James VanOsdol

From the RAMP Newsletter...

Cumulus Media Chicago has promoted market vet James VanOsdol to the newly created position of Programming Content Specialist for Classic Rock WLUP (97.9 The Loop) and Alternative WKQX. In his newly enhanced capacity, VanOsdol will "produce content that increases interaction with the social media channels for WLUP and WKQX." VanOsdol will continue to produce and host Demo 312, the weekly Chicago music show on 101 WKQX and do part-time on-air on The Loop. VanOsdol's many years of Chicago radio experience date back to the '90s -- both on-air and behind the scenes on WKQX, WGN, WXRT, WZZN and WTMX. "JVO" is also a published author of two books and is a successful podcaster. Wade Linder, Operations Manager of Cumulus Media Chicago said, "James is a well-regarded Chicago radio vet and a perfect fit with our all-star team." VanOsdol commented, "Like any Chicago kid, I grew up listening to the Loop. It's an honor to be part of Chicago's most legendary rock station and I'm honored to serve the station and WKQX in this expanded capacity to create exciting content that listeners will enjoy across the stations’ social platform, as well as on-air."
