In his new role, DJ Pup Dawg will be responsible for creating and executing the brand vision of the station as well as its musical direction. He will report to Dylan Sprague, the senior vice president of programming at iHeartMedia’s station group in Boston.

“Radio has given me the opportunities people dream of. I’m living the dream,” DJ Pup Dawg continued. “This was all made  possible with guidance from my boss and mentor, Dylan Sprague. I’m so grateful that he took the time to  develop me for this next chapter. I’ve come up in this business and made real life-long connections.  JAM’N is my family.”
