CURTIS MEDIA Oldies WWMY (Y102.9)/RALEIGH has named SHAWN MATTHEWS as the station’s OM and DOUG PURTEE as middays/Imaging Dir. MATTHEWS will continue to serve in CURTIS MEDIA GROUP’s Web Design/Interactive Media Department.
Before joining CURTIS MEDIA DIGITAL MEDIA department, MATTHEWS was morning host and PD for CAPSAN MEDIA’s radio properties on the Outer Banks of NORTH CAROLINA. Currently doing part-time on-air work at Y102.9, PURTEE was formerly OM OPUS BROADCASTING/TALLAHASSEE, FL and Asst. OM for CLEAR CHANNEL/CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA.
"The group we've assembled at Y102.9 is nothing short of an Oldies dream team," CURTIS
MEDIA SVP and Y102.9 GM TRIP SAVERY said. "SHAWN and DOUG join (morning host) JIM HARRISON and (afternoon personality) BILL CAMPBELL to create a ‘Fab Four’ of Classic Hits talent that’s unmatched in this region."
CAMPBELL is stepping down as Y102.9 PD to concentrate on afternoons and his voiceover business.
