CBS Calls Remain; EYE Closes

ENTERCOM making changes locally. Country KKWF/Rhythmic AC KHTP PD Mike Preston is out at the end of February. Preston joined Entercom in 2009. VP/Programming Dave Richards fills in while a permanent replacement is found…Jim Rome is signing a multi-year deal with CBS Radio.. Speaking of the Entercom/CBS radio deal, as part of the merger agreement, stations KCBS & WCBS and other stations with calls matching CBS-owned TV, keep the call letters for the next 20 years. Other language in the deal spells out that CBS branding [the trademark EYE, all references to CBS Corporation, the CBS Brands and all CBS television station brand names] currently associated with radio, will be scaled back and eventually removed from all Entercom assets.
