Cumulus has appointed 35-year radio veteran John Dimick as VP of Programming Operations. Dimick will officially join Cumulus on June 1 and will report to Senior Vice President, Content and Programming Mike McVay.
Before retiring, Dimick was Senior VP of Programming and Operations for Lincoln Financial Media. Dimick has also programmed stations in markets across the country, including Salt Lake City, Columbus, OH, Seattle, San Diego, and New York City.
About getting back in the business, Dimick said, “I’m very happy that Mike McVay wouldn’t buy my ‘retirement from the industry’ thinking! What the new senior management team at Cumulus is building is extraordinary and compelling. I am flattered that Mike and Bob Walker believe I can help advance the growth and success of the stations and the remarkable Cumulus platform. Joining the corporate programming team with people like Greg Frey, Doug Hamand, Dr. Ed Cohen, Val Garris, Ralph Cipolla, and the other pros at Cumulus is very exciting.”
