Just arrived in my e-mail box. CBS Radio in Chicago has a new programming boss...
Todd Cavanah has been named Vice President of programming for CBS RADIO Chicago, it was announced today by Tim Pohlman, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Chicago. In this new role, Cavanah will work closely with the market’s six brands including WBBM-FM (Top 40), WJMK-FM (Classic Hits), WUSN-FM (Country), WXRT-FM (Adult Alternative), WBBM-AM/WCFS-FM (News), and WSCR-AM (Sports). Cavanah will focus on long-term programming strategy and identifying opportunities that will continue to drive station ratings for the CBS RADIO Chicago stations.
Cavanah has been the PD of at least two of those stations (WBBM & WJMK), so he does seem like a natural choice.
