The success of two recent Music Industry Reunions in Los Angeles has prompted organizer Jon Scott to schedule another one, this time in New York City. The Music Industry Reunion is set for Wednesday October 15th, at The Hill Country Barbecue Market 6pm-??? The restaurant is located at 30 West 26th Street and tickets are limited. This is an invitation only party. For information, contact Jon Scott (jonpaulscott@gmail.com) or Greg Lee (socialmediastrategies@gmail.com). The New York Music Industry Reunion organizing committee is: Jon Scott, Greg Lee, Judy Libow, Roxy Myzal, Ted Utz, Wayne McManners, Harvey Leeds, Steve Leeds, Pete Gidion, Jim DelBalzo, Jessie Scott.
          Scott said, ďIíve had numerous calls from music industry friends in New York who asked why donít you have a reunion in the Big Apple? Itís obvious that we as a music industry just donít get together as much as we used to. So my answer is, letís just do it. From early response I can tell itís going to be an incredible event.Ē
          Please join your friends to just laugh, tell some stories, give a hug to old friends and just hang with each other for one night. It's a no host bar and food event. 

Classic Rock WBIG (BIG 100.3)/Washington, D.C. announces that Brent Ebright has been named APD/afternoon host. Ebright has been entertaining audiences for the past two years at Active Rock WRKZ/Columbus. Prior to that he was the PD of Squizz and Boneyard at Sirius XM Radio.
