GREATER MEDIA has named MICHAEL TOZZI PD/middayer of its new "Smooth Jazz 97.5 FM" in PHILADELPHIA, which is set to debut next month with the WJJZ calls (NET NEWS 10/13). The old WJJZ, at 106.1 and owned by CLEAR CHANNEL, dropped Smooth Jazz in AUGUST; TOZZI was PD of that station from FEBRUARY 2001 until the flip.
"I can't tell you what a thrill it is to be asked to help in bringing Smooth Jazz back to PHILADELPHIA," said TOZZI. "GREATER MEDIA is a company that many of my friends have been attracted to over the last few years, so I'm delighted to be joining a team that's committed to winning in such a competitive marketplace."
Michael Tozzi is synonymous with WJJZ
"MICHAEL TOZZI is synonymous with WJJZ and is the natural choice to lead the way as PD for Smooth Jazz 97.5," said GREATER MEDIA/PHILLY VP/Market Manager JOHN FULLAM. "Michael's passion, vision and leadership in Smooth Jazz will serve us well, and we are thrilled to have him on our team."
