BOB RALEIGH will join CUMULUS/KNOXVILLE as the Dir./Programming effective immediately, including Country WIVK. In his new role, RALEIGH will oversee the programming and operations for the company’s KNOXVILLE, TN cluster. He replaces OM/PD MIKE HAMMOND who exited last week (NET NEWS 3/9). The move is a return to CUMULUS for RALEIGH, as he worked for CUMULUS from 1998-2005 as Corporate Dir./Programming/Country.
CUMULUS SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES said, “BOB’s work ethic and tenacity are equaled by his varied programming experience across all formats, with special emphasis in Country.”
RALEIGH has served as President of RALEIGH MEDIA GROUP, a programming and management consultancy working with clients in a variety of formats and markets. Prior to forming his own company, he served as PD for the syndicated "LIA SHOW" and "BILL CODY SHOW" for JONES RADIO NETWORKS, now DIAL GLOBAL.
