CUMULUS MEDIA has upped Talk WPRO-A-WEAN/PROVIDENCE PD CRAIG SCHWALB to PD at Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK. WABC OM TONY MASCARO will move up to WPRO to fill SCHWALB's PD slot there.
SCHWALB, who worked at SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO, WNEW/NEW YORK, and WKRK/DETROIT, among other places, before WPRO, said, “WABC has inspired countless broadcasters over the years and to now lead WABC into its next phase will be an absolute pleasure. Without a doubt, working alongside CUMULUS NYC Market Manager KIM BRYANT, COO JOHN DICKEY, SVP Programming MIKE MCVAY and Corporate Program Director RANDALL BLOOMQUIST, will be an honor."
MASCARO added, "I am thrilled to be returning to PROVIDENCE where it all started for me. WPRO-AM is a legendary radio station with an amazing line-up of talent. I wish everyone at WABC continued success for the future. Thanks to JOHN DICKEY, MIKE MCVAY, RANDALL BLOOMQUIST and PROVIDENCE Market Manager BARBARA HAYNES for this opportunity to program a heritage radio station in a great radio market."
