Darrell Satzman in the LA Business Journal looks at the firing last week of the longtime general managers at both local AM radio news stations, KNX and KFWB. George Nicholaw had been at KNX since 1967, when he launched the all-news format. Roger Nadel had been the head at KFWB since 1996. The shakeup follows the arrival of new management at Infinity Broadcasting, which owns both stations.
The LABJ also reports that the syndicated version of "Good Day L.A.," the local morning show on Channel 11 with Steve Edwards, Jillian Barberie and Dorothy Lucey, is bombing nationally. Also, David Greenberg on why Gelson's wins in a grocery strike even though it's a union store, and Brentwood as political power center.
