United Stations Radio Networks, Inc. announces that the Dave & Jimmy Morning Show has been added to the on-air lineup at Clear Channel Media + Entertainment CHR WVRT (V-97)/Williamsport, PA. The Dave & Jimmy Show originates at its flagship station, CHR WNCI-FM/Columbus.

Modern Rock KYSR (98-7fm)/Los Angeles announces the debut of its new weekly specialty show Diplo & Friends, featuring acclaimed producer/DJ Diplo. The show will air from 10-11 p.m. on Friday nights starting tomorrow (11/1), featuring indie rock, hip-hop and dance music all curated by Diplo himself. PD Julie Pilat says, "Diplo is one of the most influential music tastemakers of this decade. We met originally through Major Lazer and stayed in touch, talking music, via Social Media. When I found out he moved to LA and is a huge fan of 98-7fm, we immediately began discussions for this show.  I basically said – ‘come do a show... jack my signal…I trust you!' As our vision for Diplo & Friends (an eclectic mix of music from The xx to Grimes, Rick Ross to Sleigh Bells and more) unfolds, listeners can expect to hear creative musical genius every Friday night on 98-7fm."

After 18 months living the life of leisure, format vet Dave Benson resurfaces in Charlottesville, VA as GM/PD of non-comm WNRN. "I finally found a radio station and a locale with the right combination of ingredients," says Benson "I want to work in a creative community environment where our connection with listeners is more immediate and not distorted by the ratings game. WNRN has a unique pedigree and committed staff and board of directors. I'm here to learn and help and play good music. All in one of the best cities in America." You can contact Benson at dbenson@wnrn.org.

Harvey Kojan has exited as PD of Classic Hits WZBA (100.7 The Bay)/Baltimore after three and a half years on the job.

Entercom announces that General Counsel/EVP Jack Donlevie will retire from the company in 2015 and step down as General Counsel effective January 1, 2013. Donlevie will maintain his current position as EVP and continue to work full-time for Entercom on a broad spectrum of issues, gradually scaling down his responsibilities until his retirement date.  In this transition, Andrew Sutor, Entercom’s current VP/Corporate Counsel, will be promoted to SVP/General Counsel, effective January 1, 2013.

Clear Channel's iHeartRadio launches "Stronger Than Sandy Radio," a new digital station inspired by listeners' suggestions for songs to get them through the hurricane aftermath. Clear Channel is also actively encouraging listeners to donate to the Red Cross and visit www.redcross.org.
