Cumulus Chicago has chosen Wade Linder as operations manager of WLUP(FM) and WKQX(FM) as well as program director of WLUP. Cumulus Atlanta says sales executive Hope Angelone has been appointed to general sales manager of WNNX(FM).
Linder replaces Jim Richards, who moved to Cumulus San Francisco as program director of KFOG(FM) and KSAN(FM).
Linder began his radio career in 1990 as music director at Minneapolis’ KQRS(FM). He then helped sign on alt rock-formatted KEGE(FM) as music director and later flipped the station to active rock. He was then promoted to PD of KXXR(FM) in Minneapolis and oversaw strategy and day-to-day operations of the station for 17 years.
Angelone was previously director of sales for Entercom’s four stations in Norfolk, Va. Prior to that, she held the GSM post at Clear Channel’s Hartford, Conn., station cluster, after serving as local sales manager and director of sales for WKCI(FM), WELI(FM) and WAVZ(FM).
