Entercom Country “93.1 The Wolf” WPAW Greensboro NC has promoted Clay ‘JD’ Walker from APD/MD to Program Director.
Walker has worked at WPAW for 11 years and takes the programming reins from Dale O’Brian. O’Brian is stepping down as PD but will remain with the station as morning host.
Entercom, the #1 creator of live, original, local audio content in the United States, and its Greensboro, NC station 93.1 The Wolf (WPAW-FM) announced the promotion of Clay Walker to Program Director. Clay was previously the Digital Integration Director and Assistant Program Director for the station. Previous Program Director Dale O’Brian, who held the role 1 year, stepped down from his role to spend more time with his family and focus on hosting the morning show.
“Clay Walker is a dyed-in-the-wool radio fanatic, interested in every aspect of the business,” said Brent Millar, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Entercom Greensboro. “He has long dreamed of having the opportunity to program and has devoted himself to doing his best to be ready when that time comes. It has come and we are proud to have him on the team. I also want to thank Dale for breathing new life into The Wolf, as proven by our very impressive 2016 versus 2017 ratings growth. We’re all very glad to know that Dale will continue to lead the ‘Wake Up with the Wolf’ morning show.”
Walker has been a part of WPAW-FM for 11 years. During this time, he conceptualized and executed Entercom’s CMA Award coverage, and the company’s “Count on Country Giving Tuesday” broadcast, in addition to album launch specials and digital initiatives.
