When FORDHAM UNIVERSITY Triple A WFUV/NEW YORK GM CHUCK SINGLETON went looking for a new PD, he didn't have to go far, naming longtime MD RITA HOUSTON to the position, which has been vacant since SINGLETON's elevation to GM last JUNE.
"To all of us at WFUV, to our listeners and members, and to our colleagues in the industry, RITA doesn't need much of an introduction," said SINGLETON. "She's always been more than just a MD. We're fortunate to have RITA's programming experience, smarts and wisdom, and I look forward to working closely with her in this new role, as WFUV moves forward to realize its potential."
"I couldn't be more excited about taking on this bigger challenge," said HOUSTON. "It's a great time for the station. FUV artists like MUMFORD & SONS, THE LUMINEERS and ALABAMA SHAKES are becoming stars, and our audience is growing. WFUV is loaded with creative talent, both on and off the air, and I know that working together we'll find more and more ways to connect FUV listeners with the artists we love."
