CUMULUS/NEW ORLEANS has promoted Top 40/Rhythmic KKND and Urban AC KMEZ PD TALUS KNIGHT to OM for the cluster, which also includes Alternative WZRH and Country WRKN. Concurrently, WRKN afternoon and WZRH midday host SHAWN WILLIAMS has been elevated to APD for the two stations. She will continue her on-air roles for both.
"Sometimes the best fits for your team are already on your team, and this is exactly what happened in NEW ORLEANS with the promotion of PD TALUS KNIGHT of KKND (POWER 102.9) and KMEZ (OLD SCHOOL 106.7) to OM of the cluster," said CUMULUS/NEW ORLEANS-BATON ROUGE-COLUMBUS-STARKVILLE RVP/Market Manager PAT GALLOWAY. "TALUS' positive attitude, knowledge of the market, ability to produce incredible concerts and event, and leadership skills is exactly what we need in an OM. SHAWN WILLIAMS was also extremely deserving of her promotion to APD of WRKN (NASH 92.3) and WZRH (106.1 THE UNDERGROUND). SHAWN is a true NEW ORLEANIAN and embodies the unique culture of our incredible city -- she even has her own band. SHAWN's incredible work effort and team collaboration make her the right person for this position."
