Tamo Sein
CCM+E Modern Rock WRXL (XL102)/Richmond, VA names Tamo Sein as MD/afternoon drive host, effective March 26. Sein joins XL 102 from CHR KCLD/St. Cloud, MN; where she served as MD/night host. She has also spent time at KGSR and KROX in Austin, as well as WROX/Norfolk, VA. "I'm thrilled to come home to rock the Richmond airwaves on XL102," said Sein. "This is an incredible opportunity and I can't wait to join the XL crew." "We received some amazing submissions from many talented people across the nation, but Tamo stood out as an absolute star," said PD Dustin Matthews. "Her work ethic and ability to connect with the audience will make her a true asset to not only the evolution of XL102, but the forward thinking of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment-Richmond."

Kevin Conklin joins Rock KDKB/Phoenix and will team up with Schmonty in mornings, effective April 11. Conklin comes on board from KCLB/Palm Springs where he was APD/MD/afternoon drive host.

FCC Commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai will be featured in the session "Straight Talk From the Top – America’s Communication Regulators" on Tuesday, April 9 at 10:30 a.m. (a change from the previously posted 2:30 start time) during the 2013 NAB Show in Las Vegas. During the session, NAB COO Chris Ornelas will lead a discussion with the Commissioners on regulatory issues facing broadcasters. As previously announced, Commissioner Pai will also lead a session on AM radio revitalization at NAB Show on Monday, April 8 at 3:00 p.m.

More co-sponsors have been added to the proposed legislation against a potential "performance royalty" on radio. Sens. Michael Enzi (R-WY), Martin Heinrich (D-NM) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) are now co-sponsors of the Local Radio Freedom Act in the Senate. Reps. Rodney Davis (R-IL), Tom Latham (R-IA), Adrian Smith (R-NE) and Richard Hudson (R-NC) are now co-sponsors of the House version of the resolution. Earlier this week, it was reported that over 100 members of Congress had signed on to support the legislation.

Pandora has now released an app for the Windows 8 phone, and the digital music service says the app will remain ad-free for the rest of 2013.

After a decade of service, Dr. Frank Wright, National Religious Broadcasters President/CEO, will step down from his position in October.
