CBS RADIO/WASHINGTON, D.C. has appointed MICHAEL SAUNDERS OM for its five-station cluster. Effective immediately, he will oversee both programming and operations for WPGC, WLZL, WIAD, WJFK and WHFS-A.
In addition to his cluster operations duties, SAUNDERS will focus his day-to-day attention on programming Top 409/Rhythmic WPGC, succeeding ROBERT SCORPIO, who exits.
Most recently SAUNDERS served as PD for CBS RADIO Top 40/Rhythmic WJHM (102 JAMZ)/ORLANDO. Prior to his run at WJHM, he had been PD at CLEAR CHANNEL Urban WWPR (POWER 105.1)/NEW YORK. "MICHAEL has proven he is an effective leader and a winning PD," CBS/WASHINGTON, D.C. SVP/Market Manager SAM ROGERS said. "I'm looking forward to working with him and utilizing his talents in a way that will make our operations at WPGC, and the cluster as a whole, work better for our listeners."
"It’s an honor to program a great heritage station like WPGC, and work with CBS RADIO’s cluster of stations in D.C.," SAUNDERS noted, "WJFK is already top of mind for D.C.-area sports fans, 94. 7 FRESH is among the fastest growing female-oriented stations in the market, and with WLZL, one of America’s greatest Spanish-language stations, we have much to look forward to in 2010."
