REGENT COMMUNICATIONS Country WGNA/ALBANY, NY has named TOM JACOBSEN PD/MD/afternoon host. JACOBSEN is currently OM at REGENT's UTICA-ROME cluster and is responsible for day-to-day programming on Country WFRG (BIG FROG 104). As ALL ACCESS previously reported, OM BUZZ BRINDLE and MD/midday personality BILL EARLY have both exited. JACOBSEN is a 23-year veteran of the business and programmed WFRY/WATERTOWN, NY before going to UTICA.
According to REGENT VP/Programming BOB MOODY, "TOM has earned his stripes by doing a remarkable job for REGENT in two other NEW YORK markets -- first WATERTOWN and, most recently, UTICA. He tells me that he keeps moving south for the better climate.”
JACOBSEN said, “When I grew up in FORT ANN I listened to WGNA -- everyone did! It has always been a dream of mine to program this radio station. I’m humbled by this opportunity, and I thank REGENT for having the faith in my abilities as a broadcast professional.”
JACOBSEN (JAKE), starts in the CAPITOL CITY on MONDAY, APRIL 30. He was in UTICA-ROME for the past four years.
