He replaces SID KELLY (ROBERT SIDLOSKI), who recently announced his move to sister Top 40 WYRG (ENERGY 93.9)/INDIANAPOLIS as PD, effective TODAY (8/6).
VP/Market Manager DON BOYD said, “I am very happy to see SID KELLY grow within the CUMULUS family as he takes on a new challenge in INDIANAPOLIS. We are fortunate to have deep talent here at CUMULUS MOBILE with one of the country’s top CHR programmers, JIMMY STEELE, already in the building. I could not be excited for the future of WABD under JIMMY’s direct leadership as he continues to evolve this legendary radio station.”
STEELE said, “I’m so proud of the growth we’ve seen on WABD over the past year under SID KELLY’s leadership. I’m pleased to see SID grow his career within CUMULUS and am excited to roll up my sleeves and splash back into my CHR roots. It’s an honor to be able to come to work each day and serve our talented CUMULUS MOBILE team as a partner to VP/Market Manager DON BOYD and collaborate with the likes of corporate programmers DOUG HAMAND and MIKE MCVAY. They are very supportive and for that, I am grateful.”
