Despite denials yesterday, JOHN SEBASTIAN was today named PD at CUMULUS Country KPLX (99.5 THE WOLF)/DALLAS. He most recently was PD of WJMK (104.3 JACK FM)/CHICAGO.
SEBASTIAN said, “I’ve had the good fortune to have had some dream jobs in my career, but this may top them all! The original WOLF is one of the best 'branded' stations, not just in Country but in all of radio. I look forward to working with WOLF’s incredibly talented staff.”
SEBASTIAN previously worked for CUMULUS at WSM/NASHVILLE. “We had an amazing run at WSM, THE WOLF in NASHVILLE, and to say I’m thrilled to be coming back home to CUMULUS would be an understatement. I have the utmost respect for LEW and JOHN DICKEY and CHARLIE COOK. This is going to be fun.”
CUMULUS Market Manager DAN BENNETT said, “JOHN SEBASTIAN has been successful everywhere he’s been and has successfully competed in some of the country’s biggest and most competitive markets.”
