News Changes at KXSP Eliminate Bill Jensen

[Updated June 6, 11 a.m.]

Just 18 months short of his retirement, Bill Jensen was shown the door Friday at the Journal Broadcast Group, which owns KXSP (590 AM), one of several stations for which Jensen provided news and information throughout the day.

“I think in this business, you always wonder about your job security,” Jensen said. “But what happened is one of the natures of our business. Changes are made and they sometimes involve personnel.”

I hope Bill will continue to work at Rosenblatt, it would be a shame to lose him in that capacity also

Wow, that's shameful. I would be surprised if this benefits Journal's radio stations one bit.

Just 18 months short of retirement. That says it all. Journal should be ashamed. I'd advise any Journal employees nearing retirement to watch their backs.

If they are going away with the radio news dept then what about Craig Evans? Isn't he supposed to be a news hound? hhehehmmmm. You could have Kathy Sarontos Niver do the news on TnT then!!!

Maybe that's the real reason Jeremy got the axe - to save Craig's job...

It's pretty disgusting when a guy with 18 months left before retirement gets dumped.

Bill is a great guy and a great newsman. I hope he finds something in the interim. It was a pleasure to have served as his n.d. for almost 10-years .
at WOW.

For Journal, maybe it should realize people are a company's greatest asset, not pawns.

How about Wexler being canned 18-months before his retirement?

To me, it borders on age discrimiantion. What protects Journal is their departure agreements. Some day, a person is going to say Bull Shit and take them to task!

Jeremy got the axe because he wasnt kissing Tylers ass good enough anymore! Its always all about the ass kissing. If Bill Jensen had been kissing ass harder then he wouldnt of got fired. Why do you thing Todd and Tyler and Travis have such complete job security? Its ass kissing! Ive heard them suck the bosses ass so hard live on the radio that my stomach turned. I could never do it but ass kissing is the name of the game.
