Report: Jon Marks Booted from CBS Sports Radio Gig by Audacy Brass

Former WIP, Philadelphia afternoon drive sports talk host Jon Marks – who left his daily gig with the Audacy station for personal reasons but planned to continue his weekend work with CBS Sports Radio Network – was ousted from the CBS gig after appearing on a talk show with Crossing Broad’s Kevinim Kinkead and talking about Audacy’s impending bankruptcy. Kinkead reports that Audacy executives weren’t happy with Marks broaching the subject and consequently fired him from the CBS Sports Radio position. Marks told Kinkead, “I am no longer doing CBS Sports Radio because I was terminated by the company following the interview with you…. I wanted to be honest and candid about it. I didn’t rip the company. I wasn’t killing the company. I was very fair and spoke very highly of everybody that worked at WIP, and I wasn’t blaming Audacy (like) it was their fault, I was just talking about the financials of being in the radio business today…” Read the Crossing Broad piece here.
