Scott Shannon -- an interesting turn

So a few weeks ago Scott Shannon announced that her was 'retiring" from WPLJ, that "Scott & Todd in the Morning" was about to become "The Todd Show". Scott said he wasn't retiring from radio altogether, that he would still do his weekly syndicated show and his announcing gigs on WOR.

After he left, rumors began to circulate that he didn't choose to go, that he was forced out.

So "The Todd Show" debuted yesterday. I think Todd Pettengill is a comic genius, but he no longer has a partner, just underlings, and without Scott the show just isn't as good.

And today's news? Scott will be doing morning drive time on WCBS-FM starting next week.

That's right, in direct competition with Todd.


Should be interesting.

The radio biz usually has a 'golden parachute', in which they pay an outgoing popular drive-time jock for 6 months to a year to keep them off the airwaves.

Interesting that this didn't happen. WCBS scored a major coup!

Seems PLJ was trying to cut costs. I used to listen to Shannon on Z109. I like Pettingill, but so far I am not impressed with the Todd Show. We shall see . . .
