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 back home in Bmore.  Upon graduation, he returned to , where he remained for nine years, as an on-air talent, APD, and within six years, Program Director.
