Bill and Bonnie Sacked from KRUZ

I also wanted to acknowledge that Santa Barbara has lost KRUZ's morning show hosts Bill Pesso and Bonnie Campbell (as well as Mandye Thomas). They were class acts and will be missed. Most surprising is that they were told they could stay if they sold advertising -- that's kind of an allegory for the world of radio today, isn't it?

It seems like every three years or so, Santa Barbara has a shift in radio -- we are in one right now with Bill and Bonnie sacked and 1290 AM's News-Press Radio "leasing"-based alliance with our daily newspaper.

Hopefully KCSB radio at UCSB someday can fill in the gap for local news coverage on local radio....
