In wake of lawsuit, Intern Adam loses a job

Local radio personality Adam Davis and station WRVW-107.5 The River have parted ways in the wake of a lawsuit filed by Davis against the Nashville Predators, radio industry news outlet AllAccess reported yesterday.

Davis, better known as Intern Adam, sued the Predators in August, claiming they were responsible for a broken ankle he sustained during a “human hockey puck” stunt. According to AllAccess, Davis hasn't been on the radio in the nine weeks since he filed the lawsuit.

“It's been a very emotional nine weeks being in limbo and not knowing my future,” Davis told AllAccess. “But now it's certain that I can find a microphone somewhere else, be it in Nashville or wherever, and continue to bring the entertainment that Intern Adam has provided for years.”

The Predators challenged Davis's lawsuit, claiming he failed to take “reasonable and ordinary care” for his safety during the stunt. The Predators included a jury demand in their response to the lawsuit.

No further filings have taken place since the Predators' response.

Big Machine, Clear Channel to partner in terrestrial broadcast revenues effort

Big Machine Label Group and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announced today an agreement that will align their business interests and accelerate growth and innovation in digital radio to the benefit of music fans and radio listeners.

Big Machine, which recently announced a rebranding, will become the first record company to directly participate in Clear Channel’s terrestrial broadcast revenues. Artists including Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts are expected to benefit from the arrangement.

“Today, 98 percent of our listening is terrestrial broadcast and 2 percent digital — with record labels and artists only paid for the 2 percent,”  John Hogan, chairman and chief executive officer of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, said in a release. “This new agreement expands label and artist participation from just digital to terrestrial broadcast radio revenues in one comprehensive framework that will give all of us a great incentive to drive the growth of the digital radio industry and allow everyone to participate financially in its growth. This market-based solution helps bring the best in music to radio listeners wherever they want to hear it.”
