Longtime Calgary broadcasters gone

Postby rtirdnewsguy » Fri Jul 31, 2020 4:13 pm

The Corus bloodbath continues at CHQR in Calgary.
Veteran reporter Aurelio Perri and Dave Rowe from the sports department were ‘ whacked ‘ on Tuesday.
On Thursday former news director and drive home host Joe McFarland found his head on the chopping block even though he became a father for the first time a few short days ago.
Apparently Corus will network the afternoon drive show(not sure from where ), and use Global TV Calgary employees to fill the city hall reporting void left by the decision to get rid of Aurelio.
Makes you wonder if radio will survive ?
