Massive Cuts at Radio One's Sports Talk Station WTEM The Team 980

As reported by DCRTV-- The Washington, D.C. media website hears from a reliable local radio source that Urban One, Inc. the corporate arm of Radio One is making massive budget cuts to their newly-acquired WTEM, The Team 980. Out are: Chris Cooley, Doc Walker, Bram Weinstein, and Scott Jackson. The only show not affected is Steve Czaban's. Cuts expected to continue, including off-air positions.

New shows not yet determined, though Al Koken, Fred Smoot, and Chick Hernandez are all getting try-outs this week. Back in May, Silver Spring-based Urban One, Inc, agreed to purchase sports talker WTEM from Red Zebra, which was owned by Redskins owner Dan Snyder. The 980 AM signal was Snyder's last broadcast radio property. He'd sold WTEM's two FM signals last year. WTEM 980 The Team is Urban One's only Sports Talk station.
