ENTERCOM Variety Hits WSMW (98-7 SIMON)/GREENSBORO PD MICHAEL BRYAN will transfer to sister Top 40/Rhythmic WNVZ (Z-104)/NORFOLK as its new PD/afternoon personality, sometime in early JANUARY. He replaces DON LONDON who gives the daily PD duties at Z-104, but continues as ENTERCOM/NORFOLK OM.
LONDON said, "I am happy to announce the return of MICHAEL BRYAN to WNVZ. He has done a great job since joining ENTERCOM/GREENSBORO exactly two years ago today. We are proud to see MICHAEL return with the chance to program this heritage CHR station. For MICHAEL, it's the realization of a long-time dream. MICHAEL will also be taking a lead role in Creative Services and brings a tremendous amount of creativity, writing skill and professionalism to commercial production, promos and sweepers. MICHAEL is a smart, creative broadcaster and a great person. He'll be another great addition to our programming team here at ENTERCOM/NORFOLK."
BRYAN told ALL ACCESS, "Talk about coming full circle! DON LONDON is the guy who hired me into ENTERCOM as Z104's midday jock 6 years ago and has really been a mentor. Z104's an amazing station with piles of heritage and a tremendous staff. I can't wait to get started!
"At the same time, it's bittersweet leaving GREENSBORO. I'm extremely proud of my team. We've done big things with 98-7 Simon and the next person to Program this station is in terrific shape for the future. My thanks to OM BRIAN DOUGLAS and VP/Market Mgr. BRENT MILLAR for an amazing two years!"
A replacement for MICHAEL is being sought. Packages to BRIAN DOUGLAS at 7819 National Service Road, Suite 401, GREENSBORO, NC 27409.
