RADIO FOR MILWAUKEE Variety WYMS (88NINE RADIO)/MILWAUKEE has named SAM VAN HALLGREN as Dir./Programming and Content and SCOTT MULLINS as MD. VAN HALLGREN has served as the station’s APD since MARCH 2008. MULLINS has been the station’s afternoon-drive host since RADIOMILWAUKEE launched its new format in FEBRUARY 2007.
Executive Dir. J. MIKEL ELLCESSOR said VAN HALLGREN will continue to play a pivotal role in the station’s commitment to bringing the voices and thoughts of MILWAUKEE residents to air. "SAM's influence on RADIOMILWAUKEE's community engagement mission can't be overstated. He genuinely cares for the people and issues and that shape MILWAUKEE, and he brings tremendous energy and drive to making RADIOMILWAUKEE a vital part of the city's cultural landscape."
ELLCESSOR said that MULLINS’ emphasis on MILWAUKEE music will remain. "SCOTT's on-air work has made him a very visible part of RADIOMILWAUKEE, but he's also been slaving away in the shadows, shaping, defining and evolving our sound, since launch."
