Veteran programmer and air talent CRUZE joins CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WWDC (DC 101)/WASHINGTON as PD, effective JANUARY 2. Most recently PD at GREATER MEDIA Classic Rock WMGK/PHILADELPHIA, CRUZE previously worked at the FNX RADIO NETWORK (based at WFNX/BOSTON), KTBZ (THE BUZZ)/HOUSTON, WKBQ/ST. LOUIS, and WABB-F/MOBILE. He replaces RICK SCHMIDT, who exited in OCTOBER.
"The opportunity to hire someone with the skill set and expertise in the format like CRUZE was one I could not pass up," said CLEAR CHANNEL WASHINGTON-BALTIMORE OM JEFF KAPUGI. "I see great things happening at DC 101 in 2007."
"I am so excited to have the chance to program this legendary radio station," added CRUZE. "To work with a talent like ELLIOT (SEGAL), and to be a part of such an incredible staff is going to be amazing. The vibe that DAVE PUGH and JEFF KAPUGI have created at CLEAR CHANNEL/DC is awesome. There was no way that I could say 'no.'"
