“Doc” Walker, Who Worked at WTEM for 27 Years, Among Layoffs at D.C. Radio Station

by | Nov 23, 2020

In the first big move since WJFK (106.7 FM) and WTEM (980 AM) became partners in a radio station swap this month, “three well-known figures were laid off from their roles at the Team 980: hosts Rick “Doc” Walker and Scott Linn and program director Chris Johnson,” reports The Washington Post.

At 980, Walker hosted “Doc & Galdi” with Al Galdi, and Linn worked with Brian Mitchell and Steve Czaban on their shows from noon to 7 p.m. Johnson will continue to produce Washington Football Team game broadcasts as an independent contractor for WTEM as he has since 2018, continued The Post’s post.
Walker, a former tight end for the former Washington Redskins, had worked at the D.C.-based radio station for 27 years and Linn had been with the station since 1993.
This month, Entercom and Urban One made a swap involving six stations across four markets, states The Post, and the move, “which had been in the works since July but was announced Nov. 5, netted Entercom the Team 980, a competitor of 106.7 the Fan, which Entercom already owned. WTEM’s FM station, 95.9, was not included in the swap, and there is no plan for Entercom to air WTEM content on an FM station.”
