CUMULUS Alternative WNNX (99X)/ATLANTA ups Asst. Promotions Director ERIC "DUTCH" VAN DE STEEG to Promotions Director and 99X Roadie MATT COURTOY (aka MATT C) to Asst. Promotions Director. DUTCH replaces SHAWNESSY RENEGAR, who moved to crosstown LINCOLN Top 40 WSTR (STAR 94) in a similar capacity.
99X PD LESLIE FRAM said, "DUTCH AND MATT C are part of the wave of up and coming young superstars in radio promotion. They understand the new media revolution along with grass-roots marketing. I'm thrilled to be working with them on a daily basis as we continue to own the streets and execute the best promotion's in ATLANTA."
DUTCH noted, "Everyone gets bit by the radio bug in different ways. My bug was 99X. Listening to 99X growing up, I felt like I was a real part of the station and its DJs. It was a part of my identity. That’s what I’m here to do…create that connection with each and every listener. That connection is not just what comes out of the airwaves but, much more. This is a different marketing age. You can connect with people so many different avenues to convey one single marketing message."
