In unsurprising news, the Dallas Morning News reports that General Manager Sarah Colmark is out after only 19 months at WRR in Dallas:
Colmark, a classically trained pianist who went to work at her dad’s Albuquerque radio station in 2008, came to Dallas in January 2012… The city said at the time that her pay would be based in part on an “incentive” tied to “specific benchmarks of operating revenue.” But as the Dallas Observer notes today, per a memo sent to the council last month, the city-owned radio station’s expected revenue is down $611,000 due to lack of ad sales.
… in February the Observer noted a “bloodletting” at the station, as jocks and sales staff were either fired or left of their own volition. Exiting staffers painted a bleak picture at WRR…
Colmark needs to find a profession more compatible to her skill set. She’s shown up on this blog before.
