NEXTMEDIA/CHICAGO has promoted SCOTT KOSAK to GM of Classic Hits WERV (95.9 THE RIVER)/CHICAGO SUBURBS, effective APRIL 2nd. KOSAK previously served as Station Manager since AUGUST, 2011, reporting to GM PATRICK PENDERGAST, who will now focus his time running the four-station cluster.
PENDERGAST commented, "Given the continued, steady growth in revenue and ratings for 95.9 THE RIVER under SCOTT's guidance, we felt this was the appropriate next step in what we are confident will be a long and successful career with NEXTMEDIA. We couldn't be any happier with the powerhouse 95.9 THE RIVER has become for listeners and advertisers in the AURORA, NAPERVILLE, FOX VALLEY area and beyond."
"The chance to lead 95.9 THE RIVER, and the devoted staff, is the type of opportunity that doesn't come along often," added KOSAK. "As THE RIVER continues to grow, as it has over the past 18 months, we'll continue to focus on local news and events in the communities we reach, while also working with business owners across the western suburbs to find effective and efficient ways to help them grow their businesses."
