The Chicago native and former US-99 PD has landed in D.C. From Tom Taylor's NOW column...
Jeff Kapugi has generally been a lifer at iHeart and its predecessors, having joined Jacor in 1989 (the Randy Michaels days). He’s been a programming executive in Tampa, St. Louis and Washington-Baltimore (hold onto that thought for a moment). Jeff followed Randy Michaels to Chicago and Tribune, as Senior VP/COO of Tribune Interactive, and until last December he was VP/Programming for CBS Radio’s country “US 99.5” WUSN Chicago. Now after being a “free agent at large” (as he says on LinkedIn), he’s coming back to iHeart and the D.C. market. He’ll be the direct PD at country WMZQ and also the “Region Senior VP of Programming” for Washington and Baltimore. Michael Preacher carries the unusual title of iHeart’s President for the Washington Region and also “Government Initiatives.” Meg Stevens is iHeart’s EVP/Programming for the Northeast.
