Ober Shifts To News Dir. At WOWO-ESPN/Ft. Wayne
August 18, 2008 at 1:58 PM (PT)
FEDERATED MEDIA Talk WOWO-A and Sports WKJG-A (ESPN 1380)/FORT WAYNE Director of AM Operations ANDY OBER is moving into the role of News Director for the two stations, as well as PD for ESPN 1380. OBER will continue to oversee AM operations until a new OM is hired. The move is part of a realignment of management duties at the stations and an emphasis on local news.
That means the station is on the hunt for a new OM. GM MARK DEPREZ is looking for candidates with some News/Talk programming or APD experience and would love to hear from news directors looking to make the next step. The position requires someone who can get the most out of very talented talk hosts and make them even better.
The station also wants to hear about candidates' examples of marketing, promotion, and community involvement projects that they've conceived and executed, and wants someone who understands bottom-line financial issues as well as the value of a strong local news and programming commitment and great news writing, presentation, and on-air execution.
