Scotty and Alex join WYSP (Free FM)/Philadelphia for 7-11 p.m. weeknights, beginning this Monday, November 20. The duo join YSP from WJSE/Atlantic City, where they held down mornings. "Having grown up near the Philadelphia area, WYSP was THE station that we always aspired to join," said Scotty and Alex. "Philadelphia's Free FM has such a strong lineup that it truly is an honor to join such a legendary station and be surrounded by such great personalities." Current night personality Couzin Ed exits.
 
Courtney Quinn rises from APD/MD to PD of WLZX (Lazer 99.3)/Springfield, MA. OM Neal Mirsky says, “To say that Courtney’s contributions over the past two years played a big part in Lazer just getting its best ratings in the stations history would be an understatement. In the time that she has been here, she has earned the reputation as one of the brightest Active Rock MDs and APDs in the country. I truly feel that this move is the next natural step in the evolution of both the radio station and Courtney’s career.”
 
Clear Channel CHR WFKS (97-9 Kiss-FM)/Jacksonville names Jonathan Reed APD/afternoon drive personality. Reed will be in place on November 27. Reed joins from sister CC CHR station WRVQ (Q94)/Richmond. "I feel like I'm on a roll in the fall of '06! Being a lifelong Cardinals fan, I have seen the World Series Championship, and now I get to kick ass and work with Todd Shannon. If you want my advice, bet on Michigan over Ohio State," said Reed.
 
Terry Simmons, OM/morning co-host at Hot AC WHBC/Canton exits.
 
Tad Lemire takes the morning show gig at Hot AC WSNE/Providence. Lemire, who replaces Joan Edwardsen, joins from a similar post at crosstown WCTK.
 
On Tuesday, November 21, WLUP/Chicago night host Byrd begins a twenty-four hour hunger strike to collect frozen turkeys as part of the twenty-fourth annual "Sharing It Day," the official launch of the holiday food drive that benefits 90,000 hungry children, men and women served weekly by the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
