Radio vet Lee Cagle is named OM of Results Radio’s 5-station cluster in Redding, CA. Cagle will oversee the programming, promotions and production operations for Adult Hits KESR, CHR KEWB, Classic Rock KHRD, Country KNCQ and Sports KKXS. Cagle joins the company in his new role on May 20.

Hot AC WZPL/Indianapolis APD Hunter takes on additional APD responsibilities at Sports WXNT-AM.

After 22 years at Rock WRIF/Detroit, the morning team of Drew & Mike will be saying goodbye next Friday, May 17. The morning show, which includes longtime newsperson Trudi Daniels, is ending after over two decades at the Motor City Rock station. "We would like to thank Drew, Mike, Trudi and the entire team for their many contributions to the station over the years in the Motor City," said Greater Media-Detroit Market Manager Steve Chessare. "They are true professionals and we are very grateful to them." What’s next for mornings at WRIF? Greater Media says to "Stay tuned for an exciting announcement in the very near future!"

At Rock KEGL/Dallas, night host Cindy Scull moves back to mornings, while the syndicated Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx moves to nights.

Benztown Radio Networks is joining forces with Jim Brickman’s Brickhouse Productions to produce the nationally syndicated radio show Your Weekend With Jim Brickman and bring the show to additional markets across the U.S. and Canada through a new production, sales and marketing partnership. The show’s inventory will continue to be cleared by Cumulus Media Networks.

The Parents Television Council, along with a 75-member coalition, has sent a letter to members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce, urging them to oppose the FCC’s proposed changes to broadcast indecency laws. "We are calling on Members of Congress with oversight of the FCC to protect enforcement of the broadcast indecency law. The FCC’s proposal to weaken the law’s enforcement by applying it only to ‘egregious’ violations is absurd, and it must be defeated," said PTC President Tim Winter.
