WODS (103.3 AMP Radio)/Boston names Joe Breezy as its MD/PM drive host. Breezy, who starts on 12/13, most recently was APD/MD/afternoon host at Hip Hop WWVA/Atlanta.

Active Rock WAQX (95X)/Syracuse officially names Joe Detomaso as PD. He had been serving as Interim PD since October. Midday host Detomaso rises from APD/MD, and also hosts 95X's "Saturday Night Scream" Metal show.

Adult Hits WHLK/Cleveland names sister CCM+E Country WGAR PD Charley Connolly as its PD as well. Connolly replaces Tony Matteo, who was recently named OM of CCM+E's Wichita cluster.

Pandora officially launched in Australia and New Zealand on Monday. The popular digital music service has curated genre stations of Australian and New Zealand-specific music across a variety of genres. Pandora Founder/Chief Strategy Officer Tim Westergren said, "After years of preparation and anticipation we are absolutely thrilled to fully launch Pandora internationally in Australia and New Zealand. Personalized radio is a wonderful medium for listeners to enjoy music they know and discover music they'll love. Now we begin the incredibly exciting process of connecting the 100,000-plus working musicians in the Pandora catalog with millions of new listeners. What an amazing opportunity."

The ongoing saga of Jammie Thomas-Rasset's legal battle against file sharing charges continues. CNet reports that her lawyers have filed a petition asking the Supreme Court to review her case, which has spent the past five years moving through the legal system. In September, the Eighth Circuit Court reinstated the fee of $222,000 to be paid to the RIAA. Her lawyers now say the court did not fully consider earlier cases on these kinds of damages.

The New York Post reports that VEVO and YouTube could reach a new agreement by the end of 2012. VEVO's contract with YouTube officially ended on Sunday (12/9), but both sides are reportedly still in talks. The two sides could reach a completely new deal, or simply extend their old agreement. Ad revenue sharing has reportedly been the sticking point all along in the negotiations between the online video sites.

The Conclave has two free webinars on the horizon. The first is this Thursday, December 13, at 2 p.m. CT. Promotions Guru Paige Nienaber will discuss how to capture "The Essence Of The Moment," with ways for stations to acknowledge and react to spontaneous events, and to create structures and systems insuring reactions happen in a timely manner. The second webinar is the announcement of "Using Social Media To Get Hired, v2013" on Wednesday January 9, 2013 at 2 p.m. CT, where Jacobs Media Director Of Digital and Social Strategies Lori Lewis will give recommendations to engage hiring managers into your social media circle increasing your opportunity for that next job.
