He has programmed some of the most successful AC stations in the country," said Jackie Rinker, VP/Market Manager, Clear Channel-Panama City.

Andy Green joins Active Rock WRIF/Detroit as APD/MD, replacing Suzy Cole, who recently left The 'RIF for a position in L.A. with Beats By Dre. Green was previously at Active Rock WGRD/Grand Rapids. His first day in the Motor City will be December 17.
