Mike Love Teams Up with AURN
Pittsburgh, PA–Veteran programmer Mike Love has joined American Urban Radio Networks (AURN) and will oversee the 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm syndicated daypart show currently entitled “The Doug Banks Radio Show”. Love has either programmed or served as an on air personality at some of the top urban stations in the country including WBLS-FM, New York; WPGC-FM, Washington, DC and KMJMFM St. Louis. Most recently he served as Urban Sr. Director of Programming and Distribution for Cumulus Media Networks.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work with AURN and build on the daypart the late Doug Banks held down for so many years. I’m assembling a solid team and it is my intent to dominate afternoons on urban adult stations,” said Love.
Recently Access.1 Communications took over full control of American Urban Radio Networks from Sheridan Broadcasting Networks. “Mike is our first hire under the new ownership” said Jerry Lopes, President of Program Operations and Affiliations. “I’ve known Mike and admired his work from afar.
