Sarah Fraser is exiting as co-host of Clear Channel's syndicated Kane Show (based at CHR WIHT/Washington, D.C.), to pursue a career in TV. Fraser has been a part of the Kane Show since 2007. Her last day is yet to be determined, but still a few months away.
     CCM+E is now seeking Fraser's replacement as Kane's new co-host. The company is "looking for someone to play a significant on-air role with the current cast, and participate off air as a creative content contributor. The right candidate is outgoing, a social media maniac, pop culture and information junkie, loves being in front of the public, and on stage. If every part of your life is an open book, you’re a strong storyteller, and you never leave a party until you’ve met everyone, we need to hear from you. Are you strongly opinionated, great at communicating that opinion, but open and respectful to the counter point? Then this could be a great fit for you. Outstanding communications skills and a winning attitude are a must!" Applicants should send their airchecks and resumes to Careers@clearchannel.com or Clear Channel Radio Attn: Human Resources - Kane Show 1801 Rockville Pike, 5th Floor Rockville, MD 20852.

Drew Hayes exits the Operations Director post at Talk WLS-AM/Chicago to return to Talk sister KABC-AM/Los Angeles as its new PD, according to Robert Feder of Time Out Chicago. PD Tracy Slutzkin will continue to oversee the programming for WLS.

On Friday, Modern Rock WSUN (97X)/Tampa announced it would be listener-controlled, though the fate of the station's airstaff was unknown. It appears the Morning X show has ended, but Seth, Danielle Belusky and Drew Garabo are all expected to remain with Cox Media's Tampa cluster in other capacities. Garabo already hosts 10a-noon on sister Talker WHPT (102.5 The Bone).

The Grammys are expected to pay tribute to the late Dick Clark at next month's awards ceremony. Grammy exective producer Ken Ehrlich told The New York Post that Clark will be represented in some fashion at the show. Clark feuded with the Grammys for years, filing a $10 million lawsuit against the Recording Academy in 2001 over "blacklisted" artists, and created his own American Music Awards in 1973 after the Grammys left ABC.

SiriusXM and Comedy Central announce a multi-year deal for "Comedy Central Radio," launching on the satcaster this Spring. "Comedy Central is the leader in the world of comedy and we are excited to work with them to create Comedy Central Radio for our listeners,” said Scott Greenstein, President/Chief Content Officer for SiriusXM. "By adding Comedy Central Radio to a comedy lineup that includes Blue Collar Radio and Jamie Foxx’s The Foxxhole, we are delivering unmatched and exclusive comedy programming to millions of listeners nationwide."

Keith Olbermann has made a substantial donation to Cornell University's radio station WVBR, allowing the station to return this fall in its newly built Olbermann-Corneliess Studios. Olbermann requested that the studio be named to honor his late father, Theodore Olbermann, and WVBR colleague and former PD Glenn Corneliess, who passed away in 1996.

FMQB offers condolences to the family and friends of longtime music promotion and marketing executive Bud O'Shea who passed away on Saturday (1/19). O'Shea, whose career spanned three decades, worked for a number of labels including Epic, Infinity/MCA and 20th Century Fox Records.
