Qtip Johnson Joins America’s Morning Show

Cumulus announces that America’s Morning Show hosted by Blair Garner has signed on new Executive Producer Glenn “Qtip” Johnson. He takes the producing reins starting June 15.

Johnson most recently hosted mornings on WCYQ/Q100 Country in Knoxville, Tenn. for Scripps Broadcasting. Prior to that, he was morning host (as “Qtip”) for Cumulus Top 40 station WABD in Mobile, Ala. He also hosted the morning show for Dittman Broadcasting’s WABB in Mobile.

Americana Airplay Chart

Nash Country Weekly is now publishing the Americana Airplay Chart in its magazine. The Americana Airplay Chart sits prominently on the weekly chart’s page, alongside Billboard’s Top 10 Country albums and singles and the Top 10 CMT and GAC videos.

“We are excited to have our chart included in the premiere edition of Nash Country Weekly,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. “It’s a fantastic contrast to the mainstream commercial names you will see on other charts. The Americana Airplay Chart represents a diverse array of American roots music styles and is probably the only chart where country music enthusiasts can find Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Mavericks, Dwight Yoakam, Asleep at the Wheel celebrating the music of Bob Wills, and Eilen Jewell all on the same page.”
