Congrats to FMQB alum Ben Harvey, who recently was named PD of SiriusXM's Chill channel. Additionally, Harvey will soon take over as PD of a new music channel to be launched later this year. Harvey also hosts middays on SiriusXM's EDM channel, BPM. He also recently stepped down from on-air duties at CBS Radio CHR WNOW (92.3 Now)/New York to focus on his expanded responsibilities at SiriusXM.

Harris Broadcast CEO Harris Morris will exit the company today, according to reports. The company's new CEO is expected to be named next week.

Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) has re-introduced legislation to cut government funding for National Public Radio. According to Current.org, the language is identical to Lamborn's bill that passed in the House of Representatives in 2011. In a statement, Lamborn mentions NPR's recent move into a new building "partly paid for by taxpayers, many of whom continue to struggle under the worst economy since the Great Depression." However, Current notes that to finance NPR's new building, it used $35.2 million from the sale of its old headquarters  and $165.8 million in tax-exempt bonds, issued with assistance from the government.

Arbitron has announced it will re-issue its Spring Phase-2 Arbitrend data for the Fresno market. In a statement, the company says, "Arbitron has learned that six Spring 2013 Phase 2 Fresno Metro diaries were returned from a media-affiliated household. We have confirmed that these diaries, which were In-Tab for the originally issued Spring Phase 2 Arbitrends data, should not be included in the In-Tab sample. Revised Spring Phase 2 Fresno Arbitrends data, based on an In-Tab sample that excludes these diaries, will release on Monday, July 8, at 12:00 Noon Pacific Time. Audience estimates reported for KJWL-FM and KYNO-AM may be substantially affected. Estimates for KFIG-AM may be affected to a lesser extent. In addition, estimates to stations that were not recorded in the deleted diaries may be slightly affected as a result of sample balancing and reprocessing procedures that accompany deletion of any diary from the sample."
