Cumulus Media announces that it has appointed Mike Duffy as PD for Active Rock WBSX (97.9X)/Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Duffy has over 20 years’ radio experience in Northeast Pennsylvania and joined Cumulus Media in April as midday host for 97.9X. He will retain his on-air duties while in his new role.
Chris Kenney, VP/Market Manager for Cumulus Media-Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, said, “We love having Mike here – He has the leadership qualities and passion you look for in a PD. He brings a great vibe to the station and a positive energy that is a huge benefit to our listeners and staff.”
Randy Savage, OM for the cluster, adds, “I am very excited to have Mike join the ranks of our programming team. He has demonstrated his ability to lead the 979X Team and knows how to win!”
Duffy said, “I’m incredibly grateful and excited for this opportunity at 97.9X. I’ve been fortunate getting to spend my entire career in my hometown radio market, but now I get to program a powerhouse rock station here as well! I’m psyched to be working with Chris Kenney once again, as well as work with and learn from some brilliant programming minds in Mike McVay, Troy Hanson and Jim Kurdziel.”
