LateNightCounsell13 hrs · As of 10:45 this morning I have been terminated from CFRA. My last show was last night. Bell Media thinks they are in charge. God is!!!

Re: Radio host Mark Sutcliffe among layoffs at CFRA

So, does CFRA still exist or has it become "CTV Ottawa" as we were forewarned?...

(Brilliant move by the way...Eliminating 68 years of heritage and familiarity in a day. If so...Are they going to run the audio from CTV Newsnet?  That sounded so great (NOT) on 1050 Toronto.  I loved hearing them say "Lets look as you can see here"... Did that get a .1 rating or a hash mark?  I can't recall)

Meh, depending on Roger's budget, maybe the liberal talkers can be picked up by 1310 News.

Good.  Does Lior Samfiru (sp) have a branch office in Ottawa?

God is?  Oh....reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally?

Must be on vacation... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... and has been for a few centuries.

Perhaps Bill can fill THAT void as well?

Money.  Gotta pay some out...so salaries must be tossed...overhand.  Heritage means absolutely nothing anymore to Bell or anyone else.  Alexander Graham who?  If he was alive he'd have been toast years ago.  [and wrongfully so.]
