COX RADIO/TAMPA's BRIAN BLACK has given notice, and is heading off to his first PD gig -- although we can't say just where just yet.
Said BLACK, "SUNDAY was my last day at COX RADIO and my last weekend shift at Alternative WSUN (97X)/TAMPA. I had been doing nights on sister WPOI (101.5 THE POINT) and morning traffic on all six COX stations until budget cuts a couple of months ago -- and actually did a couple of farewell shifts on THE POINT over the weekend as well. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride here in TAMPA BAY and I have learned so much from 97X PD SHARK and longtime market legend TOM PALEVEDA. I am sad to be leaving such a great station and such a tremendous group of people, but opportunity is knocking elsewhere."
WSUN part-timer GEO will be taking over BLACK's SUNDAY afternoon show in addition to his existing SATURDAY night shift.
