Former “Star 94” WSTR Atlanta Director of Operations/Program Director Scott Lindy is heading to Indianapolis to program Cumulus Country 95.5 WFMS.
Lindy will replace Mark Hamlin who exited the station a couple weeks ago after four years. Despite most recently programming Hot AC in Atlanta, much of Lindy’s career has been spent programming Country including iHeartMedia’s “94.9 The Bull” WUBL Atlanta and 93.1 WPOC Baltimore as well as at Sirius Satellite Radio.
Cumulus Media announces that it has named Scott Lindy as Program Director for Country-formatted WFMS in Indianapolis. Scott Lindy is a third generation broadcaster and multi-format programmer, who was previously Director of Operations/Program Director for Lincoln Financial Media in Atlanta, serving for five and a half years as Program Director for Star 94 (WSTR – Hot AC) with oversight of ESPN 790 The Zone and The Atlanta Falcons Radio Network. Prior to that, Lindy was Operations Manager for iHeartMedia/Clear Channel’s Atlanta stations which included Program Director duties for 94.9 The Bull (WUBL – Country) and 640 WGST (News/Talk) and programming oversight for their cluster of six stations and three networks. He formerly held positions including: Senior Director of Country Music Programming for Sirius/XM Satellite Radio; Operations Manager and Program Director for the award-winning WPOC in Baltimore, MD; and Operations Manager and Program Director for WTVR FM /AM in Richmond, VA.
Mike McVay, Senior Vice President, Content and Programming for Cumulus said: “Scott and I have worked together and competed against one another. I am happy that this time we’ll be working together. It’s much easier than competing with him. We’re excited to have him join us in Indianapolis at the legendary WFMS.”
Lindy said: “It’s an honor and humbling to join Cumulus Media and to work with John Dickey and Mike McVay. My thanks goes out to them for the opportunity to grab the programming reins of a station as legendary and as important to the Country radio format as WFMS.”
