Radio News Headlines

 

 
Midday masters of Chicago radio - Here’s a look at Chicago’s most popular midday stars, according to radio ratings released Monday for the period from Feb. 27 to March 26. Robert Feder
 
Bobby Bones - Stalker? Fan? PR Junkie Trying to Ride Kacey's Coattails? - It all started last November, when Bones interviewed Kacey Musgraves before the 2013 CMA Awards. The interview was less than 2 minutes long, but a 20-second segment was played over and over again on his show called, "Is Kacey Musgraves Annoyed?" That 20 seconds made her sound like a jerk who wasn't altogether good at much of anything. Music Times
 
KLLC Extends Morning Co-Host Sarah - “All of us at CBS Radio/San Francisco are pleased to continue our relationship with Sara," CBS Radio/SF SVP/Market Manager Doug Harvill said. "She’s talented, lovely and a joy to be around … and now we’ll have her around for another many more years.” All Access
 
KIIS wins in March; KROQ's 'Kevin & Bean' rules the morning drive - The runner-up during the morning drive was KIIS' "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" with 4.3% of listening. Talk station KFI-AM (640), featuring Bill Handel's show in the key slot, bounced back to No. 3 in the morning after sinking to No. 6 in February. Los Angeles Times
 
Wichita radio personality Tim Peters dies - A station manager said employees became concerned when Peters didn't show up for work this morning. From 1982 to 1997, Peters was part of the top rated morning program on KEYN and KKRD. He left Wichita for radio jobs in Omaha and Kansas City. Peters returned to the Wichita airwaves in 2007, and most recently worked for Lite 99.7 KAKE
 
On-Air Talent Can Drive Stations’ Social Media Engagement - That’s according to a survey by Clear Channel Media & Entertainment. The results suggest that product endorsements by radio DJs are more powerful — and more valuable to advertisers — than sponsored Facebook posts, sponsored Tweets or television spots.  Radio World
 
Chicago boss out at Hubbard Radio  ­ Jerry Schnacke, a highly regarded 17-year Chicago broadcasting veteran, was forced out Monday as vice president and market manager of Hubbard Radio Chicago. Robert Feder
 
Mountain of debt creates a valley of local voices on WSYR radio - Twenty billion dollars is the size of the debt weighing down Clear Channel, the owner of WSYR-AM. The company owns four other stations in our market and approximately 850 nationwide, making it the largest radio group in the U.S. This staggering debt was amassed in 2008 when the hedge funds Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners took the company private just as we entered the Great Recession. Bad timing. Syracuse.com
 
St. Paul radio station another signal of East Side change - The low-powered FM channel is among the first to be licensed in Minnesota, and it aims to be a vehicle for community unity. Star Tribune
 
Satellite Radio Shakes Up Country Star System - While dozens of country artists performed here recently for the nation’s country-radio programmers at an annual gathering, singer-songwriter Cole Swindell played instead at a private show hosted by an unlikely new power broker: satellite-radio programmer John Marks.  Wall Street Journal
 
Why Rock Hall Inductees Are Not Getting The Royalties They Deserve - As we honor those whose music helped shape rock and roll, it is difficult for me to reconcile the fact that some digital radio services have cut off royalty payments to artists' pre-1972 work – which includes work by half of this year’s inductees. Michael Huppe - Billboard Guest Post
 
Austin's newest radio frequency, Fringe - "What does fringe mean?" ponders Program Director Ray Seggern. "It means we're off the beaten path. It says that, relative to the competition, we're slightly off center." Austin Chronicle
 
Falling iTunes Downloads Are Forcing Apple To Reconsider Its Music Business - While total sales of content and apps through Apple's stores were up 19% to $4.4 billion last quarter, sales of music have fallen dramatically. Business Insider
 
US 99.5 adds ‘dynamic personality’ to afternoons - Shila Nathan, a former morning co-host at two stations in Philadelphia, has been named afternoon personality at WUSN FM 99.5, the CBS Radio country music station. Robert Feder
 
IBiquity: 16.5 Million HD Radio-Equipped Cars Are on Road - Some 2,200 U.S. radio stations are broadcasting with the technology. These account for 78% of domestic listening, for an estimated 3.8 billion hours of annual HD Radio listening, according to BIA. Radio World
 
New stars at night on WGCI, V103 - DJ MoonDawg, a rising star among hip hop deejays, has been named host of WGCI’s new evening show from 7 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday. He succeeds Al B. Sylk, who left the station, and Chris Michaels, who shifts to V103. Robert Feder
 
Young, Rich and Ruling Radio, Country Walks a Broader Line - Country has long been a mainstay of American music. But as the music industry continues to struggle financially and once-dominant types of music like hip-hop recede on the charts, country’s audience has grown stronger, wider and younger — a fact that has not escaped the notice of media companies that have invested heavily in the genre. New York Times
