CLEAR CHANNEL RVPP BILL CAHILL has announced that Top 40 WRVQ (Q94)/RICHMOND has selected former sister Top 40 KSLZ (Z107.7)/ST. LOUIS PD BOOMER as its new PD.
BOOMER begins FEBRUARY 1st and replaces WAYNE COY, who recently left radio to join CONSOLIDATED MEDIA (NET NEWS 11/3/05). As of 2/1, BOOMER will take over for Acting PD/APD/morning man DARRIN STONE, who will continue his APD/wakeup duties.
CAHILL told ALL ACCESS, "We looked at a lot of great candidates and BOOMER just stood out, not only for his size, but for his large sense of creativity and passion for great radio. We're excited about having him join Q94."
ALL ACCESS heard from BOOMER, who said, "It truly is a thrill for me to join the CLEAR CHANNEL/RICHMOND team and take the lead at one of America's great heritage Top 40s, WRVQ. As any real radio pro knows, this station has been doing top-notch Top 40 radio for decades and has aged very well. I look forward to continuing & expanding the station?s success, working closely with SVP/Programming MARC CHASE, RVP/Market Manager RUTH STOUTERMIRE, RVPP BILL CAHILL and the talented Q94 staff already in place to make great radio in RICHMOND in 2006 and beyond!"
