Jeff Kapugi has exited his position as CBS Radio Vice President of Country Programming and Program Director of “US 99” WUSN Chicago after five years.
WUSN has been in a heated battle with iHeartMedia’s “Big 95.5” WEBG in recent years. Both stations are on a ratings downswing with WUSN leading WEBG by a 2.2 to 2.0 share in the November ratings. As recent as September WUSN led 2.8 to 2.7.
The Chicago native joined WUSN in 2011 following a year overseeing CBS’ Hot AC “Y98” KYKY and AC 102.5 KEZK St. Louis. Prior to joining CBS he was Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Tribune Interactive in Chicago from 2008-2010. Most of his radio career was spent at Jacor/Clear Channel where he served as OM/PD of stations in Tampa including CHR 93.3 WFLZ, St. Louis, and finally Regional VP/Programming for Washington DC/Baltimore.
