CUMULUS has announced that Top 40 KLIF (i93)/DALLAS PD JOHN FOXX will be transferring to sister Hot AC WPLJ/NEW YORK as its new PD, beginning JULY 9th. WPLJ OM TONY MASCARO will continue in that role, and add OM duties at Talker WABC-A.
CUMULUS Corporate SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES told ALL ACCESS, "It's our pleasure to announce the promotion of CUMULUS i93 PD JOHN FOXX to become PD at CUMULUS 95-5 WPLJ. FOXX, a native New Yorker, has done a tremendous job in DALLAS and has earned his wings to be PD at legendary WPLJ alongside SCOTT SHANNON and a world-class air staff.
"TONY MASCARO remains as OM and picks up OM duties of WABC. SCOTT's talent and programming wisdom coupled with TONY's knowledge of the NEW YORK radio arena will serve as a solid base for FOXX's tenacity and forward thinking."
JEFFRIES added, "JEFF MILES is exiting WPLJ middays, and transferring to another CUMULUS property to be announced on JUNE 29th. Interviewing for PD at i93/DALLAS begins immediately."
FOXX told ALL ACCESS, "It is an amazing ride with CUMULUS and to be surrounded by people who wake up everyday and want to make great things come out of the speakers. CUMULUS created a very special Top 40 in DALLAS with i93 as SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES' launch team throttled up i93 which now cumes over a million persons weekly.
"VP/Market Manager DAN BENNETT, who's a total product guy, has been a pleasure to work with. I look forward to continuing my partnership with JAN, SCOTT SHANNON and TONY MASCARO in NEW YORK. This is a dream come true, WPLJ is legendary! It is an honor to be part of such a great organization and I'm excited to take on my new role with CUMULUS at WPLJ."
