SYRACUSE -- When a broadcast personality is gone for just a week or two, it's usually for a vacation. When it's been about a month -- as has been the case with Classic FM (WCNY-FM) morning host Bill Shedden -- listeners start to wonder if there's been a lineup change. But fans need not worry, as station management tells CNYRadio.com that Shedden will return.
Following-up on a reader tip, we contacted John Tonello, WCNY Vice President of Advancement, Communications and Content Delivery. He says "Bill remains a valued part of WCNY and we are looking forward to having him back on WCNY-FM." Pointing out that Shedden is "a valued WCNY employee entitled to the same workplace privacy as any professional," Tonello declined to elaborate further.
In our efforts to put this story together, we learned former WCNY public relations manager Matt Michael has accepted a position elsewhere. That brings us to point out WCNY currently has not one, but three positions open right now:
Details on all three positions, including requirements and how to apply, are posted on the WCNY website.
