David LaBrozzi is the new PD at Cumulus’ 95.5 PLJ in New York City. LaBrozzi takes over for Rick Gillette who left the company in January. He joins Cumulus Media from Entercom Baltimore, where he was VP of Programming for the company’s four-station cluster for 14 years. Mike Allan has been the interim PD at WPLJ since Gillette moved on.
Prior to Entercom Baltimore, LaBrozzi was Regional Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel/iHeart Media, overseeing stations in Pittsburgh, Wheeling, WV, and Johnstown, PA. LaBrozzi’s career includes programming stops in Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, and Nashville.
Chad Lopez, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Media-New York, said, “We’re excited to welcome Dave LaBrozzi to the heritage brand that is WPLJ. We look forward to what he’ll bring to the Big Apple. I want to thank Mike Allan as interim PD and the programming team at 95.5 for all of their hard work these last few months.”
LaBrozzi said, “WPLJ is truly one of America’s iconic radio stations. I am thrilled, honored, and humbled to join Chad Lopez, Dave Milner, Mike McVay, and the incredible team at 95.5 PLJ. While I can’t wait to get started in New York, I want to thank Entercom and CBS for a great experience and for being an important part of my life.”
