I was out for two weeks. Here’s a quick summary of things I missed and so may have you:
- Melissa Carter, who stepped down from Q100’s Bert Show last year, has decided to get back into radio: she is now the afternoon host at All News 106.7, owned by the same company, Atlanta-based Cumulus Media. She can be heard from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays.
“It is nice to be in a newsroom, rather than the only news person,” she wrote to me via Facebook. “And I must say I do NOT miss the 3:30am alarm!”
Ratings for the all-news station in its first month were modest and a big drop off from its predecessor Atlanta’s Greatest Hits. In June Arbitrons, the station garnered a 1.1 share (22nd place) compared to 2.9 (16th place) in May when it was a music station.
- Monica Pearson is ending her incredible 37-year run at Channel 2 Action News on Wednesday at 6 p.m. She made the announcement earlier
