Syracuse Radio: Dick Mastriano RIFed By WSEN

Dick Mastriano
Longtime Syracuse, NY broadcaster Dick Mastriano has been let go from his post as morning host for WSEN Oldies 1050.  Management at the station, owned by Leatherstocking Media Group, confirms for that Mastriano’s duties will be absorbed by another staffer as a result of budget-tightening.

General Manager Don Wagner — who came up through the ranks on programming side of the business, rather than the sales side that produces most GMs — tells, “I would much rather add talent than take it away, however, cash flow is the ultimate decider these days, as it was in this case.”

Mastriano was assigned to the morning shift on what used to be Oldies 1390 (WFBL) in 2009.  Later that year, the station moved down the dial and became Oldies 1050 (WSEN), when Leatherstocking decided to make WFBL the flagship of its three-station, two-market “CNY Talk Radio” network.
