NEXTMEDIA/CHICAGO GM PATRICK PENDERGAST has named SCOTT KOSAK as Station Manager of Classc Hits WERV (95.9 THE RIVER)/AURORA, IL. KOSAK will assume duties as of AUGUST 8th. KOSAK was formerly an Account Executive for CBS Country WUSN (US 99)/CHICAGO, promoted to Local Sales Manager, then Motorsports Marketing Manager for the nation’s largest NASCAR affiliate. KOSAK left WUSN in 2008 to open LEFT TURN MARKETING.
"Having moved to the NAPERVILLE area over 12 years ago," said KOSAK, "I remember when 95.9 FM was launched as 'THE RIVER,' and I have always marveled at how often I see the station out and about at retailers, festivals, and concerts throughout the FOX VALLEY area. As 95.9, THE RIVER continues in this community-focused role, I look forward to also expanding its digital presence and growing it into a full-fledged entertainment and information resource while continuing to provide incredible opportunities for engagement between the residents of the Western Suburbs and the local businesses who serve those residents."
Said PENDERGAST, "We were fortunate to have an outstanding array of candidates to lead the rich tradition that is 95.9 THE RIVER and we settled on SCOTT. He brings a wealth of radio, marketing and digital knowledge to help us grow a major media outlet super serving the AURORA, NAPERVILLE and FOX VALLEY area. THE RIVER, its listeners and advertisers deserve the full time focus and attention that SCOTT will be able to deliver. We made the right call."
