Charese Frugé has joined Urban One as CHR Format Captain and Program Director for both Top 40 WNOW (100.9 RadioNow)/Indianapolis and KROI (92.1 RadoNow)/Houston. Frugé will be based out of Indianapolis but will be commuting back and forth to Houston.
“I’m very excited to be a part of the Radio One Family and to work with such great brands.” Frugé tells FMQB. “The leadership and talent in this company is inspiring and I am so thrilled to be working with DJ Riddler again in both markets. Programming in Houston again is bittersweet and Peyton Manning won a Super Bowl for Indy, a fantastic reminder that every day is game day in this business.”
In addition, DJ Riddler has been promoted to Assistant Program Director and Music Director for both WNOW and KROI. It’s a reunion for both who worked together previously at CBS Radio Tp 40 KKHH/Houston.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity that Urban One has given me and I’m excited to be re-united with Charese Fruge.” DJ Riddler tells FMQB. “I’m looking forward to helping strengthen the Radio Now brands in Houston and now in Indianapolis.”
Terri Thomas continues as Operations Manager for the Houston Market and as PD for Urban AC KMJQ (Magic 102.1) and Rhythmic Top 40 KBXX (97.9 The Box).
