Cox Media Group Promotes Chris Eagan To Atlanta Senior Director of Operations
In the new role Eagan will add oversight of Urban AC “Kiss 104.1” WALR following the exit of Senior Vice President of Programming Tony Kidd earlier this month. Eagan has been with Cox since 2008 when he programmed their then-owned “Star 99.9” WEZN Bridgeport CT. He moved to Atlanta in 2012 to his now former role overseeing WSRV and WSB-FM while also serving as AC/Hot AC Format Leader.
Cox Media Group has promoted Chris Eagan to Senior Director of Operations for its cluster in Atlanta, effective immediately. In this new, expanded role, Eagan will oversee programming for WSB-FM (B98.5), WSRV-FM (97-1 The River) and WALR-FM (Kiss 104.1). Eagan joined CMG in 2008 as Program Director at WEZN-FM (Star 99.9)/New Haven. In 2012, he assumed the role of Director of Branding and Programming, responsible for on-air programming for WSB-FM and WSRV-FM in Atlanta. In addition, he also consults six of CMG’s radio markets as AC/Hot AC Format Leader.
“Chris is an outstanding leader who excels with a rare and winning combination of strategic thinking and flawless execution,” said CMG Atlanta VP/Marketing, Audience and Newspaper Operations Donna Hall. “He is well-respected not only in radio but across all divisions of CMG, advocating for the brand and serving as a strong partner to his peers in TV and newspaper.”
“Cox Media Group is home to some of the best stations and talent in the media industry. I am excited for this new chapter in my career and look forward to continuing to grow and evolve these terrific Atlanta radio brands,” added Eagan.
