The familiar names keep falling in L.A. radio. "Captain" Jorge Jarrin has been laid off after 26 years at KABC 790. "I will be fine," the airborne traffic reporter emailed Gary Lycan, radio columnist for the Register. "I will continue with my current role as manager of Spanish broadcast sales for the Dodgers, but once again the Dodgers have granted me the flexibility to entertain any on air opportunities that may arise. After all, the attraction of being on air still runs deep within me." Yesterday's news was the layoff of longtime KLOS deejay Jim Ladd and program director Bob Buchmann.
Add KLOS: Another longtime L.A. radio personality, Uncle Joe Benson, will take Buchmann's on-air slot at afternoon drive time.
