The fire sale continues: J.J. Jackson exits mornings at Country/WBTU (93.3fm, Kendallville) for Metro Networks' office in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Where are they now? AllAccess tells us that former Urban/WJFX (107.9fm, New Haven) PD Michelle Price is off to Toronto to be the PD of the new 93.5fm (which has yet to sign on or get call letters.)


John Vance returns to Rock/WAOR (95.3fm, Niles, Michigan) as morning man. He'll be joined by Gary Hegland. Vance worked at WAOR in the early 1990's.

Joining APD/MD Lisa Kosty for mornings at Country/WBYT (100.7fm, Elkhart) is Tom Scott. Scott arrives in Michiana from legendary country station WOW-FM in Omaha, Nebraska, where he was APD/morning co-host.

A.J. arrives as the new imaging director for CHR/WNOU (93.1fm, Indianapolis). He arrives from WKRQ in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Shane Williams moves from promotions to sales at CHR/WZPL (99.5fm, Greenfield). Williams was a promotions assistant, coordinating remotes.

A quick note from the "radio-with-pictures" department: ShopTalk informs us that Carolyn Williams arrives at NBC affiliate WTHR (Channel 13, Indianapolis). Williams will be the Assistant News Director. She arrives from KOTV in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


Returning to Soft AC/WWWY (104.9fm, Columbus) is Rick Reed. Reed will handle mornings, a position he left in March, to do afternoons at sister Country/WJCP (92.7fm, Austin).


Jimmy Ocean, afternoons & APD at CHR/WSTO (96.1fm, Owensboro, Kentucky) exits for WKFS in Cincinnati, Ohio. Also exiting is midday guy (and Music Director) Cat Michaels who heads for the Clear Channel stations in Louisville, Kentucky. IRW hears that PD Dr. Dave Michaels is actively looking for replacements...

That's it for this issue! See you in two weeks...
