CLEAR CHANNEL/CHICAGO Pres./Market Manager EARL JONES also announced TODAY the promotion of RICK O’DELL as PD of Smooth Jazz WNUA/CHICAGO effective immediately.
"RICK O’DELL is an icon in CHICAGO radio," said JONES. "This is a natural promotion for RICK. He has been the backbone of WNUA for almost 20 years. RICK knows the station and the music. Most importantly, he knows the listeners and the community. This promotion is a win-win all the way around."
"WNUA is a true heritage brand and station because an awful lot of sharp, talented people have sat in the programmer's chair over the years," said O’DELL. "I have tried to learn something from each of them, and I'm grateful for the chance to build on their extraordinary foundation. I owe a big thanks to CLEAR CHANNEL’s EARL JONES and DARREN DAVIS for this unique opportunity."
