CUMULUS MEDIA AC WARM/YORK-LANCASTER taps 21-year radio programming pro DAVE RUSSELL as PD/Afternoon Personality. Russell will take the PD and on-air reins on SEPTEMBER 8th. This marks a homecoming for RUSSELL, who programmed the station from 2007 through 2009. He returns to WARM from his most recent role as PD/Promo Dir. for WOGG and WPKL in suburban PITTSBURGH.
VP/Stratus Music Programming and Corporate PD EMILY BOLDON said, “We are so excited to welcome DAVE back to CUMULUS/YORK. He had many successful years at the helm programming this heritage station, and we look forward to many more as Dave re-joins our team. He is a consummate professional and top-notch programmer. This is a strong hire for the station and for the company.”
RVP RON GIOVANNIELLO added, “It is great to have DAVE RUSSELL back on the team at CUMULUS and WARM. WARM 103.3 is in terrific hands and DAVE will do an awesome job of driving our Adult Contemporary market-leading brand in YORK-LANCASTER.”
RUSSELL said, “I am very excited to be returning to WARM, a station that has been very near and dear to me for many years. The station is moving in a very positive direction with the creation of the LIZ & CHRIS morning show. I am looking forward to working with them, along with CUMULUS SVP/Content and Programming MIKE MCVAY, A/C format captain EMILY BOLDON, Regional Vice President RON GIOVANNIELLO and VP/Market Manager CAROL PIERSON. Together, we can drive WARM to heights in both ratings and revenue. SEPTEMBER 8th can’t get here quickly enough.”
