Holland Takes WFUV Evenings, AMD
WFUV/New York has upped overnight and fill-in host Eric Holland into new roles as the Evening Host of the Monday-Thursday evening shift (6-10 p.m.) and as AMD. He began his new shift on Monday night, April 15, 2019. Holland takes over the evening host role from Alisa Ali, who has moved to the Monday-Friday midday slot, 10-2 p.m., and he succeeds Carmel Holt as the AMD. Holt departed WFUV in March for new ventures.

“We already know and respect Eric for his work as FUV’s utility player for nearly a decade – filling in for other on-air staffers, hosting interviews, and as an ace fundraiser,” said WFUV PD Rita Houston. “But we are now so happy to have him on the team full time.”

“I’m amped, jazzed, and feel extremely fortunate to be taking over the Evening Host and Assistant Music Director gig,” Holland added. “There is no radio station where I’d rather be than WFUV. We play an inimitable, adventurous mix of music in the non-commercial realm. I have tremendous respect for all the people I’ll continue to work with who are dedicated to the fun and magic of this community of music and radio lovers.”

Holland has long been behind the microphone at WFUV, handling shifts on the overnights and filling in on all dayparts. He’s also part of the team for FUV Music Weekends on wfuv.org and HD2, and is a former host of the daily version of The Alternate Side. His eclectic, globetrotting résumé has included stints as NY1-TV‘s music reporter from 2012-2017, the co-host of a radio program, Henna Communication, in Tokyo, Japan, and the PD and afternoon DJ at KKLV/Honolulu. He’s also held DJ duties in Massachusetts (WZLX, WBOS, and WAGY) and WKGB in upstate New York. Holland also taught at Emerson College in Boston, where he received his Master of Arts.

MPR Promotes Kimball
Non-comm Triple A KCMP/Minneapolis (The Current) APD Lindsay Kimball has been promoted to Regional Director of Membership for parent company Minnesota Public Radio, a position she’s held on an interim basis while continuing to serve as The Current’s APD.

“I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter with the Membership team, and I hope to bring my skills, expertise, and creativity to help MPR thrive far into the future,” said Kimball. Kimball has been with MPR since 2005, when she began as an intern at The Current before rising to the position of Assistant Producer. She also served as Programming Coordinator before assuming the role of Assistant Program Director at The Current, while also being an on-air host at the station.

“Lindsay has an incredible ability to get things done, and her input into all facets of The Current will be missed,” said Jim McGuinn, PD, The Current. “Thankfully, she’ll be applying those skills in another area of our organization and will still be contributing to the success of The Current, through Membership. We are excited for her to take this next step, and we’re grateful for the 14 years we’ve had her as part of this team.”

The Current is determining next steps for filling the vacancy after Kimball’s transition, and will provide updates when available.

The Lumineers Announce III
The Lumineers will release their third album, appropriately titled III, on September 13. The lead single “Gloria” arrived at radio and digitally. Singer Wesley Schultz says the song “is about love between an addict and her family.”

According to the album’s announcement, III is a concept record “presented in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character from a fictitious family known as the Sparks, who span three generations in the album’s storyline.” Band co-founder and multi-instrumentalist Jeremiah Fraites added in a statement that “This collection of songs worked out in a beautiful way, and I feel with this album we’ve really hit our stride.”

The Lumineers have also announced the III world tour, with a run of initial dates in the U.S., Australia and Europe, playing a mix of festival and headlining dates. The trek begins with the Hangout Musical Festival in Gulf Shores, AL on May 19.
