oak Tree tomorrow.
We've actually expected such moves, which we were told a week ago were expected to involve both on-air and off-air employees...but we don't have any handle on how many may be let go at Oak Tree - or elsewhere within Clear Channel - tomorrow...
