Marv Nyren Returns to Chicago

Marv was the GM who fired the show I was consulting (Spike, Dobie & Max) back in 2005. From this morning's RAMP newsletter...

Marv Nyren has left his position as Market President of iHeartMedia Jacksonville and has returned to Chicago, hired by Tribune Broadcasting as Director of Group Sales and Marketing. It's a career homecoming for Nyren, who is probably best known for his seven-year run with Emmis Chicago as GM of WLUP (97.9 The Loop) and WKQX (Q101) until 2011. In February of 2012 Nyren crossed the street to become VP of Affiliate Development/Midwest for Total Traffic Network. He had been in his Jacksonville post since April of 2013. No replacement has been named in Jacksonville.
