Irving Azoff Joins Clear Channel Board

The Live Nation executive chairman joins amidst change on his own board

irving azoffClear Channel Communications has appointed Live Nation executive chairman Irving Azoff to its board, the radio broadcaster said in a regulatory filing Friday.

Azoff replaces Kent Weldon who resigned from his board post on Monday, according to a regulatory filing.

Before Live Nation, Azoff was CEO of Ticketmaster which merged with the firm. He also was a prominent manager in the music industry for many years.

Live Nation's own board went through changes earlier this week when Barry Diller — head of InterActive Corp., and Ticketmaster before the Live Nation merger — resigned from his role as chairman of the board as a result of a dispute with other prominent members.
