Rayburn and Lichterman can also now boast to having the largest live download catalog once the integration is completed this month. Lichterman says, “We have now become second in that market share at the close of this deal.” Lichterman goes onto to answer that Rayburn, in his job duties, will also oversee Radio Sunset, and its move to satellite radio, along with Sunset’s Mobile ringtones while reporting to Lichterman as a board member for the entire company.
