According to The Chicago Sun-Times, at sister Classic Rocker WLUP (The Loop), "Crazy Ray" Styles exits overnights.

Monte Malone joins A&R Worldwide as Director/Artist Development & 360 Marketing.

 

After a year and a half, The Washington Post is ending its Washington Post Radio experiment in the nation's capital. The WTWP simulcast will no longer be carried on two Bonneville stations as of the end of September, though the stations will remain News/Talk formatted.

 

Rolodex Alert: Effective Thursday (8/30), Jive Records will now be located at 550 Madison Ave., 13th & 14th Floors, New York, NY 10022.
