Cumulus Media has appointed Jenna Tucker as Digital Director for its Indianapolis cluster.
Tucker will be responsible for the digital and social media for Cumulus’ three stations in Indianapolis working on strategy to increase the company’s digital footprint in the market. She will also host middays on Country 95.5 WFMS. She joins the company from Bonneville Country 105.1 KNCI Sacramento where she hosted middays as ‘Jenna Rae’.
Tucker began her career in her native Fort Wayne hosting middays at Rock “98.9 The Bear” WBYR and also worked at Alpha Media Country “98.7 The Bull” KUPL Portland before joining KNCI in November 2017.
CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it has named Jenna Tucker as Digital Director for its three-station group in Indianapolis. In this newly created position, Jenna will manage the digital and social media platforms of each of Cumulus Indianapolis’ station brands (Country WFMS-FM, Classic Hits WJJK-FM, and Top 40 WYRG-FM). She will work collectively with the programming, promotions and sales teams to strategically enlarge Cumulus Indianapolis’ digital footprint while engaging our audience and creating unique opportunities for our advertisers. In addition to her role as Digital Director, Tucker will also be on-air as Midday Personality for WFMS 95.5. Her appointment is effective December 17, 2018.
Tucker joins Cumulus from Bonneville’s New Country 105.1/KNCI-FM in Sacramento, CA, where she was Midday Personality.
“This was quite a process,” said Christopher “Boomer” Layfield, Operations Manager for Cumulus-Indianapolis. “After several months of speaking with some supremely qualified candidates, I just kept coming back to Jenna’s incredible passion and prowess in the social media space and her vision to advance our digital brands, not to mention she sounds great on the air! I simply cannot wait for her to join us in Indy and begin working with our already talented team to elevate our efforts across the board.”
Tucker said: “I’m so excited to get closer to home and work in the city where I learned to love radio…go Greyhounds! If you love Country music, WFMS is the place to be as an On-Air Talent, and I’m incredibly honored to have my voice on the station. Plus, I am a huge believer in the power of digital and can’t wait to elevate the cluster to the next level. Now, where’s a girl go to get the best pizza in Indy?”
