MICKEY JOHNSON has been named Brand Manager for TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Urban AC WTUG (92.9)/TUSCALOOSA, AL.
The 30-year radio broadcasting, promotions, and management vet's background is what attracted Market President DAVID DUBOSE, who commented: “I am excited to have MICKEY JOHNSON join our TUSCALOOSA team. He is a proven winner. I am very confident MICKEY and his team will create compelling local content to take WTUG to the next level. He is known for creating radio stations which are fun to listen to and radio stations with an amazing record of service to the community."
The MIAMI native's career began in his hometown as a promotions assistant before moving north to ORLANDO as Promotions Director and later to JACKSONVILLE as PD for CLEAR CHANNEL. He first moved to ALABAMA to join COX RADIO and was instrumental in the launch of SUMMIT MEDIA Urban/Top 40 Rhythmic WBHJ (95.7 JAMZ)/BIRMINGHAM when it began in 1996. He would spend 13 years in the state before joining RADIO ONE in ST. LOUIS as the Operations Manager.
Added JOHNSON: “I’m super excited to be working with Market President DAVID DUBOSE again. WTUG is heritage station that he and KURT JOHNSON have entrusted in me to take to the next level.
