CBS Radio announces it has just signed its 300th affiliate for the CBS Sports Radio network. CBS Sports Radio has more than tripled its reach since the new venture was announced with programming available in all of the Top 10 and 35 of the Top 50 markets across the United States.
     "Hitting the 300 affiliate mark in less than a year is a significant milestone and testament to the overwhelming love of, and support for sports radio in this country," said Chris Oliviero, CBS Radio SVP of Programming. "We’ve always been of the mind that if you provide listeners with superior content from knowledgeable talent, adoption will surely follow, and with CBS Sports Radio, we have that perfect combination of well-known and respected sports enthusiasts, superstars and analysts.  Sports talk is truly the new national pastime that continues to engage with a broad spectrum of involved fans across a myriad of platforms, and we are proud, along with our terrific and supportive affiliate base, to be an active part of this daily conversation across the nation."

Ben Swanson, Chris Swanson and Darius Van Arman (all partners in the Dead Oceans, Jagjaguwar and Secretly Canadian labels) are each joining Numero Group ownership as partners. Numero Group will retain a unique marketing and A&R staff in Chicago, handling all creative and marketing aspects of the label, while Dead Oceans, Jagjaguwar and Secretly Canadian’s global A&R and marketing team will remain focused solely on those three labels.

BIA/Kelsey announces two promotions, as analyst Michael Boland is named VP of Content and analyst Jed Williams becomes VP of Consulting. In addition, veteran digital media executive Warren Kay has joined the firm as executive-in-residence.
