Marc Rivieccio has been promoted to Director of Marketing for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment-New York.  In his new role, he will oversee all marketing and promotions for CCM+E-New York’s six stations and will manage the planning and execution of all major station events including Z100’s Jingle Ball, KTUphoria and 106.7 Lite fm’s Broadway in Bryant Park. Rivieccio will lead the New York cluster’s marketing and promotions team and work closely with the sales department to coordinate third party opportunities to drive sales. Rivieccio has been with Clear Channel New York since 1999 when he started as an intern at WKTU. Since then he has worked his way up holding a variety of positions – most recently Director of Promotions for all of Clear Channel-New York’s events. Rivieccio has led the operations for the iHeartRadio Theater presented by P.C. Richard and Son since its grand opening in 2009 and has been a key member of the planning and on-site execution team for the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Rivieccio will report to Thea Mitchum, VP of Programming for CCM+E-New York.

Arbitron and Nielsen have given the FTC more time to review their merger. A statement from both parties says that they have "agreed to voluntarily provide the FTC with additional time in which to review the proposed merger of TNC Sub I Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nielsen, with and into Arbitron." The statement adds that "Nielsen, as the acquiring party, will withdraw and refile its pre-merger notification and report form under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act ("HSR"), which will restart the 30-day time frame for initial review of the transaction. The waiting period for the new filing will expire at 11:59 p.m. on March 8, 2013, unless earlier terminated by the FTC, or the FTC makes a formal request for additional information prior to the expiration of the waiting period."

The legal battle between SiriusXM and A2IM was settled and dismissed last Thursday. A2IM says the settlement reaffirms the organization's First Amendment rights to express its opinions about SiriusXM and its licensing agreements. A2IM adds that it will continue to freely council its members on royalty agreements, and notes, "while the statutory rate has ensured equitable treatment for independents, each music label must determine for themselves their own promotional and commerce plans and that we respect that independent entrepreneurial spirit. We’ll just suggest to our members that before agreeing to any direct licenses they should please consider all factors and their effects on their music label’s results, now and in the future, and make an educated decision."

Hard rock label Century Media launches its own Spotify app, featuring playlists created by artists from the Century Media family.
