POST iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) layoff, Marty Allen on his WTAM past and future with Cleveland Cavaliers Radio Network

For 15 years, “Big Daddy” Marty Allen was producer and a sidekick on the popular Mike Trivisonno radio show on WTAM AM/1100. A year ago, in layoffs that affected iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) radio stations nationwide, Allen was let go. His trademark gregarious, booming voice is now back, with an online radio show and a new gig as a producer for the Cleveland Cavaliers radio network. He recently answered a few questions from PDQ’s John Campanelli.

Editor’s note: Some of the remarks were critical of his former colleague and employer. When informed, Trivisonno responded, on the air, “Are they [PDQ] that hard up?” Asked if he wanted to respond, he said, “For me to respond to that, that would be an absolute joke.” When asked if iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) wanted to comment, WTAM Program Director Ray Davis replied via e-mail that he “enjoyed working with Marty Allen and he wishes him nothing but the best,” and that the station can’t comment about personnel matters.
