Milt McConnell resigns form the Market Manager post at Cumulus-Albuquerque. He will exit the cluster on January 31.

At noon last Friday (1/18), a group of Clear Channel CHR WHQC (Channel 96-1)/Charlotte listeners descended on the 6,000 lower level seats at Time Warner Cable Arena in search of 25 hidden envelopes. Three of the envelopes contained Justin Bieber tickets and meet & greets for his show tomorrow night (January 22). Moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and students raced aisle-to-aisle seat-to-seat around the Arena in hopes they would find an envelope while their friends and family held signs and cheered them on. "It was awesome!," said WHQC PD Boomer. "This was an amazing event because we know how passionate the Beliebers are. We wanted to give them a fun and exciting way to get tickets into the show." The seat search was emceed by Channel 96-1 morning show hosts Ace & TJ. "I almost got trampled! My job has become too dangerous," said TJ. Check out some video and pictures of all the madness here.

After barely two weeks in mornings at Triple A WDST/Poughkeepsie-Woodstock, NY, Bob Wohlfeld's "Wakin' Up With The Wolf" is canceled, with Greg Gattine back in AM drive. WDST Owner/President said on the station's Facebook page that the change was due to listener response.

In a new filing with the SEC, Arbitron invites its shareholders to formally approve the company's merger with Nielsen. A special meeting of Arbitron stockholders is slated for the Four Seasons hotel in New York, at a date to be announced.

Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom has launched his newest file-sharing site, simply called Mega. The site is expected to offer 50GB of free storage for users, with multiple tiers of pricing for additional storage and encryption of files. One year ago, Megaupload was taken down by authorities, alleging that the site illegally cost copyright holders hundreds of millions of dollars. Dotcom told Reuters that his new endeavor is legal and legitimate.
