WBZ-FM (98.5 The Sports Hub)/Boston PD Mike Thomas to Exit
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, October 7, 2019|
Beasley Media Group Sports WBZ-FM (98.5 The Sports Hub)/Boston PD Mike Thomas, who has led the station's programming efforts over the past decade, has decided to leave and accept a new position in Chicago in an effort to be closer to his family and fulfill a career goal of becoming a Market Manager. He will continue to remain as a consultant to the station and actively participate in the search process.
"This was an incredibly difficult decision. This radio station is a once in a career station, with a once in a career staff," said Thomas. "I would like to thank Caroline and Brian Beasley and the entire corporate team for everything. Locally, Mary Menna, Cadillac Jack and Buzz Knight have been fantastic to work with! I also want to thank every single Sports Hub employee for 10 years of winning! I know our relationships won't end here."
"It has been a privilege and a pleasure working closely with Mike over the past couple of years," added Beasley Media Group Boston VP/Market Manager Mary Menna. "He is a true talent who has built an amazing, iconic brand. I wish our time together was longer, but wish him every happiness as he starts his Midwest adventure."
"I want to thank Mike for the instrumental part he has played in leading our award-winning brand throughout its first decade, and wish him continued success in his next chapter," said Beasley Media Group Director of Programming Cadillac Jack. "They're big shoes to fill, and we look forward to meeting a lot of great talent in the process as the coming days and weeks unfold."
Before serving as PD for co-owned WZLX, WBCN and 98.5 The Sports Hub, Thomas was Program Director and midday air personality at KGB San Diego. Prior to that, he programmed WFBQ Indianapolis, WTUE and WXEG Dayton and WYMG Springfield, IL.
