COX MEDIA GROUP (CMG) Top 40 WPOI/TAMPA has named JOHN E. KAGE as its new Dir./Branding. Additionally, DAN CONNELLY, the Dir./Branding and Programming for Alternative WSUN (97X) will report to KAGE, who previously served as PD/Digital Content Dir. for Top 40 KQKS (KS1075)/DENVER.
“I am proud to have JOHN join our team,” CMG/TAMPA VP/Market Manager KEITH LAWLESS said. “His proven track record of success and leadership in programming, along with his clear passion to win, will make him a very welcome addition to our amazing team at CMG/TAMPA.”
"Having spent many years in DENVER with both an amazing radio station and staff, it was going to have to be a pretty special opportunity to move elsewhere,” said KAGE. “CMG/TAMPA is exactly that, and every time I get the chance to talk radio with STEVE SMITH, I leave inspired and excited about this business. Most important to me at this stage in my career is a positive team atmosphere, the right tools to win and great brands, and KEITH LAWLESS and the talented CMG/TAMPA team have done a tremendous job with these brands.”
"I have had my eye on JOHN for the last five years,” CMG VP/Programming STEVE SMITH said. “I had the benefit of hearing him win battle after battle where we both reside in DENVER. He can make it come out of the speakers. I quickly got to know not only what a great programmer he is, but what a great person he is. At CMG that’s what we look for. He is great fit for CMG, and I am so excited to have him on board."
