Cox Media Group has appointed Darren Moore as VP/GM of CMG Ohio effective immediately. He will oversee CMG Ohio operations, including news, programming, sales, digital, engineering, production and community affairs for WHIO-TV, 95.3 and 101.1 The Eagle (WZLR), 1290 and 95.7 WHIO, and K99.1 New Country (WHKO-FM), in Dayton, Ohio.
Moore joined CMG 26 year ago as an intern for WPXI(TV) in Pittsburgh, launching a career built on his early childhood memories of visiting the station with his father, a former CMG employee. After finishing his internship, he relocated to Charlotte to work as an account executive for the newly launched WAXN-TV, before returning to Pittsburgh where he eventually became director of sales at WPXI.
“Darren’s passion for people, the broadcasting industry and CMG is infectious and inspiring,” said Paul Curran, EVP of Television at CMG.
