A Los Angeles Superior Court jury determined Tuesday that radio and television personality Rick Dees and his business manager acted with "malice and oppression" in diverting profits from Dees' Top 40 countdown program and awarded the pair's former business partner a total of more than $10 million. Cos Cappellino was awarded $3.5 million in compensatory damages for profits the jury decided were owed Cappellino since the syndicated radio program's debut in 1983.

Children's Broadcasting Corp. said Monday that it has notified its affiliate radio stations that it will no longer distribute its Aahs World Radio programming after Jan. 30. The move was forced by competition from Walt Disney Co. and its ABC Radio Network unit, said CBC President and Chairman Christopher T. Dahl. A lawsuit filed by the Minneapolis-based company against Disney/ABC is expected to go to trial early next year. Aahs became a national network of children's programming in October 1992.
