Sarah Morgan Re-joins Lex and Terry Show

Sarah Morgan has re-joined The Lex & Terry Morning Show as a member of the on-air broadcast team. Morgan spent seven years with the highly-rated and highly regarded Lex & Terry show before departing for a career on board a Carnival Cruise liner, but this week the popular former member of the show staff is once again a current member of the program. This announcement comes today from USRN’s EVP/Programming, Andy Denemark and the show’s founding co-hosts, Lex Staley and Terry Jaymes. Sarah Morgan comes back to the show in a role as a full-time on-air contributor, and regarding her return, Lex & Terry commented that “Sarah is a content machine. She was beloved and revered on the show for many years, and it’s fantastic to welcome her back.” Morgan fills a hole in the show’s on-air lineup that was created by the departure of Krystina Byford who had been with the show for the past two years. Byford is joining the Creative/Production department at the Cumulus cluster in Dallas to work on the Country outlet KSCS-FM as well as KTCK “The Ticket," on the nation’s top Sports Radio Stations. Lex and Terry continued by stating that “Both of these young ladies have been a huge part of our success over the last ten years, and we are happy for both of them to be where they are now. Krystina will be a major player in Dallas radio, and Sarah is a rating magnet, so we are thrilled to have her on the air again.” radiofacts.com Lex & Terry first teamed up on the air at WFYV-FM, Jacksonville in 1992. The two had a successful morning show locally in Jacksonville, and then in 1997, the duo decided to take the program into national syndication. The show found a national audience immediately, and Lex & Terry eventually moved their broadcast operations to Dallas, TX, which still serves as the hometown for their studios. Lex Staley has a long history in radio both on the air and in various management capacities including having been a Program Director. Terry Jaymes comes from a background of comedy, television and live performance, and together they’ve got over 50 years of combined radio experience. Currently, the Lex & Terry show is broadcast in dozens of markets from 6 am until 11 am Eastern Time each weekday, with “Best-Of” segments available for weekend programming.

Musicnotes Surpasses $75 Million in Payments to Artists and Songwriters

Musicnotes, Inc., the world's leading digital sheet music retailer, announced today it recently hit $75 million in royalties paid to music publishers and songwriters since the launch of www.musicnotes.com in 1999. The $75 million number takes into account compensation related to all sheet music downloads at Musicnotes.com, as well as royalties related to the www.songsterr.com guitar tab business. "Rewarding music creators is part of our DNA at Musicnotes," stated Musicnotes CEO Kathleen Marsh. Our business model generates healthy royalties and our market-leading database ensures our unpaid royalties are well under 1%, a performance we are proud of and will stack up against anyone in the music business." In fact, Musicnotes' vision statement explicitly calls out that they "will foster the creation of music by advocating for and rewarding its creators." Musicnotes has pioneered the fair and legal e-commerce of downloadable sheet music, was recently named to Internet Retailer's Top 1000 List for the 14th straight year and is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its founding. As the music industry has come under fire for drastically cutting its royalty payments to artists, Musicnotes offers a different comparison. For the song, "As Long As You Love Me" by Justin Bieber, writer Andre Lindal has a 20% ownership stake. Royalties paid by Pandora for over 38 million spins would equate to just $278, whereas 1,400 downloads of the sheet music would produce $747 for the writer. "Revenue from sheet music, tablature and lyrics are becoming increasingly important to songwriters and music publishers," said National Music Publishers' Association President and CEO David Israelite. "There is tremendous value in songs, and it is important these rights are protected and monetised to their full extent. Musicnotes has established and maintained a longstanding commitment to supporting songwriters and music publishers around the globe." Musicnotes sold its first download in late 1999 and has now reached 40 million downloads in 2018. Songsterr joined the Musicnotes family in 2011 and offers a popular guitar tab subscription service. Both Musicnotes and Songsterr offer mobile and web-based apps to complement their respective song catalogues and enhance the experience for musicians. Learning and playing great music is at the core of both business models.
