The hit single “Latch,” which is the debut single from the U.K. based duo, Disclosure featuring Sam Smith, extends its Top 40 chart streak to 25 consecutive bulleted weeks. According to Mediabase, “Latch,” which is currently #4*, is the longest running bulleted Top 40 song ever. With this milestone, Interscope breaks its own Mediabase record which was previously held by Ellie Goulding’s “Lights.” Congrats to the entire Interscope promo squad on yet another chart achievement.

CCM+E Pittsburgh names JD Greene PD/afternoon host of Big 104.7, Pittsburgh’s New Hit Country, effective immediately.

Cumulus appoints 28-year radio veteran Rhonda McCormack as GM at Country KSJO (NASH FM 92.3)/San Francisco. McCormack moves to Cumulus from Clear Channel, where she was VP/Market Manager of its five-station cluster in Monterey/Salinas/Santa Cruz, CA, for eight years.

On August 29th, 1966, The Beatles performed their last official concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.  Therefore, it’s fitting that Candlestick’s last event will be the return of Sir Paul McCartney on August 14th. In honor of this history making performance, KFOG 104.5/97.7 becomes K-PAUL this Thursday. Beginning at 6 a.m. it’s all Paul, all day – with back-to-back McCartney tracks, spotlighting his vast Beatles, Wings and solo catalog. All station assets will change to coincide with the day’s theme – the station’s logo, website (KFOG.com) and on-air features, including the KFOG favorite 10@10, featuring the set list from that 1966 concert.

The 2014 Radio Show, produced by the Radio Advertising Bureau and National Association of Broadcasters, will include a Super Session interview between Dan Harris, co-anchor of ABC's "Nightline" and "Good Morning America" weekend edition, and Alan Mulally, former President and CEO of Ford Motor Company and current Google board member. The Super Session, titled "Executive Future," will occur Thursday, September 11 at 3 p.m.
