CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT/CLEVELAND has named CHRIS TYLER PD of Rock WMMS, Top 40 WAKS (96.5 KISS-FM) and Alternative WMMS-HD2 (99X), effective MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17th. Tyler previously was VP/Programming for CCM+E/PROVIDENCE and PD for Rock WHJY.
“I’m beyond thrilled to join the amazing people in our CLEVELAND cluster,” said TYLER. "Programming such legendary stations as WMMS and 96.5 KISS-FM is an opportunity I welcome with open arms. Plus, it’s not every day you get the chance to work with killer talents like ROVER and ALAN COX. Thanks to TOM MCCONNELL, GENE ROMANO, GARY MINCER and KEITH ABRAMS for their enormous support during this process.”
“We looked high and low for just the right programmer to lead these two heritage brands in CLEVELAND and found him right in our own company,” CCM+E/CLEVELAND VP/Programming KEITH ABRAMS said. “CHRIS brings a unique mix of success in the formats, a history with big-time talent, and a huge passion to win to our cluster. We could not be more excited to have him join the team!”
