For Pete's Sake!

A little more than a week after withstanding the massive company layoffs, Pete Salant, PD at Clear Channel's WWYZ/Hartford has now exited the building.
Salant's contract was apparently not renewed after four years with CC/Hartford, where he programmed WWYZ, WPOP-AM as well as WELI-AM and WAVZ-AM/New Haven. Prior to his Hartford stint, Salant was a self-employed programming consultant for 21 years, after programming WYNY/New York when it was an AC station.
Salant told R&R today, "It’s time for me to reinvent myself again. There are many more opportunities open now than there was when I was consulting." No word so far on who takes the programming wheel at WWYZ.
Meanwhile, Salant can be reached at 203-530-0900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
