Hancock, Shannon, Galluzzi join digital station

Digital radio station ClickRadio, set to launch in April, named its music programming team on Tuesday, including jazz musician Herbie Hancock, radio personality Scott Shannon and former MTV exec Patti Galluzzi.

The team was brought together by Charlie Kendall, vice president of entertainment programming at ClickRadio and former program director at WNEW in New York.

While company execs are keeping mum on the specific technology of the company until the launch, Kendall promised ClickRadio will be a customizable radio that will be available to listeners both on- and off-line.

“We’re going to give the listener a basic place to start,” Kendall said. “It’s smart radio; it’s free and it will adapt to the listeners’ taste.”

Kendall said all genres of music will be available over ClickRadio, and he tried to structure the programming team to reflect the diversity of the music offerings.

Besides Hancock, Shannon and Galluzzi, programming execs include Max Tolkoff, host of syndicated radio show “Modern Rock Live”; Dan Neer, whose production company Neer Perfect produces syndicated programs for NBC Radio Entertainment; Tony Gray, president and CEO of programming consulting firm Gray Communications; Jim Wood, president of consulting firm Jim Wood Enterprises; and Sal D’Aleo, production director for WNEW.
