Cumulus Media has announced that it has promoted Producer and Digital Content Director Doug MacGunnigle to Assistant Program Director of NewsTalk 99.7 and AM 630 WPRO and AM 790/WPRV-AM in Providence, RI, effective immediately.
MacGunnigle started at WPRO in 2002 as a weekend board operator, soon branching out to production and on-air duties on Hot 106 and 92 PRO FM.
WPRO and WPRV Program Director Neil Larrimore said: “Doug has been an integral part of WPRO-AM and WPRV-AM for many years, and has served as a backbone through a particularly tough period of change over the last 24 months. It’s the perfect time to start him on the next step of his career. I’m proud to name him as Assistant Program Director.”
MacGunnigle said: “I’m ecstatic to be working with Neil and the fantastic team at WPRO in this new role. It’s a thrill to be working with such talent on a talk station that’s live and local for 16 hours a day – a true rarity in today’s radio landscape. I look forward to helping bring WPRO into the future with informative, entertaining, and compelling content.”
