Emmis cuts positions in Chicago

The economic downturn has affected every corner of our economy, and the radio industry is no exception. Layoffs were prevalent today at Emmis’ classic rocker WLUP-FM (The Loop) and WKQX-FM (Q101). A total of five individuals were laid off.

The causality list: WLUP Program Director Bill Klaproth; Imaging Director Kevyn Howrd; Marketing Director Tommy King; Sales Assistant Carly Keenan; and Webmaster Jessie Goodman.

Replacing Klaproth as PD at WLUP is afternoon jock Eddie Webb, and two others were promoted to promotions – Jeannine Moose and Jimi Hendrix (no, not that Jimi Hendrix…)
