Dial Global's consolidation in its Los Angeles area facilities (Valencia and Brentwood) will see some of those operations moved to Culver City. Some of the dayparts that were produced in Valencia, will now be produced in Denver or Dallas. The result of that move: 28 of the 35 on on-air staff based in Valencia have been let go. The remaining staffers will be transferred to Dial Global's Culver City offices. Hot AC & Hot Country host Todd Michaels was among those let go, as was Hot AC host Heidi Selexa.
