Dion Summers/VP Music Programming-Urban/SiriusXM
Dion Summers started out as a high school intern at Baltimore’s Top 40, WBSB (B104). The station changed format to AC when he was 15 and he called to complain. The on-air jock referred his complaint to the GM. Within 10 minutes of speaking with him, he offered Dion an internship! Summers said he learned two things from the situation: “Radio could be kinda cool…and my big mouth may actually get me somewhere in the world!”
From B104, he attended Syracuse University where he was very involved in the student-run radio station, WJPZ. During the Summer before his senior year, he began doing PT on-air work at WERQ back home in Bmore. Upon graduation, he returned to WERQ, where he remained for nine years, as an on-air talent, APD, and within six years, Program Director.
