Rob Roberts Joins Cox San Antonio As KONO/KSMG Director Of Branding/Programming
Roberts most recently served as PD of Cumulus Media’s “Mix 107.3” WRQX Washington DC until its sale to EMF. He previously has programmed CHR “Q100” WWWQ Atlanta, “Y100” WHYI Miami, Hot AC “Mix 102.9” KDMX Dallas, and Classic Hits “Kool 105” KXKL Denver.
Roberts fills the opening at KONO-FM created by the retirement of Roger Allen in January and takes the reins of KSMG from cluster OM Jeff Garrison.
Cox Media Group (CMG) San Antonio has named Rob Roberts the director of branding and programming for KONO 101.1 and Magic 105.3, effective today. In his new role, Roberts will lead and oversee on-air content, events, promotions and digital presence for the two stations.

Prior to joining CMG, Roberts served as the program director and vice president of programming for WRQX-FM in Washington D.C. He’s spent his 27-year career elevating brands, improving market shares and developing talent in stations around the country, including WWWQ-FM in Atlanta, WHYI-FM in Miami, KDMX-FM in Dallas and KXKL-FM in Denver – just to name a few.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to become part of the Cox Media Group team in a city I love – it’s the job I’ve always wanted. Working alongside pros like Jeff Garrison and Keith Hastings while programming two highly-rated legacy stations is a dream come true,” says Roberts.
