RADIO ONE Urban WERQ (92Q)/BALTIMORE OM AL PAYNE has named TALYA JOHNSON to be its new MD/APD. She replaces KELSON FISHER, who exited to take at similar position at their sister station in WASHINGTON earlier this year.
“Our next MD had to be the exact fit for all of us, as well as reflect the station and the BALTIMORE hip-hop lifestyle,” said PAYNE. “I’m excited when I think of our future with TALYA.” TALYA comes back to radio from LIVING SOCIAL.com. Her career path includes a degree from DREXEL UNIVERSITY and working as MD at CBS Top-40/Rhythmic WPGC in WASHINGTON. In 2008 Ms. JOHNSON was named one of EDISON MEDIA’s “Top 30 under 30.” TALYA is expected to begin her new duties immediately.
