In celebration of its 45th year as a Rock station, WMMR/Philadelphia will feature music and clips from its archives in April during longtime midday host Pierre Robert's noontime show. The weekends will feature WMMR @ 45
 Flashbacks imaging and many historic highlights. WMMR first signed on the air on April 29, 1968. The first song played by the legendary Dave Herman was "Flying" by The Beatles.

Active Rock WWIZ/Youngstown, OH officially names Matt Spatz as its PD. Spatz had been interim PD in recent weeks, following the exit of Christian Aleshire. Spatz is also PD/morning host at sister Cumulus Classic Rocker WYFM.

In Phoenix, former CHR KZZP PD Tim Richards joins Country KMLE as its new PD replacing Jeff Garrison, who recently went to Country KCYY/San Antonio.

Afternoon talent Fred Winston exits Classic Hits WLS-FM/Chicago, reports Tim Out Chicago's Robert Feder. Filling in for afternonns will be weekend jock Danny Lake.

CodComm has split up its Classic Hits simulcast and launched CHR WHYA/Cape Cod, which will feature Elvis Duran in mornings. The station is also clearing Open House Party which is hosted by CodComm's John Garabedian. Classic Hits will be heard on WFRQ.

Dial Global's consolidation in its Los Angeles area facilities (Valencia and Brentwood) will see some of those operations moved to Culver City. Some of the dayparts that were produced in Valencia, will now be produced in Denver or Dallas. The result of that move: 28 of the 35 on on-air staff based in Valencia have been let go. The remaining staffers will be transferred to Dial Global's Culver City offices. Hot AC & Hot Country host Todd Michaels was among those let go, as was Hot AC host Heidi Selexa.
