Caroline Beasley, EVP/CFP of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. has been named the newest Honary Trustee for the Alliance for Women in Media. "This is an incredible honor for me," said Beasley, who joined the company in 1983. "I'm grateful to the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation for the invitation to join such a distinguished group of broadcasting and entertainment professionals. AWM plays a vitally important role in advocating and advancing women in media; I admire their past contributions and accomplishments and very much look forward to helping them ensure that this important mission and message resonates well into the future."

Pascal Nègre, President at Universal Music France, Italy, Middle East and Africa, is promoted to UMG's Global Head of New Business.

Dial Global is winding up its voluntary de-listing from NASDAQ. A statement on the NASDAQ website reads, "Not too long after Oaktree's $71.3 million purchase, Dial Global announced its decision to voluntarily delist from NASDAQ. The company's board reached the decision through consideration of several factors including the relatively limited historical trading volume of the company's common stock, the compliance costs from maintaining its NASDAQ listing, and the applicable laws and rules from the federal government and the exchange itself, among other things."

Due to cuts at Dial Global, Imaging Director Bob Karson has exited. Karson and his company KARSONproductions are based in Denver, and ready to take on new radio imaging, film, video, retail, industrial and web-based projects and can be reached at bob@bobkarson.com.

BMG Chrysalis U.S. has reached a broad agreement with NYC-based dance music label Strictly Rhythm. Under the arrangement, BMG will acquire the masters catalog of Strictly Rhythm and will administer the music publishing rights worldwide.

FMQB offers condolences to the family and friends of mixer DJ Trauma (Stephen Seravalli) who died suddenly over the weekend. Trauma, who had been working at Rhythmic KKFR/Phoenix, passed away after contracting severe flu-like symptoms while visiting Tampa.
