CUMULUS MEDIA has named SCOTT JAMESON OM for Classic Rock KQRS, Active Rock KXXR and Oldies WGVZ/MINNEAPOLIS. JAMESON succeeds DAVE HAMILTON, who announced his retirement last week (NET NEWS, 11/29).
JAMESON previously was PD of Triple A WZGC/ATLANTA, where he was also VP/Adult Rock Programming for CBS and Exec. Producer of the ATLANTA FALCONS RADIO NETWORK.
"KQRS and KXXR are two of AMERICA's premiere rock properties so I'm excited to join the exceptional team in MINNEAPOLIS," JAMESON said. "It's also great to return to the MIDWEST. Thanks to JOHN, MIKE and VAL for this wonderful opportunity. Finally, I'd like to congratulate Dave Hamilton on an amazing career, setting the standard on success and longevity in rock programming...."
"SCOTT JAMESON is an excellent programmer who understands how to program music stations that begin their day with dynamic and entertaining morning shows," SVP/Programming MIKE MCVAY said. "He has programmed several legendary stations in his career. KQRS requires a special person to follow DAVE HAMILTON as PD and as cluster OM. We think that SCOTT is that person."
