A shout out to the fallen

Another downsizing in radio.

In early October I experienced what many have in recent years.  The loss of their job in the radio business.

The downsizing has continued.  At Clear Channel in Tucson that has included Rosanna Gaxiola, Jennie Grabel, Carlos Zeta, and Chris Patyk.  I worked with all but Chris while I was at Clear Channel back in the day.  They're all wonderful people.  I know how they feel.

I also know of Steve Jackson in Modesto and my friend Robbie in Birmingham, Alabama who were also let go from their radio jobs.

Here's a shout out to everyone who has lost their job and a giant wish you find a new job quickly that you love.  Its a challenge to find something new that you can pour your passion into.  But, when you're shoved out the door for no reason except you were an expense a company no longer wanted its satisfying to know they'll be worse off without you.
