CLEAR CHANNEL/CHARLOTTE OM STEVE GEOFFERIES reports to ALL ACCESS that Top 40 WHQC (CHANNEL 96-1)/CHARLOTTE, most recently WIBT (NET NEWS 8/15) has tapped sister Top 40 WZJZ (THE NEW Y100)/FT. MYERS APD/middayer BOOMER as its new PD. BOOMER is taking over for Interim PD/night stud SPECIAL ED who remains APD/MD, beginning AUGUST 29th.
GEOFFERIES told ALL ACCESS, "BOOMER's experience growing huge brands like KSLZ make him a perfect fit for CHANNEL 96-1. We're ready for him to get here and put his expertise to work."
BOOMER told ALL ACCESS, "CHARLOTTE is one of AMERICA's great cities with some good radio already on the dial. I am extremely jazzed to be joining such a talented team and must thank SVPP CLAY HUNNICUTT, CHARLOTTE Market Manager CHARLIE WILKINSON and OM STEVE GEOFFERIES for such an amazing opportunity to lead CHANNEL 96-1 to new heights. Leaving FT. MYERS is bittersweet, as I've thoroughly enjoyed working with OM LOUIS KAPLAN under the leadership of Market Manager SHERRI SANCHEZ and owe them my sincere gratitude for allowing me to be part of this crew. I also must extend huge thanks to ROD PHILLIPS and BRAD HARDIN, two of the absolute best in the biz. I can't wait to get to work!"
In addition to having programmed (Z107.7)/ST. LOUIS, BOOMER previously programmed WRVQ (Q94)/RICHMOND.
