GREATER MEDIA/DETROIT Market Manager STEVE CHESSARE said, "JT represents the future of WCSX. His experience, creativity and energy are exactly what we were looking for in the person to lead WCSX."
GREATER MEDIA VP/Program Development BUZZ KNIGHT noted, "We're thrilled to welcome JT to our great roster of programming minds. His passion for excellence is huge and his ability to inject energy into a room will make the CSX brand even stronger."
"I've worked under a few heritage call letters all over the state of MICHIGAN and loved it, but WCSX is a dream come true," JT said. "I'm so stoked to begin working with such an incredible staff under the legendary DETROIT call letters. I want to thank STEVE CHESSARE, BUZZ KNIGHT, PETER SMYTH and everyone at GREATER MEDIA for the opportunity to work alongside the best in the MOTOR CITY!"
