This is Polly Palmer speaking about TV and Radio news for the week of June 11th, 2012. Enjoy!
I am so pleased to announce the arrival of Steve Clement on March 1 at Clear Channel radio in Phoenix. Steve is transferring from Clear Channel Tucson where he has been the DOS working closely with Shanna McCoy the GM of the Tucson cluster.
Steve is married and has 2 sons, one who will move with Steve and his wife, Margie, and his other son will be attending U of A in the fall as a freshman.
Steve will take over Rachel’s list who was promoted to the LSM of the FM stations in Phoenix.
Please welcome Steve a very familiar face at our past AWRT events and hopefully at our up and coming AWRT events.
Messinger Mortuaries, Paradise Memorial Gardens, and their media partners KOY-AM, KSLX-FM, KFYI-AM, KKNT-AM, and KTAR-FM are doing a cell phone recycling drive to benefit the non-profit, “Cell Phones for Soldiers.”
People who would like to donate old cell phones may drop them off during normal business hours at any Messinger Mortuary location, Paradise Memorial Gardens, Arcadia Tavern, LifeBrokers, participating radio station location, and designated radio station events. For a complete listing of locations see our drop-off locations page.
They will start collecting phones on Monday, October 31st, and continue through Veterans Day, Friday, November 11th.
Cell Phones for Soldiers uses proceeds raised from cell phone donations to buy and distribute calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas, so that they can afford to call home.
Man o’ man there has been a ton of job shifts in the radio business lately. Shuffling at KSLX-FM, Dave Pratt (and his red underwear) at 103.9, etc, etc… View the Pipeline for the latest scoop in Arizona radio and television!
Longtime Sandusky senior radio sales executive Kimberli Rivera resigned from KDKB-FM yesterday, to walk over to Phoenix oldies radio station KOOL-FM. This after a decade’s experience between KDKB and sister station 100.7 KSLX.
Her last day at KDKB is scheduled sometime in the next 2 weeks. We wish Kimberli all the best in her new gig!
