Kevin Kinkead - April 6, 2020

Last week it was reported that the NBA was discussing neutral sites in which to house teams and play out the remainder of the season. Las Vegas was mentioned along with Atlantic City and some other locales.

What We Know About the Bloodbath at Philadelphia’s Entercom Radio Stations

Kevin Kinkead - April 3, 2020

They stripped down their suburban Philadelphia outlets, sold newsrooms, and basically reduced this thing to the studs already. There’s almost nothing left to cut, but they’re gonna try anyway, going the route of every other media company in the country and reducing costs during the COVID-19 crisis.

Here’s a copy of the “voluntary separation plan” that they sent out to employees:
