Congratulations are in order for former 107.7 The End daytime DJ and assistant program director Andrew Harms. Today he announced he is leaving the Emerald City and heading to L.A. where he will work at Revolt TV, a new music cable station owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs.

According to this New York Times article, Revolt will be “a music and news television channel influenced by the nonstop chatter of social networking Web sites.” The station is expected to launch this summer. Harms will be the station’s director of music programming.

From the archives: An interview with Andrew Harms

Late last year Harms left the station after 14 years of working in broadcast radio. During his 14 years at the station he became a much-loved fixture of the local music scene and was responsible for helping break dozens of bands and influenced the musical tastes of thousands of listeners. Harms outlined his reasons for leaving here in case you’re curious why he decided to leave radio.

Thanks for everything you’ve done for the local music scene Harms and best of luck to you in L.A. I hope you find yourself drinking Hennessy with Morrissey at some point during your time in the City of Angels.
