Cumulus Rotates PDs In Three Markets
February 9, 2010 at 2:00 PM (PT)
CUMULUS SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES tells ALL ACCESS of three significant PD moves within the company involving three of its Top 40 stations. JEFFRIES explained, "My trip to INDY on FRIDAY completed the circle in our trifecta PD rotation. This is a tri-win as all three PDs seek other future CUMULUS opportunities.
"JEFF ANDREWS has done an absolutely fantastic job with the launch and ratings growth of the new i94/INDIANAPOLIS. His dedication as PD and air talent have included 202 days on the air (including weekends) out of 206 days on the job. Congratulations, JEFF. Your dedication represents the CUMULUS Gold Standard. JEFF looks forward to joining heritage Top 40 WHHY (Y102)/MONTGOMERY as PD.
"STEVE SMITH is a veteran CUMULUS PD with five years of big numbers and consistency at legendary WHHY (Y102). STEVE has requested assignment over the past couple of years at WZYP/HUNTSVILLE. Request granted, effective FEBRUARY 22nd, as STEVE will serve as OM over the cluster and PD/afternoons at WZYP."
JEFFRIES rounded out the changes: "Our most recent CUMULUS PD/OM, JOE KELLY, makes a quick move from HUNTSVILLE to his MIDWEST roots as cluster OM in INDIANAPOLIS and PD/afternoon drive on i94. JOE will take up the 24/7 dedication that JEFF ANDREWS championed. i94 is in full-throttle launch mode and requires 7 days a week presence and attention which JOE will embrace as he is back home in the MIDWEST near his family.
"We have three happy campers as CUMULUS is happy to make these transfer requests."
