Former CBS RADIO Alternative WBCN/BOSTON PD DAVE WELLINGTON has been named PD of CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WWDC (DC101)/WASHINGTON, DC and the newly-launched Alternative WCHH (CHANNEL 104.3)/BALTIMORE. The PD post had been vacant at DC101 since CRUZE departed almost three months ago. WELLINGTON will be in-house beginning JULY 28th.
CLEAR CHANNEL/WASHINGTON-BALTIMORE OM JEFF KAPUGI said, "We conducted an extensive search for the next PD of DC101 and in the process signed on CHANNEL 104.3 in BALTIMORE. With ELLIOT doing mornings at both stations, it was natural to combine the duties of CHANNEL 104.3 with that of the DC101 PD. We had many qualified candidates, but DAVE came across as the best fit for our needs and I know he’ll be a great addition to the stations and the CC DC/BALTIMORE cluster."
"I am truly honored to be joining the #1 radio company in the U.S.," said WELLINGTON. "It’s always been a dream of mine to program for such true radio visionaries and strong leaders as JEFF KAPUGI and HARTLEY ADKINS. "I look forward to taking CLEAR CHANNEL's DC101 and CHANNEL 104.3 to new heights. It will be so exciting to work with such passionate staffs and a talented, top-rated local morning show like ELLIOT IN THE MORNING. Smell my face!"
"We’re thrilled to add DAVE to our exceptional team of programmers at CC DC/BALTIMORE," added CC/WASHINGTON-BALTIMORE Pres./Market Mgr. HARTLEY ADKINS. "His unique experience working with Rock formats and exceptional talent make him the perfect person to lead our heritage DC 101 team as well as our brand new Rock Alternative station in BALTIMORE."
