DIAL GLOBAL RADIO NETWORKS has added programmers JOHN ST. JOHN and GARY THOMPSON to their team. EVP/Programming BEAU PHILLIPS commented, "While many companies are minimizing the importance of programming talent, DIAL GLOBAL is investing in quality people. The upside to all of the recent radio layoffs is that DIAL GLOBAL has been able to acquire some tremendous talent. We’re thrilled to have JOHN and GARY join our programming team."
JOHN ST. JOHN will lead DIAL GLOBAL’s Classic Country format and also assist with programming the company’s localized country formats in OMAHA.
GARY THOMPSON will program two formats for DIAL GLOBAL, overseeing both the syndicated version of JACK-FM and SAM (Simply About Music).
