A is for abolishing the area's admired Adult Album Alternative (Triple A) station, WNKU-FM.

D.J. Hodge has been promoted to iHeartMedia's Cincinnati market president over WLW-AM, WEBN-FM and four other stations, filling the void from the lay-off of Chuck Fredrick in May.

2:30 p.m. Monday Sept. 11 update: Tracy Jones was let go from WLW-AM Friday afternoon in "a corporate decision over which no one (at the station) had any control," said Bill Cunningham on his show Monday afternoon.

Cunningham told listeners several hours after my blog post Monday that the decision to lay off Jones, the afternoon co-host for nearly 10 years, "had nothing to do with Tracy Jones."
