Changes at Power 92 in Chicago? Morning Show Cutbacks?

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Radio Facts has gotten word that Chicago’s Power 92 (WPWX) released 3/4 of their morning show yesterday (Thurs).   This came late so it’s still alleged. Trey the Choklit DJ’s producer, Lisa Finkle, co-host Alexx Dupri, and traffic/sports personality Sean Dale have supposedly been cut due to budget cutbacks.   Trey will be doing the morning show solo with the assistance of a board op YIKES!   Management is spinning it as a move to construct a “more music” morning show to improve the ratings and my name is Dufus Rumpelstiltskin. Chicago is NOT a market for a solo jock to man mornings. This is Chicago, IL not Chicago, AL. I smell more changes.   In the most recent PPM monthly ratings (18-34), the Trey the Choklit DJ Morning Jumpoff was ranked 23rd against WGCI’s Tony Sculfield & the Morning Riot which was in 8th place. There is speculation that several syndicated shows have expressed interest in the spot with their wallets and purses out.

Having spent some time in the Crawford family, you can never be surprised by any move they make, even the really stupid ones.
