Roxy Myzal To Retire


After a 42-year career in the music industry, including 16 at the United Stations Radio Networks, the popular and influential Roxy Myzal will be relinquishing her work duties and taking it easy, as of December 31, 2017. This announcement comes from USRN’s EVP/Programming, Andy Denemark, with whom Myzal has worked since early 2001 at the company’s New York offices.

J. Roxy Myzal started out in Boston in 1975 as the director of the Boston Record Pool, an organization of disco DJs. Roxy attained notoriety in the music and broadcasting industry as the Music Director of New York’s WXLO-FM (known as “99X, Rockin’ The Apple In Stereo” before it flipped formats to become “98.7 Kiss-FM”). She went on to high-profile promotion jobs at Atlantic Records and Chrysalis Records based in New York, and then to Rolling Stone magazine where she worked on the highly successful syndicated rock radio show Rolling Stone’s Continuous History of Rock and Roll. Several other industry jobs followed.

In 2018 and beyond you can reach Roxy via email at [email protected].
