Pat Cassidy leaves WBBM-AM

One thing yours truly has learned about this business in recent years: There’s no summer vacation when it comes to media news (particularly in July), especially when it pertains to comings and goings. Today, yet another big name has left a media outlet.

Pat Cassidy, who was co-anchor at WBBM-AM with Felicia Middlebrooks for the last eight years, has left his position for a desire to do talk radio. Reportedly, he may surface at WLS-AM, or another talk outlet.

Watch this space and stay tuned.

UPDATE: It is indeed official: Pat Cassidy is going to WLS. Cassidy’s contract expired today, and he declined to renew, preferring to re-invent himself as a talk-show host. More details here.
