Matt Malone is taking the APD position and afternoon drive slot at Cumulus’ X105.1 in Kansas City. Malone moves to KC from KURQ-FM in San Luis Obispo, CA, where he held similar positions. Prior to that, he was based in Chicago as Corporate Programming Assistant for Cumulus and APD for WLS-FM. Malone was also on-air at WLUM-FM/FM 102.1 in Milwaukee.
Donna Baker, Midwest Regional Vice President for Cumulus Media, said, “Matt’s passion for and extensive knowledge of the alternative format and his connection to listeners are the ideal fit for X105. OM Lance Tidwell and I are thrilled to welcome Matt back to Cumulus and the tremendous opportunity ahead for Matt and the X105 team.”
Malone said, “There are no words to cover how excited I am to get back with Cumulus and build this new Alternative brand at X105.1 in Kansas City. The opportunity to join a team along with Troy Hanson, Lance Tidwell, Lauren O’Neil, and Dan Stone, and rejoin Donna Baker, is a dream come true. I’m beyond ready to help make something special happen.”
