Rick Thomas To Exit PD Post At WBMP/New York
January 11, 2017 at 10:04 AM (PT)
After a nice run programming CBS Top 40 WBMP (AMP 92.3)/NEW YORK since 2014, RICK THOMAS will be leaving that post at the end of the week.
It's expected that CBS RADIO SVP/Programming And Music Initiatives MICHAEL MARTIN will oversee the station following THOMAS' departure at least on a temporary basis. He has been contacted for comment.
THOMAS told ALL ACCESS, "When you're coming up on the end of a contract, you begin to do some soul-searching as to what the best future for both career and family might be. I'm very thankful to CBS, CHRIS OLIVERO, MARC RAYFIELD, SCOTT HERMAN and MICHAEL MARTIN for their respect and understanding. I have begun engaging in conversations and will keep you posted. The programming team here at AMP/NEW YORK is the best crew in radio and I will miss them dearly."
THOMAS joined CBS in 2013 and turned around KRTH/LOS ANGELES and creating the Urban AC-hybrid at KTWV.
