Clear Channel Entertainment's music division is moving its national public relations headquarters from Boston to Los Angeles, as Michael Ruthig, former publicist for the EMI catalog, is named VP of national public relations for CCE Music, effective April 28.

Ruthig replaces Pamela Fallon, who had been based out of chairman and co-president Don Law's offices in Boston. Fallon will leave CCE April 30 to pursue other interests, as will her assistant, Amy Gibbons.

Ruthig formerly worked for CCE VP Brian Murphy in Los Angeles before moving to EMI. He will now report to Angie Diehl, senior VP of National Artists Relations for CCE Music.
