Cumulus Media appoints Rich Bailey as Program Director for Country WIVK-FM/Knoxville, TN. He joins the local Knoxville cluster after 23 years as Program Director for WWST-FM (Star 102.1). Bailey has also programmed Mix 95.1/Charleston, SC and KISS 98.7/Greensboro as well as being a popular air talent in Knoxville for over 20 years.

VP/Market Manager Ken Salyer said, "The opportunity to have Rich join our team in Knoxville was simply too good to pass up. His dedication to detail and drive to win is known industry wide. This elevates our group to an entirely new level."

Operations Manager Jeff Jarnigan added, "The good fortune to have Rich Bailey sitting in our back yard and available was beyond comprehension. His success in Knoxville and vast market knowledge brings an entirely different level of competition capabilities to WIVK. A CMA win and a tremendous PD hire... It's been a great October for WIVK."

Bailey said, "I am very excited about the opportunity to join a legendary and award-winning station like WIVK. I look forward to working with the team there and growing the market share even more. I want to thank Jeff Jarnigan, Ken Salyer, Doug Hamand and Brian Philips for allowing me this opportunity. Now the fun begins."
