Radio Disney to shut down stations and lay off staff members|Doing Stuff with Kids. Since September 26, Radio Disney will just own one radio station in the United States-- its flagship station KDIS-AM 1110 in L.a. The other 23 stations across the country will be sold and 184 jobs will be cut from the stations, advertisement sales and operations. Radio Disneys nationwide team will take over operations of the L.a station, which will certainly supply all content after the sale. Disney states most consumers are getting their media digitally and only 18 percent of listeners listen to the radio broadcasts live. Phil Guerini, Radio Disneys General Manager, said, Radio Disney will certainly be increasing financial investment in both digital distribution platforms and music-centric shows.
