With the departure of Jerry Kersting for Tribune Company, Clear Channel has reworked the chain of command for some of the people who used to report to him. For many RBR/TVBR readers, the most important is the person now designated to handle radio acquisitions and divestitures at Clear Channel. That is Dirk Eller, VP of Corporate Development. Sharon Blankenship, President of LAN International, the Clear Channel-owned sales management software company, will now report to Premiere Radio Networks President Charlie Rahilly. Likewise, RCS President Phillipe Generali now reports to Rahilly.
