COX MEDIA GROUP Talk KRMG-A-F/TULSA OM/PD DREW ANDERSSEN will be moving to sister Talk WDBO-A-F/ORLANDO as PD, starting AUG. 6th. ANDERSSEN, who has been at the helm of KRMG since 2000, replaces STEVE HOLBROOK, who exited the ORLANDO cluster after 30 years at the beginning of JUNE.
"DREW has had an incredibly successful track record leading the KRMG brand," CMG Orlando Radio VP/Market Manager SUSAN LARKIN said. "His talent and passion for digital innovation will be a great asset not only for WDBO but for our entire cluster."
"I appreciate the trust and support given me by COX MEDIA GROUP to lead WDBO into the future," ANDERSSEN said. "This is a great radio station with a great reputation. I’m very much looking forward to joining the team."
ANDERSSEN's move leaves KRMG in search of a new PD. The station is looking for someone with at least 5 years' programming management experience (preferably in News-Talk), with outstanding verbal and written communication skills and computer skills for audio delivery and automation (e.g., Maestro or Audiovault). Extensive digital experience with station websites and social media is also required, and a track record of ratings and revenue success is preferred. The job includes serving as overall Brand Manager of the station and its digital channels; leading the air staff and news department (including coaching); integrating syndicated product with localization; leading a strategic team to formulate and execute strategies and tactics, working closely with COX's Director of Programming, Format Leader and Consultant; imaging; running station operations 24/7/365; hiring and retaining talent; overseeing all digital platforms; planning and oversight of station research; working closely with other cluster and group PDs to achieve cluster goals; and other possible cluster responsibilities as assigned by the GM.
