OMW hears it is official - Clear Channel Cleveland top 40 WAKS/96.5 "KISS FM" program director Dan Mason is exiting the station, heading for the PD slot at legendary Miami CC sister top 40 outlet WHYI "Y100".
APD/MD/afternoon driver Kasper has been tapped as acting program director while the station searches for Mason's permanent replacement.
UPDATE: AllAccess quotes CC South Florida regional programming VP Dave Denver on the move: "Dan's an exciting programmer. We love his promotional mind and passion for the format. He has proven himself at WAKS taking that from a baby startup to a successful Top 40 within CLEAR CHANNEL. We think he's going to bring all that programming expertise to our successful Y100 brand for the youthful culture of SOUTH FLORIDA."
