LOS ANGELES-based EPIC Nat'l Dir./Rhythmic Promotion MELONY TORRES has rejoined with her radio roots and has been named APD/MD at CUMULUS Top 40 WRQX/WASHINGTON. She will also handle the 10a-2p air shift.
WRQX PD RICK GILLETTE said, "MELONY is someone I've been trying to hire for more than two years. She's passionate about music, a gifted student of programming and dynamic & engaging on the air—a true trifecta of talent. With apologies to FLOTUS, I'm sure it won't be long until she's the most powerful woman in WASHINGTON."
TORRES commented, "I'm baaaack! I'm beyond excited for my return to radio and to work alongside GILLETTE. He is someone I look up to as one of the best programmers in the business. I'd also like to thank JOHN DICKEY and MIKE McVAY for giving me such a great opportunity to further my career with CUMULUS in the phenomenal D.C. market."
With a wide variety of formats in her resume, TORRES began her radio career at Alternative WOCL/ORLANDO, adding nights at sister Hot AC WOMX. She then moved to WSJT/TAMPA as MD/nights, then segueing to APD/MD/middays at Top 40 WJHM/ORLANDO.
