CHR WFBC/Greenville APD/midday host Dino is heading to Memphis for the PD job at Clear Channel CHR KWNW(Radio Now). Dino, whose last day at WFBC will be 11/23, begins his new duties at KWNW on 12/1. WFBC PD Chase Murphy comments, "I’ve been fortunate enough to work with him for the last 5 years. We’ve all seen him grow as a talent, programming guy and as a person. I know that he will always consider Greenville home as he and his wife, like many of us, started a family here. It is always wonderful to see the next generation of radio talents move on and accomplish their goals. He will be missed as Dino has been a part of the culture here at Entercom over 6 years."
