CBS Radio Detroit has promoted Tim Roberts to vice president of music programming for WYCD(FM), WOMC(FM) and WDZH(FM). He most recently served as those stations’ operations manager and program director.
This summer has been good to Roberts. In June, he was inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame at a ceremony held in Nashville, Tenn.
Roberts is a Detroit native and has been involved in radio programming and on-air work for over 38 years, during which time he has programmed KHAK(FM) Cedar Rapids, Iowa; KDRK(FM) Spokane, Wash.; KSAN(FM) and KNEW(FM) San Francisco; WKKT(FM) Charlotte, N.C.; and WWWW(FM), Detroit.
He then joined Cumulus Media as Midwest operations manager, where he oversaw more than 25 multicity stations, and formatted radio stations including country, rock, top 40, talk and classic hits.
Roberts joined CBS Radio Detroit in 2005 as PD for WYCD(FM), and then added ops manager to his title when he took on WOMC(FM). This past fall, WDZH(FM) was added to his responsibilities.
“It’s truly been a whirlwind experience for me being inducted in to the Country Radio Hall of Fame — an honor that has been beyond amazing — and now to be elevated to this position couldn’t be more thrilling,” added Roberts.
CBS Radio also owns and operates WWJ(AM), WXYT(FM) and WXYT(AM) in the Detroit market.
