    Audacy has made multiple leadership promotions across its Country programming.
    Mark Anderson has been promoted to Regional Vice President overseeing WLKK Buffalo, WPAW-FM Greensboro, WDSY Pittsburgh, WBEE Rochester, and WGGY Wilkes-Barre. Anderson will continue to serve as Vice President of Programming for the company’s music stations in Pittsburgh including WDSY, Hot AC “100.7 Star” WBZZ, and as of today Hip Hop 660/107.3 WAMO.
    Chris Michaels rises from Operations Manager of the company’s Memphis cluster to Regional Brand Manager, where he will support the execution of programming, music and branding for the aforementioned stations. He will continue to retain his position in Memphis.
    107.9 KMLE Phoenix Brand Manager Drew Bland will add similar duties for “100.7 The Wolf” KKWF Seattle. Bland previously programmed KKWF from 2017 to 2020. He rejoined the company to lead KMLE last year.
    Under the new corporate restructuring, Regional Vice President John Foxx and Regional Brand Manager Justin Cole will oversee KILT-FM Houston, WUSY Chattanooga, WKIS Miami, WHLL Springfield MA, WXBK-HD2 New York and WRXL-HD2 Richmond.

Chris Michaels has been promoted to Regional Brand Manager, where he will support the execution of programming, music and branding for the aforementioned stations. Both moves are effective immediately.
    “Adding Mark Anderson and Chris Michaels to our country leadership team will help better execute our local brand strategies, give those markets more individualized attention and create more synergy within our country team,” said Tim Roberts, Country Format Vice President, Audacy. “We’re proud to elevate two hard working individuals and watching them take this next step within our organization.”
    “Audacy has the best country brands and the best country fans,” said Anderson. “I cannot wait to serve both in this new role! I’m grateful to Jeff Sottolano and Tim Roberts for this opportunity and to Kevin Callahan and John Foxx for welcoming me to the team.”
    Anderson has been programming radio brands for 25 years. He joined the company in its Pittsburgh market in 2010 as Operations Manager and was promoted to Vice President of Programming in 2017. He currently serves as Brand Manager of Y108 (WDSY-FM), 100.7 Star (WBZZ-FM) and the market’s newest brand, WAMO 107.3 (WAMO-AM). He has also served previous programming roles in St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Saginaw-Flint and Sault Ste. Marie, MI.
    “I am honored and excited to join the amazing team of Audacy country regional brand managers,” said Michaels. “I can’t wait to get started and work alongside leaders like Tim Roberts, Mark Anderson, Kevin Callahan and John Foxx.”
    Michaels joined Audacy in 2011 as Operations Manager for the company’s Memphis market. In this role, he oversaw music brands 94.1 The Wolf (WLFP-FM), FM 100 (WMC-FM) and 104.5 The River (WRVR-FM), while notably increasing ratings for the latter two from the top 10 to the top three in their core demos with women 25-49 and women 25-54. Previous stops include various programming and on-air roles at WABB-FM in Mobile, AL, WERO-FM in Greenville-New Bern, NC, and WAPE-FM in Jacksonville.
    Anderson and Michaels’ promotions are part of a country format realignment across Audacy’s 20 country stations. Under the new realignment, Regional Vice President John Foxx and Regional Brand Manager Justin Cole will oversee 100.3 The Bull (KILT-FM) in Houston, U.S. 101 (WUSY-FM) in Chattanooga, Kiss Country 99.9 (WKIS-FM) in Miami, Hall of Fame Country (WHLL-AM) in Springfield, New York’s Country HD2 in New York and Big 98.5 (WRXL-HD2) in Richmond.
