CUMULUS MEDIA Active Rock KXXR (93X)/MINNEAPOLIS has named JOHN LASSMAN PD. Previously Regional OM/Brand Manager of TOWNSQUARE MEDIA AC WJYE and Adult Hits WBUF/BUFFALO, LASSMAN succeeds WADE LINDER, who recently segued to sister Rock WLUP and Alternative WKQX/CHICAGO (NET NEWS, 6/4).
“MINNEAPOLIS has always produced some of the best radio stations and talent out there," CUMULUS MEDIA Corporate PD/Rock Formats TROY HANSON said. "Today we scored a big win for MINNESOTA with the return of JOHNNY ROCK LASSMAN. Go VIKINGS!”
KQRS/KXXR/WGVX Corporate Programmer/OM SCOTT JAMESON added: “JOHN’s market equity in the TWIN CITIES and his strong Rock background make him a perfect choice to lead 93X.”
“Returning to my hometown of MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL has been a goal of mine for some time," LASSMAN said. "The opportunity to join CUMULUS and to help keep 93X dominant was too good to pass up. WADE LINDER has done an incredible job with the station and we are poised for continued success. Thanks to JOHN DICKEY, MIKE MCVAY, TROY HANSON and SCOTT JAMESON for having faith in my abilities. Now, may I interest you in a pair of BUFFALO BILLS season tickets?”
