The gang at TRIBUNE continue to both add former CLEAR CHANNEL people -- and have more fun with their announcements than anyone else. The latest from them reads:
"WIKIPEDIA says, 'The JACOR name is retired from broadcasting,' but the roaring bark of JACOR’s mascot bulldog is being heard loud and clear in CHICAGO. That bark added more bite this week when TRIBUNE INTERACTIVE President MARC CHASE named JANA GAVIN Sr. Director/Business Development for TRIBUNE INTERACTIVE."
"GAVIN is part of a growing team of JACOR veterans now working for TRIBUNE, which includes CHASE, SEAN COMPTON (SVP/Programming for TRIBUNE BROADCASTING), STEVE GABLE (Chief Technology Officer), RUSS GILBERT (VP/Digital Innovation) and Special Consultant ROY LAUGHLIN. SAM ZELL owned JACOR COMMUNICATIONS and RANDY MICHAELS, TRIBUNE COO, ran the media corporation from 1993 to 1999."
