Salem Media Group named a new leader of its station cluster in the nation’s capital.
General Manager Tom Moyer will retire at the end of December, and David Howard has been promoted from general sales manager to general manager for the Washington market.
Salem CEO Dave Santrella described the D.C. cluster, including WAVA(FM), as “crown jewels in Salem’s portfolio of stations.”
Moyer has been with the company for three decades, and Salem officials said he played a major role in the development of the cluster. Salem Senior Vice President Allen Power said in the announcement, “Tom Moyer has been a part of the very fiber of our DC cluster over the past 30 years.”
David Howard joined Salem DC in 2020; he has worked in the DC market with iHeartMedia, CBS/Infinity and Urban One.
Chuck Olmstead also moves from local ministry director to the new role of station manager for WAVA(AM/FM) and Sirius XM Family Talk.
