CLEAR CHANNEL/PHILADELPHIA Dir./Operations BRIAN CHECK has announced that TIM "ROMEO" HERBSTER will join Top 40 WIOQ (Q102)/PHILADELPHIA as PD and Dir./Digital Content for CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/PHILADELPHIA. In addition, he will host afternoons on Q102 beginning DECEMBER 14th. This move displaces Q102 PD TRACY AUSTIN.
CHECK said, "We are very fortunate to bring on someone with TIM's vision, creativity and experience both on-air and on-line."
HERBSTER, best known as "ROMEO", from his run as the top-rated on-air night talent on Z100/NEW YORK from 2002-08, most recently was VP/Global Programming & Marketing at GOOM RADIO. He noted, "I am truly blessed to have this opportunity to steer the ship of one of AMERICA's true heritage Top 40s. Big thank you to OM BRIAN CHECK, SVP/Programming TOM POLEMAN, and President/Market Manager JOHN ROHM for this opportunity."
HERBSTER also told ALL ACCESS, "I am thrilled to be able to program and be on the air in PHILLY at Q102. To be able to work with a cluster of great web sites is just the icing on the cake. I look forward to working with SVP/Digital Programming PAUL MIRALDI again."
And, ALL ACCESS hears that there are more good things on the horizon for TIM. Standby for more, soon.
AUSTIN told ALL ACCESS, "I am very proud of what we did in establishing the ELVIS DURAN SHOW in the market and scoring strong ratings, #1 18-34 women and Top 3 Persons 18-34, in the last four months. I'll be taking some time off and then exploring new opportunities in 2010."
