KROX's Toby Ryan Running For Austin City Council
February 11, 2011 at 2:42 PM (PT)
EMMIS Alternative KROX (101X)/AUSTIN MD/afternooner TOBY RYAN is running for AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL and temporarily leaving the 101X airwaves. RYAN showed up at AUSTIN CITY HALL this morning (2/11) to file campaign treasurer paperwork for the SPRING elections on MAY 14th vying to make sure AUSTIN remains the coolest and most innovative city in AMERICA.
"The AUSTIN music community needs a stronger voice on the City Council," RYAN told THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE. "Despite that live music is what makes AUSTIN so special, the Council often ignores the concerns of our community, from ever stricter sound ordinances to zoning restrictions that make it near-impossible to open new live music venues. I’m running to help save AUSTIN music."
THE CAMPAIGN KICKOFF FOR TOBY RYAN begins this SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 13th at ANTONE'S with a free performance by ALPHA REV beginning at 4p.

Meanwhile, 101X PD LYNN BARSTOW told ALL ACCESS, "TREVIN from our evening slot is covering PM drive; evenings will be covered by a patchwork of guest hosts and part-time jocks, starting with BLUE OCTOBER's JUSTIN FURSTENFELD next week."
