Cumulus Media announces that Mac Daniels has been appointed Program Director of KSJO, NASH-FM 92.3 San Francisco/San Jose. Daniels has been Program Director of KSKS, 93.7 KISS Country in Fresno since 2010.

Cumulus recently acquired KSJO and flipped to the NASH format on Memorial Day. The station is the only Country radio station in the San Francisco Bay Area and is currently airing 10,000 songs in a row to launch the station.
Mike McVay, Senior Vice President, Corporate/Programming for Cumulus Media, said: “”We are fortunate to have the bench strength to be able to bring a programmer as experienced as Mac to San Francisco.”
Jan Jeffries, Senior Vice President, Corporate/Programming for Cumulus Media, added: “Mac’s attention to detail, major market battle experience and winning track record put him at the head of the line to take the reins of programming at NASH FM 92.3”.
Daniels said: “I am very excited to be leading the charge for the NASH brand for the entire Bay Area. Our goal is to provide Bay Area Country fans with a full compliment of top quality Country Music and Country Lifestyle content across every platform to meet the increasing demand. Thanks so much to John Dickey, Mike McVay and Jan Jeffries for showing their confidence and enthusiasm with this select opportunity.”
