XM SATELLITE RADIO has made a few programming changes. GEORGE TAYLOR MORRIS has been named Sr Dir./Original Programming, JOE BONADONNA has been named Sr. PD of the Heritage Rock/AAA cluster, and EARLE BAILEY has been named PD of Deep Tracks
On top of his promotion, MORRIS will continue to host Artist Confidential and his daily morning show on Deep Tracks. "GEORGE’s accomplishments as SPD for the heritage rock cluster and his talent in hosting the Artist Confidential series have been nothing short of phenomenal," SVP/Music Programming JON ZELLNER stated. "We're lucky to have him on our team."
As Sr. PD of the Heritage Rock/AAA cluster, BONADONNA will oversee the programming on Deep Tracks, Top Tracks, Big Tracks, The Loft, XM Café and Fine Tuning. "JOE has been with XM for over two years as PD of Top Tracks and Big Tracks and has done a terrific job in programming these two very successful channels," ZELLNER said. "He will continue in that role as well."
BAILEY "has been with XM from the beginning and is one of the most dedicated employees in the department," he continued. "There is no one better to continue the successful path that Deep Tracks has traveled since the channel signed on seven years ago."
