Scotty Finck
Congratulations to Hollywood Records VP/Promotion Scotty Finck on his promotion to the SVP of Promotion post for the Disney Music Group. Finck, who will begin his 15th year with the company in March, fills the void left with the departure of Justin Fontaine. Finck will report to Disney Music Group EVP/Marketing Ken Bunt.

Greater Media-Boston has flipped the 96.9 format again, as the station becomes Classic Hits "Mike 96.9 - Playing Anything We Feel Like." This is the third different format for the frequency this week since flipping from Talk WTKK earlier this week. The station was "Power 96.9" on Wednesday and EDM-centric "NOVA 96.9" on Thursday. It is unknown if the format wheel will continue to spin next week or when Greater Media will reveal the final fate of the 96.9 frequency. For now, you can hear Mike 96.9 at 969mikefm.com. An announcement from Greater Media merely says once again that "We'll have more surprises throughout the upcoming days!"

Sarah Lee Owensby is exiting her role with Orlando & The Freakshow on Rhythmic WLLD/Tampa. Owensby will be moving to Los Angeles to be with her fiancee, Rob Wagman, who recently joined Contemporary Christian KFSH/Los Angeles for afternoons.
