“John’s track record of success with his team in Appleton/Oshkosh, along with his outstanding client and community involvement made him the natural choice to lead our operations in Northeast Wisconsin,” said Mark Sullivan, regional vice president of Cumulus Media. “I’m excited for both John and our team members and I look forward to their many successes.”
Rowe said he is excited to lead both Wisconsin clusters on behalf of Cumulus.
“The combination of talent and quality programming in each market makes this an ideal role and provides a host of opportunities going forward,” he said. “My primary focus will be to enhance these great brands while meeting the needs
of both our listeners and advertisers.”
