Dan Donovan Dies - 9/2 - From Tom Taylor Now: Dan Donovan (Blaine Harvey) died Sunday in the Minneapolis area, of a heart attack. He was a link to the later top 40 era when WFIL ruled Philadelphia, and later he presaged the movement of many jocks into hot AC. For Dan, that came in 1979 at hot AC “KS95” KSTP-FM. He later worked at classic hits KOOL 108 KQQL there. But literally millions of folks heard him during his decade on WFIL, where he worked two different times. The second, as Jay Meyers recalls, was for just seven months, after which he settled in the Twin Cities for good. Dan was born in Philly, got his start in Gettysburg at WGET, then moved to York (WSBA), Providence (WICE), Boston (WMEX) and Baltimore (WCBM), before coming home to Philly. His onetime WFIL PD Jay Meyers tells NOW that Dan “was about the shyest person who ever worked for me as a big-time personality jock – he was as different once the mic was on as any human could possibly be”.....

Its programmer Anne Gress tells Now that "Don was a true old-school, big-voiced, sharp-dressed, handsome man - even at 5 AM. He owned this town.

Opie To Continue SiriusXM Show Without Anthony - 7/8 - From thewire.com: On Tuesday, Gregg "Opie" Hughes and Jim Norton announced they will continue the "Opie And Anthony Show" on SiriusXM without longtime partner Anthony Cumia. Cumia was fired from Sirius XM last week. The company cited a series of profane tweets that Cumia posted following an altercation with an African-American woman in Times Square last week, as the reason for the firing. Since that time, fans of the show have been up in arms, speculating about the future of the show, and protesting Sirius XM. A petition was started to reinstate Cumia on the show, Sirius XM headquarters in New York were picketed early Monday morning, and users began posting images of their closed Sirius XM accounts after they unsubscribed on social media.

Cumulus Prepares To Launch NYC R&B Outlet - 6/27 - From Tom Taylor Now: Cumulus aims at Emmis with New York’s new urban adult “Radio 103.9.” Emmis thought it had the urban segment pretty much sewn up, adding urban AC WBLS (107.5) and gospel WLIB (1190) to its own hip-hop “Hot 97” WQHT. That’s probably still true, despite this new challenger from Cumulus. The former north-suburban WFAS-FM Bronxville (103.9) remains a Class A signal, which wouldn’t have been as big a problem ten or 20 years ago. But now the African-American population is more widely dispersed around the Tri-State area, and many won’t be able to pick up the new station. (And we’ll see how much promotion Cumulus puts into the effort.) But the new station does give Reach Media’s Tom Joyner a third shot at the New York market. And it will be a second shot for comedian D.L. Hughley, who like Joyner was previously featured on Emmis’ defunct urban AC “Kiss 98.7” WRKS. Joyner will do mornings and Hughley’s featured in afternoons. There will be some local voices, with Sharon “La Loca” Montero moving from Orlando for middays and Marc Clarke from Washington DC and Howard University’s WHUR (96.3), for a nighttime show named “Hanging Downtown.” Ken Johnson is programming. Cumulus vows “a heavy focus on community engagement.” And no doubt Joyner and Hughley are motivated to make it work, too. They’re coming as part of the Cumulus partnership with Radio One-owned Reach Media. But don’t tune in just yet – “Radio 103.9” doesn’t debut until July 7, and until then it’s still WFAS-FM, “Today’s hits and yesterday’s favorites.” Northeast Radio Watch supplies the new calls for 103.9 – WNBM.....

Kelly, son of then-NYC Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, was never charged and prosecutors dismissed Di Toro's claims.....

WLTW Tops NYC Radio Heap - 6/10 - Analysis of the May radio ratings for NYC from Tom Taylor Now: The giddiness felt around WCBS-FM last month when it was just two-tenths of a share away from WLTW continues, down on Hudson Street – because that’s still just where they stand, 6.8 to 6.6 with total week age 6+ AQH share. CBS Radio’s classic hits WCBS-FM actually edges Clear Channel’s AC “Lite” WLTW in middays. As for ‘PLJ, it’s drifting down. Here’s the three-book trend at the top – Lite goes from a March-book 7.0 to an April 6.8 and now another 6.8 for May. WCBS-FM runs 6.1-6.8-6.8. While former Scott Shannon hangout WPLJ slips 2.4-2.1-2.0. While we’re in that general space, CBS Radio’s hot AC “Fresh” stumbles this month, 3.6-3.5-2.9. Picking up at the #3 slot, YMF-owned/Emmis-managed urban AC WBLS is solid, 5.4-5.5-5.6, tied with Clear Channel CHR “Z100” WHTZ, 5.5-5.6-5.6. It’s bounceback time for SBS-owned Spanish tropical “La Mega” WSKQ, 5.1-4.7-5.1. Nice month for CC’s classic rock “Q104.3” WAXQ, 4.2-4.2-4.4 (a recent high). Emmis' urban “Hot 97” WQHT gives its best performance since June 2011, 3.0-3.1-3.5.....

WBEB Tops Philadelphia Radio Heap - 6/10 - Analysis of the May radio ratings for Philadelphia from Tom Taylor Now: Strong morning numbers with “Preston & Steve” help propel Greater Media’s rock WMMR to a 6-share. It’s up 5.5-5.6-6.0 (compared to a 4.5 in the Holiday book). Up on top is Jerry Lee’s AC “More FM” WBEB, 8.6-8.0-8.0. Second is Clear Channel’s classic hits WOGL, 6.3-5.9-6.3. Then WMMR, closely followed by Beasley’s country WXTU, 5.7-6.1-5.9. Nice bounceback for Clear Channel’s urban AC WDAS-FM, 4.9-4.8-5.7. Big baseball month for Phillies FM flagship, all-sports WIP-FM, 3.6-4.2-4.1. It tops CBS sister all-news KYW, 6.0-4.5-4.0. KYW’s now tied with a very different station – CC’s promotionally-active alternative “Radio 104.5” WRFF, 3.9-4.0-4.0. The Phillies’ AM flagship is CBS’ talk WPHT, which is flat (2.6-2.1-2.1). Philly’s leading talk station is now WHYY Inc.’s non-commercial news/talk WHYY, 2.9-2.6-2.6. There's a substantial cume lead for AC “More FM” WBEB at nearly 1.7 million souls.....

Buyer Of Philly Newspapers Killed In Plane Crash - 6/1 - Lewis Katz and six others were killed Saturday night when their Gulfstream IV ran off the runway and burst into flames in Bedford, Massachuetts. “I heard a big boom, and I thought at the time that someone was trying to break into my house because it shook it,” said Jared Patterson, who lives next to the Hanscom Field runway. “I thought someone was, like, banging on the door trying to get in.” The 72-year-old Katz and business partner Gerry Lenfest gained control of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News, and philly.com on Tuesday after buying out their partners.

Dave Herman Dies In Jail - 5/30 - From Tom Taylor Now: Former New York jock Dave Herman, accused of a pedophilia scheme, dies in jail. The retired WNEW-FM personality apparently had an aneurysm, and died while in federal custody in Newark. He was 78. Herman’s arrest last Fall shocked New Yorkers, and the radio industry. Some of the email evidence released following the arrest suggests that the trial would have brought out some very distasteful stuff. He'd pleaded not guilty and probably would've tried an “entrapment” defense, but was denied bail. Herman, who also spent time in the Virgin Islands, thought he was bringing a seven-year-old girl and her mom to the islands for a sexual encounter. But it was a police sting and he was busted at the airport in St. Croix, last October. Herman was long identified with NYC rocker WNEW-FM, 102.7, from the early 1970s through the late 1990s.....

Connoisseur Gets LI's WALK - 5/16 - From Tom Taylor Now: It’s a 31-station swapfest for Qantum, Clear Channel, and Connoisseur. The three-cornered deal solves problems and meets desires all the way around – it cashes out 12-year-old Qantum, removes two stations from Clear Channel’s Aloha Station Trust after six long years, and gives Connecticut-based Jeff Warshaw at Connoisseur a real prize. That’s the Long Island combo of AC WALK-FM (97.5) and adult standards WALK (1370). Qantum's Frank Osborn calls this “an instance where cooperation among three companies results in higher value for all." Qantum swaps all 29 of its stations to Clear Channel, in exchange for Long Island’s WALK-AM/FM. Qantum immediately sells (not swaps) the WALK combo to Connoisseur. No price announced yet, but this had to involve an intense amount of dealmaking among multiple parties. Those include Jeanette Tully, who’s overseen the various Clear Channel stations held in the Aloha Station Trust since Clear Channel went private in 2008. There’s been pressure on several companies with stations in trusts to clean them up and find buyers. And in Jeff Warshaw of Connoisseur – there’s a very willing buyer for WALK. While Qantum’s Frank Osborn says the eventual deal “was in the best interests of our shareholders".....

Catholic Radio Coming To NYC's 1430 - 4/28 - From Tom Taylor Now: Prayers are answered with Catholic radio’s $10.1 million purchase of NYC’s 1430 AM. This purchase of WNSW Newark by Starboard Media Foundation qualifies as one of the biggest radio deals of the last 12 months – and certainly one of the biggest AM transactions of recent years. It’s a major expansion for Chicago-based Father Francis Hoffman and his Starboard Media colleagues up around Green Bay, Wisconsin. It’s also a format change for WNSW, which will presumably switch from its current Russian-targeted talk to Starboard’s Relevant Radio Catholic talk lineup. WNSW, which runs 10,000 watts daytime and 7,000 watts at night, has been owned since the late 1990s by Arthur Liu-run Multicultural Broadcasting, which acquired then-WNJR Newark as part of a package deal with Heftel.....
