THIS JUST IN: CC Akron/Canton Market Manager To PA

OMW hears that long-time Clear Channel Akron/Canton market manager Dan Lankford has left the building at Freedom Avenue, bound for a new job in Pennsylvania.

Lankford is heading for a new job as market manager of Clear Channel's Harrisburg/Allentown PA stations. And by heading, we mean he's expected to start today.

At Freedom Avenue, Lankford has been in charge of five stations - hot AC WKDD/98.1, rock WRQK/106.9, AC WHOF/101.7, talk WHLO/640 and sports WARF/1350.

In addition to those stations, Lankford has also been market manager of Clear Channel's Ashland/Mansfield cluster.

At this point, we have no word of any replacement back at Freedom Avenue.

I wonder if former Cumulus Toledo Mkt Manager, Nick Gnau, now Mkt Manager with CC over Lima/Mansfield will jump to Akron? Gnau spent 17 years with the Jacor/CC Dayton cluster. He's a Rocky River native.
