Syndicator SOVEREIGN CITY COMMUNICATIONS has promoted VP/Programming JOEL DEARING to VP/Format Development, then ups ROB MOORE to VP/Programming. DEARING was instrumental in the launch of the inaugural OASIS format, including its flagship offering "WENDY in Your Oasis," while MOORE served as a consultant in the program and helped prep it for national distribution.
"As our top broadcast scientist, JOEL was an integral member of the team that has launched WENDY’s program nationally, and we look forward to his continued contributions in this new arena," SOVEREIGN CITY Pres./COO JOSEPH R. GIGANTI stated. "Now that her show and the Oasis format are off and running, we've asked JOEL to begin sampling how our ‘secret sauce’ tastes when mixed with another key format that we've identified for development in the coming months."
"I am delighted and thrilled with this new assignment," DEARING said. "The challenges facing radio today bring new opportunities for a cutting-edge company like SOVEREIGN CITY, and I'm honored to be a part of that."
"ROB’s experience and expertise has made a tremendous and very positive impact on our programming efforts as we move forward with WENDY’s show and other dayparts we are preparing for launch," GIGANTI stated. "The more time he spent working with Wendy and our staff, the more apparent it became that he was a natural fit to join our team on a full time basis as VP/Programming."
"This past month at SOVEREIGN CITY has been one of the most exciting and the most rewarding experiences of my career," MOORE said. "The opportunity to work with a great team of radio professionals on a ground-breaking and very positive radio format is truly invigorating. I am excited and delighted as we move forward with the national rollout of WENDY in Your Oasis and the development of new and engaging radio offerings that we'll introduce in the future."
"We have identified at least seven formats that we believe would fit well within the caliber and style of programming we are developing," "GIGANTI added. "We look forward to the adventure of bringing these products from concept to fruition in the next few years."
