Clear Channel Lays Off 200?

There seems to be no exact figures available yet, but Clear Channel is in the midst of laying off "hundreds of staff" in small and medium markets across the U.S. Concept seems to be to use syndicated programming to replace local hosts which, Clear Channel argues, will give them a competitive advantage in these markets. The old Quality v.s. Local argument.

I'm sure many more articles will appear in the days ahead, but here are two of the best to date:
