RADIO ONE ANNOUNCED CHANGES IN LOCAL RADIO LEADERSHIP
A President Retires and a Regional Leader Returns
SILVER SPRING, MD…March 1, 2016 – Today, Radio One announced the impending retirement of Chris Wegmann, President, Radio Group for Radio One effective April 1, 2016. In October 2015, Radio One, the nation’s largest multi-media company owned by and serving African-Americans announced Wegmann’s retirement. The date was unknown at the time and has since been solidified.
Wegmann, a seasoned radio broadcaster with over 35 years of experience joined Radio One in 2009 as the Regional Vice President and General Manager in Dallas, TX and St. Louis, MO, after leading industry organizations such as COX Radio, Clear Channel and Signature Broadcasting to name a few. His ability to deliver top end and bottom line results propelled his career at Radio One to Regional Vice President and General Manager in Washington, DC and ultimately to his current role as President of the local radio business in 2013.
Unsure of what the ultimate future holds for him, Wegmann was certain about two things, “I’m looking forward to retiring to the farm with my lovely wife Eva and spending my days in woodworking– building boats for now. Nevertheless, I will miss the wonderful people at Radio One I’ve grown quite fond of over the years and I’m thankful for the opportunity to have led the radio group. I believe that what I’ve helped to build will continue to prosper while I spend much anticipated time hunting and fishing.”
Continuing to position itself for the future and strengthen its management team, Radio One also announced the return ofDeon Levingston as the General Manager of Indianapolis and Regional Vice President of Detroit and St. Louis.
