CUMULUS MEDIA has named programming veteran JIM RICHARDS as OM/PD of Triple A KFOG and Classic Rock KSAN (THE BONE)/SAN FRANCISCO, effective MONDAY, MAY 5th. RICHARDS moves from OM at sister Alternative WKQX (101WKQX) and WLUP (THE LOOP)CHICAGO.
“We are delighted to have a programmer of JIM’s caliber and pedigree lead our efforts in the BAY AREA. His product passion, digital thought process and strong talent management acumen are second to none," CUMULUS Corporate PD/Rock TROY HANSON said. "We look forward to JIM duplicating his precise success in CHICAGO into a big win for us in SAN FRANCISCO. Are neck tattoos permanent? Cause he may want to have that CUBS logo looked at.”
“I was blown away when MIKE MCVAY called and asked me to lead KFOG and THE BONE!" RICHARDS said, "In the short time I’ve been with cumulus, I’ve been really impressed with JOHN DICKEY, MIKE, TROY HANSON and everyone involved. Their support and appreciation have been amazing. As excited as I am to get back to CALIFORNIA, I must thank everyone in CHICAGO at THE LOOP and 101WKQX who made my job easy. I am proud of what we accomplished together and am excited to get started in SAN FRANCISCO.”
