I’m jumping on a plane but I can tell you that I’ve confirmed that as part of today’s Rogers Media layoffs Greg Brady and Jeff Sammut are no longer part of the Fan 590 lineup.
Rumours about both have been swirling for weeks however as late as last night it appeared that Brady might be saved.
Brady came to Toronto as a co-host with Bill Watters on 640 before moving to the Fan. At his pinnacle Brady co-hosted the morning show before being moved again to the graveyard 1-4 slot along with Andrew Walker.
Clears the time slot didn’t need the budget that two hosts carried and the result is what it is in a budget cut world.
Sammut has been at the fan for over 17 years most of them behind the glass. He was behind many voices while producing the morning show with Stellick and Landry. As the host of nighttime radio Sammut was passed over time and time for his own daytime gig so in a budget tight world it probably makes sense to use the time to groom new talent.
