COX MEDIA GROUP Top 40 WPUP (POWER 100.1) and AC WGMG (MAGIC 102.1)/ATHENS, GA PD TOD TUCKER has resigned and is relocating back to OKLAHOMA to be closer to his family -- and is joining COX CABLE in OKLAHOMA CITY, effective MAY 3rd, as a Sales rep.
CMG ATHENS/GAINESVILLE/GREATER ATLANTA area VP/GM SCOTT SMITH noted, "As you know, growth and development are central to CMG's culture, and our own TOD TUCKER is a great example of that. He joined COX MEDIA GROUP TULSA at KRMG and then moved with CMG to become PD of CMG's WGMG and WPUP and has done an outstanding job for the past few years.
"TOD has been instrumental in bringing CMG's winning programming culture to ATHENS, and I'm proud of the successful brands that he has been instrumental in keeping on the right track during his tenure here. While I'm sad to see him go, I'm glad to add another member of TEAM ATHENS to our company's growing list of rising stars and with COX CABLE. TOD will be leaving on MAY 3rd and we wish him the best back in OKLAHOMA."
TUCKER told ALL ACCESS, "I can't say enough great things about SCOTT SMITH -- he's been an amazing mentor. My thanks to VP/Programming STEVE SMITH and Dir./Top 40 Programming JEREMY RICE and Dir./AC Programming STEVE HUNTER for all of their guidance and expertise. COX is an amazing company and happy to stay with them in this new capacity. I plan to do some parttime on-air work and some voiceovers as well. More details on that soon."
