Veteran programmer and air personality CRAIG RUSSELL has joined BLACK DIAMOND BROADCAST GROUP/HOUGHTON LAKE, MI, where he’ll handle programming chores and mornings for Classic Hits WUPS. Additionally, RUSSELL will program Country clustermate WTWS. In WUPS mornings, he succeeds DENIS PRIOR, who exits; programming for both stations was previously handled by company COO/CFO NORM MCKEE and aided by a team of consultants.
Most recently doing mornings at JACKSON RADIO WORKS Top 40 WKHM (K105.3)/JACKSON, MI, RUSSELL’s radio resume includes stops in GRAND RAPIDS and TRAVERSE CITY. “I can’t wait to get back to NORTHERN MICHIGAN and make some great radio,” said RUSSELL. "Legendary calls, great local ownership, and HOUGHTON LAKE; win, win, and win!”
