After great conversations with Chris Kellogg, Ashley Allegretto, Troy Hanson and Doug Hamand it became clear that Cumulus was where I needed to be and the opportunity in Fort Walton Beach is a perfect fit. I'm looking forward to leading the team of proven winners at 99ROCK and building on the winning tradition they've created."
