Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. When it comes to business, you never know how your past connections may factor into opportunities down the road. Just ask former Entercom Radio executive Michael Doyle. 

More than three decades after graduating from SUNY Brockport, Doyle recently returned to his alma mater to run its business school. In hindsight, it’s an opportunity that his former positions at Entercom Radio and News Radio 810 WGY prepared him for. 

Doyle recently told Brockport Today that he’s excited about the opportunity to lead a school that has garnered state-wide recognition for its ties to the local business community. Doyle told the paper that he plans to put students in a position to gain real-life experience in the business world. 

“I can engage business leaders about the needs of the community,” he said. “That’s one of the things that I can bring to the table to make sure we have those great connections with the business community at large.”

Doyle served as the regional president of Entercom Communications. He managed many of the broadcaster’s major markers including stations in Rochester and Buffalo, NY. Doyle has taken active roles in supporting the school’s mission of preparing students for life after college. 

In the past, he’s served on the Brockport Foundation Board of Directors. According to the school’s website, the board is made up of volunteers who are staunch supporters of the college and its mission. The board oversees financial management and investment of gifts. 

“You know there are similarities in running a business and running a school,” stated Doyle. “You know in terms of the problems that you can find in any business situation that are applicable to the challenges that you face in running the School of Business and Management.” 

Doyle accepted the role of Dean for the School of Business and Management after retiring as the President of Sales Operations for Entercom Communications. 

“The reality is, it was intriguing to me because it was so different from anything I ever did in my career and it’s a challenge. And I love a challenge,” he added.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
