Is Clear Channel MainsteamTop 40 WKQI (Channel 95.5)/Detroit considering legal action against Infinity FM talker WKRK? WKQI OM Dom Theodore tells FMQB that he can't comment "due to the pending litigation." Both Gregg Henson and Michelle McKormick allegedly made disparaging comments about 'KQI's night host, Tic Tac, on-the-air and also used his real name. The pair have been off the air since the end of last week (9/28).

Viacom names Jacques Tortoroli SVP, Corporate Controller and Chief Accounting Officer, following the separation of the organization into two publicly traded companies. Tortoroli had previously served as EVP and CFO of Infinity Broadcasting.

Former Wilkes Barre, PA station owner Doug Lane has been sentenced to a minimum of fourteen years in prison on his previous conviction of sexual abuse of young boys. Lane, the former owner of WICK, WYCK and WWBR, was convicted in March on two counts of child molestation and six counts of of possession of child pornography. Lane is expected to file an appeal.

As part of their LMA, Radio One took control of Emmis Adult Standards WRDA/St. Louis on October 1 and promptly changed the format to Urban as The New Hot 104. The station is running jockless and is focusing on hip-hop and R&B.

Gretchen Lancour exits the night gig at KLLC (Alice @ 97.3)/San Francisco.

Andrew "Big Z" Zepeda moves from mornings at KZPT/Tucson to WVKS/Toledo, where he'll co-host with Micki.

WXSS/Milwaukee welcomes Kracker as their new night host. Kracker joins from KUUU/Salt Lake City.

Bonny O'Brien joins the morning team at WRSA (Lite 96)/Huntsville. O'Brien, a twenty-year market vet, is paired with VP/Programming John Malone

With Joe Causi now co-hosting mornings at WNEW/New York, hosting duties for the Saturday Night All Request Dance Party will be in the capable hands of of Big Apple disco maven Paco Navarro. Navarro formerly worked the afternoon shift at the original WKTU/New York in the '70s and early '80s.

E-mail invites from Apple Computer to reporters that said "One more thing..." has fueled speculation that the October 12 announcement could be the long-rumored unveiling of the video iPod.
