ALL ACCESS has learned that SKIP DILLARD has been tapped to be the new OM for INNER CITY BROADCASTING CORP. (ICBC) Urban AC WBLS and Black Gospel WLIB/NEW YORK.
DILLARD held a similar position at CBS Rhythmic WPGC/WASHINGTON. Prior to that, he had been format captain for RADIO ONE’s DETROIT cluster, which includes Urban WHTD (HOT102.7), Urban AC WDMK (KISS 105.9) and News/Talk WCHB-A.
"SKIP has a track record of success programming top-rated stations in several major markets, and we are excited to have him join the INNER CITY BROADCASTIING family," stated DEON LEVINGSTON, VP/GM of the two stations.
DILLARD replaces long-time PD VINNY BROWN, who exited in JANUARY (NET NEWS 1/28). "God has blessed me!" DILLARD tells ALL ACCESS. "In my wildest dreams I would never have thought I would have a chance to program WPGC and now work for INNER CITY BROADCASTING in the city where I was born. I am one of a few who can honestly say that I've enjoyed every place I've stopped in my career and now I'm honored for the opportunity to help WLIB and WBLS continue their legendary track record of great programming and service to NEW YORK while learning from some of the greatest minds and talent in the history of radio that reside at INNER CITY BROADCASTING!"
