SYRACUSE -- We first heard of the passing of voiceover great Brian James last week, but it's just been brought to our attention that 93Q (WNTQ) was among James' many clients across the country.
SYRACUSE -- 93Q and Hot 107.9 are catching the attention of the local news media, for openly asking listeners if they should consider pulling songs by Chris Brown off their playlists. The 19-year-old star hasn't been charged, but is being investigated for allegedly assaulting girlfriend and fellow star Rihanna.
SYRACUSE - Just a few days after 93Q (WNTQ) spent a week celebrating the 20th anniversary of "Ted & Amy in the Morning," the station has taken longtime midday jock Big Jim Donovan off the air. Management hopes it's a "temporary situation." UPDATE 11/19 - Big Jim doesn't seem to think it's temporary.
95X has a new program director, and like the other rock stations in town, it's a lady that's running the show. Alexis, a 13-year veteran of the active rock station, slides into the slot left vacant by Bob O'Dell's exit in August. She also picks up the 3-7 p.m. afternoon drive on-air shift.
