Cumulus Media announces that it has promoted four programming professionals across its Detroit cluster. Matt Laurenic rises from Producer to Executive Producer of the Blaine Fowler Morning Show on Hot AC WDVD. Mike Gagliano becomes FM Production Director and Programming Coordinator from his previous role as Production Director and Adam Ficorelli, formerly with the Street Team, was named Promotions Manager/Swing Air Talent for Country WDRQ.
Cumulus also announces the promotion of Kendall Taylor as APD/Midday Host for WDVD. Taylor was previously WDVD weekend personality and interim Midday Host. She has held on-air positions at radio stations in Dallas, Norfolk and Myrtle Beach and was overnight jock at WDVD in 2005. In addition to her duties at WDVD, Taylor will continue to be heard as a host on Westwood One’s 24-hour Hot AC format.
Robby Bridges, Director of FM Programming, Cumulus Media-Detroit, said. “To better reflect the scope of their existing duties at Cumulus-Detroit, we are excited to promote Matt Laurenic from Producer to Executive Producer of the Blaine Fowler Morning Show, Mike Gagliano to FM Production Director and Programming Coordinator and Adam Ficorelli to Promotions Manager/Swing air talent for WDRQ. Congratulations to our all-star team!”
Bridges added, “From her mad social media and production skills to her ability to create meaningful, memorable content over 10-second song intros, and her positive team-oriented attitude, Kendall has it all and really stood out as the perfect choice to compliment our personality-driven line-up at 96.3 WDVD.”
Taylor said, “I couldn’t be prouder or more excited to be part of the WDVD team. I gotta thank John Shomby and Mike McVay for being long-time believers in me and thanks to Robby Bridges, Mike Wheeler and Rob Roberts for this amazing opportunity in Detroit. Let’s rock this!”
