Here are the newest Cumulus stations who who've adopted the Country NASH format: KAMO/Fayetteville, KXKC/Lafayette,  WMDH/Muncie, WLFF/Myrtle Beach, WFYR/Peoria and WJCL/Savannah.
 
Michael O'Neill, SVP/Repertoire & Licensing at Broadcast Music, Inc., is appointed CEO succeeding President/CEO Del Bryant who announced his retirement in May after 41 years with the company.

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has announced additional enhancements for the iHeartRadio Talk iOS and Android mobile apps. The updated apps will feature a directory for Talk that now allows users the ability to browse and select from hundreds of programs. The mobile app update will also feature a more user-friendly side navigation pull-out screen with an easily accessible "presets" section for quick access to the listener's saved Live, Custom and Talk Station favorites. Additionally, users will be able to browse by category. The iOS mobile update is available today for the iPhone and iPod, with Android following on September 12 for phones and tablets, including the Kindle.
     "Since launching in July, iHeartRadio Talk has already demonstrated that it's an important source of information for the on-the-go consumer, with 60 percent of Talk users accessing via their mobile devices ­ and that has been with very limited mobile functionality," said Brian Lakamp, President of Digital for CCM+E. "During beta, we have received a lot of feedback to make our Talk feature more accessible via mobile, and now we are able to provide that. Our users will also notice even more Talk functionality coming to our apps in the near future."

Microsoft expands the Xbox Music streaming service, with new apps now available for the iOS and Android mobile platforms, as well as free streaming access via the Web. Xbox Music was previously only accessable to Windows users.
