MILWAUKEE RADIO ALLIANCE Alternative WLUM (FM 102/1)/MILWAUKEE announces MD/middayer MICHELLE RUTKOWSKI has been upped to PD. She replaces JACENT JACKSON, who exited last month for the PD post at CBS Alternative KITS (LIVE 105)/SAN FRANCISCO.
RUTKOWSKI has been with FM 102/1 since its inception eight years ago, the last three as MD.
VP/GM BILL HURWITZ said, "Throughout the extensive interview process it was clearly evident that MICHELLE was the best candidate for the position as every finalist said musically and socially FM 102/1 is on point. Trained and schooled by former FM 102/1 PD and predecessor JACENT JACKSON in MILWAUKEE and CHICAGO, MICHELLE is the perfect person to take FM 102/1 to the next level. I’m elated."
“We owe FM 102/1’s success to our incredibly dedicated listeners," RUTKOWSKI said. "I’m so proud to lead this hardworking, uniquely passionate team in continuing to provide our audience with a great, truly local radio station. I couldn’t be more excited for this amazing opportunity."
