Don Brake is the new Operations Manager for Cumulus Savannah, GA, and Program Director for KIX 96 (WJCL-FM). Brake is moving from Beaumont TX where he has been PD and host on KD 101.7 (KAYD-FM).
“We are very excited to welcome Don to the Cumulus Savannah family. Don’s extensive experience and wealth of knowledge in both programming and operations will be crucial to maintaining and increasing Cumulus Savannah’s market dominance,” said Eric Mastel, Regional Vice President. “Gerry McCracken (soon to be retired) did an exemplary job growing WJCL to the levels it has achieved. We will always be grateful for his contributions.”
“I have to thank Charlie Cook, Doug Hamand and Elizabeth Blackstock for opening the door to Cumulus for me at KAYD in Beaumont. We have made great progress with the station,” said Brake. “My wife America, my daughter Naomi and I are excited about our planned long-term relocation to Savannah. I also look forward to continuing the work started by Gerry McCracken with KIX 96 WJCL.”
