Year-end job cuts hit CBS Radio

Cutbacks came to CBS Radio Monday with four sales positions eliminated in the seven-station Chicago group. Two more are expected before the end of the year, sources said.

Performance reasons were cited for the reductions among the group’s total sales staff of 97, according to insiders.

In Chicago, CBS Radio includes: all-news WBBM AM 780 and WCFS FM 105.9; sports/talk WSCR AM 670; Top 40 WBBM FM 96.3; adult album alternative WXRT FM 93.1; country WUSN FM 99.5; and classic hits WJMK FM 104.3.
