KLRU’s Austin City Limits has created a new position, general manager, and hired former Arista Records exec Tom Gimbel. Bill Stotesbery, station c.e.o. and g.m., said the growth of the franchise over the past several years (Current, July 20, 2009) created the need for the post. Gimbel’s background also includes founding Clatterhead, a social media advertising and marketing company, and High Wire Music, an independent management, label services, and music distribution company for more than 20 artists. Gimbel will oversee business development, production and digital strategies for the longtime hit pubcasting show.
