Radio host and former Channel 3 (KCRA) television news anchor Walt Gray said he was laid off from 96.9 The Eagle today at 10 a.m. after finishing his weekday radio show.
"There were a number of people across the station who were let go today - good people in several departments," he said.
Managers at The Eagle, a classic rock station owned by Entercom, did not respond immediately to requests for comment.
"They're cutting costs," Gray said. "They have to do what they feel is right for them going forward. ... I wish it could have gone differently."
Gray joined The Eagle on Oct. 22 to co-host a classic rock show. Previously he worked at Channel 3 for 25 years.
"I would love to remain in broadcasting, certainly," Gray said. "Television has always been a favorite."
