The new PD at CBS Talk WPHT-A and Talk WYSP/PHILADELPHIA is veteran programmer JOHN COOK, who takes over on JULY 30. COOK, who worked for CBS in DALLAS and SAN ANTONIO from 2000-2004 and has also programmed Country KPLX and Top 40 KHKS/DALLAS and Top 40 KIIS/LOS ANGELES, is returning to his hometown to fill the PD slots exited earlier this year by GRACE BLAZER at WPHT (now at WTKK/BOSTON) and GIL EDWARDS.
"I want to thank DAVID YADGAROFF and MIKE BALDINI for the privilege of programming these two stations and I am excited to be returning to CBS RADIO as well as my hometown of PHILADELPHIA," said COOK.
VP/GM YADGAROFF added, "I am pleased to have someone with JOHN's depth of expertise join our organization in this crucial role. JOHN's background at legendary radio stations, with marquee talent is a perfect fit for our mission here – to create compelling, unique content for PHILADELPHIA’s passionate radio listeners."
