After 14 years as Positive Alternative Radio (PAR) Joy FM GM/morning host Daniel Britt has exited. Daniel announced he was leaving early last week and his last day on the air was Friday Feb 19th.
Daniel says he will pursue some new opportunities for him that include continuing to be a voice talent, producer in his own production company, working with Pastors, churches, authors, and many other possibilities. Joy FM Morning partner Melody Vaughn will be going solo for a the time being.
Prior to joining PAR Britt was with WRAF/Toccoa Falls, Salem Atlanta, and New Life Radio, Atlanta.
Lori Lewis Media and Rob Wagman’s Straight Path Media + Marketing have formed a partnership. As of March 1st, Wagman begins offering Lori Lewis’ digital marketing and social media engagement skills to his current list of clientele, which includes radio networks, stations, clusters, morning shows, syndicated shows, podcasts and several businesses outside of the broadcast industry. The relationship between Wagman and Lewis started as a faith-based, dual exchange of resources and has turned into weekly marketing and brainstorming sessions with fruitful results beneficial to both consultancies.
“We are like-minded in our faith and both have a passion for the art of genuine engagement.” said Rob Wagman, “Lori Lewis is the best digital media brain in or out of our industry, and as technologies change, she’s ahead of them, because she is everlearning, reading and researching patterns, trends and algorithms. She doesn’t offer tricks or shortcuts, but instead long lasting insights that lay down strong organic foundations for the growth of trustworthy and consistent brands.”
“Simply put, Rob Wagman has vision.” said Lori Lewis, “His custom chart services (Moneyball Charts), getting entrenched in the podcast space early, and his marketing savvy, are a testament to why his consultancy thrives in trying times.”
Neither Lewis nor Wagman see the need of becoming one consultancy, but would “never, say never,” if and when the demand forced their hand.
From CJLF/Barrie ONT (Life 100.3) Scott Jackson checks in with HisAir. Scott says, “Just to clarify, I am still with LIFE 100.3. While I surrendered my position as Station Manager to Steve Jones, I am still part of the Board, I participate in budget development, Sharathon, general problem-solving and of course I continue to host The Retro Show every Saturday.”
January Nielsen PPM numbers will be released starting tomorrow. We’ll see Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and more on Day 1. Christian Radio Ratings are sponsored by Dunham+Company on HisAir.
