After more than 31 years in local radio, rock jock Allison Harte has left the airwaves. She is probably best remembered for her tenure at WLAV-FM (96.9), where she worked for 10 years. For the past six years, she had worked at Clear Channel's WBFX-FM (101.3) on the noon-3 p.m. shift. Her resignation was effective Monday, and Harte looks forward to her new role in marketing for River City Slims, a blues nightclub slated to open in mid-July ... On another matter at The Fox, Jack Lawson is no longer program director there. Essick did not say much, but confirmed that Lawson was "no longer with the station"... Rock jock Harte moves into marketing (Sun, 5/20)
