BREAKING NEWS: Sue Wilson Jumps From Fish to QMX

Nothing much more to say on this but to get it up here:

Salem CCM WFHM/95.5 "The Fish" program director Sue Wilson is a little bit country.

Or, she will be, when she takes a new job as program director at Rubber City Radio country WQMX/94.9 in the Akron market.

AllAccess reports that her last day at The Fish is November 24th. She'll take the programming chair vacated by Kevin Mason, who left the Akron country powerhouse for a Nashville record company gig...

Congratulations to Sue,and welcome home to her as she at one time worked at WKDD. Program Director at WDOK where she guided the station to #1 in the ratings and was rewarded with an automobile from the ownership(THE GOOD OLD DAYS IN CLEVELAND WHEN WE HAD LOCAL OWNERSHIP).

Whatever happened to Rob Schuler? Is he still in the area, and in broadcast? I know he worked with Sue at WDOK for a long time, and was also the voice of WVIZ.

WHAT A CHANGE ANSWER IS SIMPLE WHY THE MOVE THE FISH=SALEM CORP. AKRON COUNTRY WQMX=LOCAL OWNERSHIP,RUBBER CITY A REAL NO BRAINER. The big question though when will we see some POSSIBLE IF ANY air talent changes coming to 'QMX,and is she just in charge of 94.9 or is she also,like Kevin was an OM. She did wonders with WDOK and it's sister station WRMR. Let's face it WAKR'S music mix is A TRAIN WRECK,which some insiders are stunned considering you have 2 highly respected programmers in CHUCK COLLINS/BOB ALLEN. One more question when will Sue get Ted Alexander to join her with his knowledge in engineering and being a great air-talent when or if he joins and which of the 3 clusters he becomes an air-talent,my vote WAKR afternoon drive live not voiced tracked.

I was just thinking Miss Wilson had spent a great deal of time at "The Fish". Driving it to what I believe is the highest potential it has in the market. She is a very savey programmer and will continue to do well with the cookie cutter format style. Not trying to insult her, she is a great programmer, has done well and has a great history and future. Just don't look for incredible concepts and new ideas anytime soon
