On the heels of CBS RADIO Spanish Contemporary WLZL (EL ZOL)/WASHINGTON, D.C. PD PETE MANRIQUEZ's departure from the station, sister News WNEW PD ROBERT SANCHEZ has been upped to OM of WLZL effective today, while continuing his PD duties at WNEW.
We have a lot of talented people at EL ZOL who will work with ROB in taking the station to new heights," SVP/Market manager STEVE SWENSON told the stations' staffs. "The experiences of everyone will be of great help to ROB as the team works together. ROB is a straight shooter, he knows CBS RADIO and he is a winner. In the 20 years I’ve known Rob, I’ve come to know his trustworthiness, his talent and loyalty. Both WNEW and EL ZOL are lucky to have such a strong leader. And I know ROB will treat both stations the same way any parent who has two children does; with love, attention and devotion.
"I want to thank PETE for the great job he did in creating a radio station that sounds wonderful. He has been incredibly supportive of his programming staff and it has shown in what comes out of the speakers. I also want to thank PETE for his work as one of the executives on my team."
