CUMULUS Active Rock WFTK (96 ROCK)/CINCINNATI has promoted AXEL LOWE to PD replacing MICHAEL WALTER who left the station in OCTOBER (NET NEWS 10/27). LOWE moves to his new post from ATLANTA, where he most recently served CUMULUS as APD/Afternoon Drive Personality for WNNX (ROCK 100.5). Prior to that, he was Morning Show Host and PD of WNNX (99X)/ATLANTA.
Corporate Programming/Rock Formats Dir. TROY HANSON said, “AXEL is one of the great minds inside our rock world here at CUMULUS and it gives us great pleasure to bestow PD stripes to AXEL at 96 ROCK in THE QUEEN CITY. His grasp of where rock is positioned in the industry and where it needs to continue to evolve is in equal parallel to his stellar on-air work. While we continue to recruit the best programming minds in the business, we are most fortunate to have such a strong stable of programmers inside the company to be able to promote from within, as well.”
LOWE said, “I’ve had a great run in ATLANTA with 99X and ROCK 100.5, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to program 96 ROCK and be a part of the air staff. Thanks to JOHN DICKEY, MIKE MCVAY and TROY HANSON for believing in me. I’m looking forward to working with Market Manager DAVE CROWL and the rest of the great team! Does it get cold in CINCINNATI?”
