In the past couple of days:
* Canton market CHR WZKL/92.5 Alliance ("Q92") picks up a new promotions director. He's Todd Kelly Smith, who comes to the station from Radio One's CHR station in Louisville KY, WDJX. The opening's created by the move of Charlotte DiFranco to an on-air post with morning slammer DeLuca. (OK, maybe no one says "morning slammer", but he used to be a "night slammer" in radio parlance...)
* Clear Channel talk WTVN/610 Columbus producer B.J. Patton becomes the station's traffic director starting in early June. We'll assume that's traffic as in commercials, not traffic as in highways.
And speaking of traffic, as in highways, we just noticed that Clear Channel talk WTAM/1100 Cleveland has a new traffic section on its website, complete with maps and details of traffic troubles, accidents and construction. It's actually pretty good, from what we can see so far. It appears to have been rolled out chainwide by Clear Channel, as there's a pull-down map with many other locations...presumably in markets where the company has launched its own in-house "Total Traffic" service.
The WTAM Cleveland traffic map includes Akron and Canton, by the way...
