CUMULUS Country WSM-F (95.5 THE WOLF)/NASHVILLE PD/morning co-host CHARLEY CONNOLLY has exited. CUMULUS SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES has named APD/PM driver RUSSEL P as PD.
JEFFRIES said: "RUSSEL's contribution to the success of THE WOLF/NASHVILLE has been remarkable. During my time of programming THE WOLF/DALLAS on a daily basis, RUSSEL was a key 'go to' person. His work ethic, prior to DALLAS and NASHVILLE, as PD in Ft. MYERS and SHREVEPORT, is second to none. We thank CHARLEY CONNOLLY for his tenure and wish him the best in his future endeavors."
RUSSEL P can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and (615) 321-1067.
Joining MD DEANNA LEE for mornings will be well-known NASHVILLE personality, WOLF middayer RICK MARINO. RICK spent many years in morning drive at SOUTH CENTRAL AC WJXA/NASHVILLE and CITADEL Country WKDF/NASHVILLE. Taking over MARINO's midday show will be CUMULUS sister station KPLX/DALLAS APD/air personality SMOKEY RIVERS, who will be tracking the shift from the big D.
JEFFRIES added: "RICK is a world-class morning talent. His successful history of mornings in NASHVILLE makes him the perfect choice for mornings at THE WOLF/NASHVILLE."
