CURTIS MEDIA GROUP has hired CHRIS ROTH as PD for Oldies WWMY (Y-102.9)/RALEIGH. ROTH joins the station from his current position at CUMULUS/FAYETTEVILLE, NC, where he’s been Sr. Director/Programming since JULY 2005. ROTH will also handle middays at Y-102.9.
"I’m proud to take the next step in my programming career with CURTIS MEDIA," ROTH said. "I look forward to leading Y-102.9 (and simulcast partner 102.3 FM) into a dominant position in the TRIANGLE market. The senior managers at CURTIS MEDIA are true radio people, and I think the stage is set for us to have a bunch of fun!"
CURTIS MEDIA President/COO PHIL ZACHARY said he’s excited about the hire. "We’ve had our eye on CHRIS for about a year now," he noted. "He already knows our systems and philosophies having worked here as a parttimer, and he brings that intangible ‘X factor’ of creativity and enthusiasm beyond the nuts and bolts of great station content."
