CUMULUS MEDIA has appointed 35-year radio veteran JOHN DIMICK as VP/Programming Operations, effective WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1st. Previously, DIMICK was SVP/Programming and Operations for LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA, where he was responsible for the oversight of station brands, digital development, PPM and audience strategies.
“JOHN DIMICK brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this position," CUMULUS MEDIA SVP/Content and Programming MIKE MCVAY said. "He joins DOUG HAMAND and GREG FREY as a VPPO. The three of them, along with our format specialists and analysts, will provide even more tools to our managers and PD’s to employ when programming their stations.”
“I’m very happy that MIKE MCVAY wouldn’t buy my ‘retirement from the industry’ thinking!" DIMICK said. "What the new senior management team at CUMULUS is building is extraordinary and compelling. I am flattered that MIKE and BOB WALKER believe I can help advance the growth and success of the stations and the remarkable CUMULUS platform. Joining the corporate programming team with people like GREG FREY, DOUG HAMAND, DR. ED COHEN, VAL GARRIS, RALPH CIPOLLA, and the other pros at CUMULUS is very exciting.”
