RANDOM RANTINGS: Of Positions and Possibilities
Doug Harvill, who's been running Infinity's six-station radio cluster in town as long as it has existed -- and who comes from humble beginnings as a DJ back east -- is leaving his creation (he'd love that, wouldn't he?) to run the seven stations Infinity owns in San Francisco.
Questions arise: Why does Harvill have to go so fast (he starts TODAY) -- and why did his San Francisco counterpart Doug Sterne leave -- so fast. And, was any of this voluntary on anyone's part? The Informer hears it may not have been, at least at the left end of the deal. And, who will take Harvill's job on a permanent basis? There's lots to do at IBC in Sactown, especially considering one station is facing the loss of its namesake (KHWD-Howard 93.7) and another is looking to renew its affiliation with a certain local hoops franchise.
Speaking of Infinity, we hear that one of that company's Sactown FM's is in the market for a new PM drive assassin -- and that they've been shopping close to home. Could there be a reunion for a popular local afternoon star at a place that used to be familiar?
Inquiring minds want to know....
