BEASLEY Top 40/Rhythmic WPOW (POWER 96)/MIAMI names EMMIS Urban AC WRKS (98.7 KISS) PD and Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97)/NEW YORK APD/MD JILL STRADA as its new PD.
STRADA came to WQHT in JULY 2007 from the PD post at COX MEDIA Top 40/Rhythmic WPYO (POWER 95.3)/ORLANDO. STRADA succeeds former WPOW PD TOM CALOCOCCI, who exited WPOW in APRIL (NET NEWS, 4/13).
"It’s an honor to be a part of legendary POWER 96!" STRADA said. "I’m ready to take the radio station, and our team, to a whole new level. The best part of our job is connecting with and getting to know the audience. People invite us into their lives; no matter what issues they’re dealing with -- break-ups, make-ups, hook-ups -- radio is always there. There’s nothing else like it and I can’t wait to experience that in MIAMI. My career has certainly come full circle, and I am thrilled to be back home with BEASLEY BROADCAST."
"Everyone I spoke to regarding JILL talked about her passion, her knowledge, her ability to build great teams… and her desire to win," BEASLEY/MIAMI VP/Market Manager JOE BELL said. "POWER 96 has been a well-loved, heritage MIAMI station for many years and I know JILL will help take it to new heights."
