“We have history with VERNON," RADIO ONE/BALTIMORE VP/GM HOWARD MAZER said. "We’ve seen him grow and excel in his trade and couldn’t be more proud to see him return home to BALTIMORE to lead our dynamic cluster of stations. I have every confidence that he’ll do what he’s always done -– be innovative, creative and win.”
“I have always dreamed of returning to my hometown radio station,” said VERNON. “Now, after 14 years in an ever-changing radio business, I’m blessed to be able to still live my dream. Being able to take what I have learned over the years and bring it home to help 92Q and MAGIC continue to win is definitely a dream come true. I’m thankful for this opportunity and I don’t take it for granted.”
