Rob Cressman is the new Program Director for Hubbard’s rocker WDRV-FM in Chicago. Cressman joins Hubbard from iHeartMedia in Indianapolis where he served as Senior VP of Programming for WFBQ, WOLT, WNDE, and WUBG for the past two years. Prior to Indianapolis, Cressman spent five years in New England where he oversaw programming and operations for Saga’s WAQY and WLZX. He also worked at CBS Radio for 10 years. Cressman replaces Curtis Johnson who left the station earlier this month.
Cressman says, “I am thrilled to have been invited to join the incredible talents at Hubbard Radio-Chicago and The Drive. WDRV has always represented the platinum standard for classic rock radio and I am anxious to uphold and amplify its legendary foundation. Many thanks to Greg Solk, John Gallagher, and Fred Jacobs for finding my experience and qualifications worthy of such a distinguished honor.”
Greg Solk, Senior VP of Programming for Hubbard Radio, says, “Finding the perfect programming partner for The Drive was indeed a challenge. We needed someone who understood the rich history The Drive has had in Chicago and who could balance our past achievements with the need for innovation that is vital to our future success. I’ve been a fan of Rob’s work for many years, and look forward to watching him lead The Drive’s incredibly talented staff to new heights.”
