Jonathan "JR" Ruppel is named Director of Content for Townsquare Media's cluster in Lansing, MI effective June 1. He'll also become Program Director for Country WITL and Classic Rock WMMQ, with oversight of News/Talk WJIM-AM and Sports WVFN (AM 730 The Game). He makes the move from Country WPOR and Classic Country WZAN & W268CS (970 AM & 101.5 The Outlaw) in Portland, ME where served as PD. Ruppel joined WPOR in 2019 from Saga's Harrisonburg, VA cluster, where he was OM and PD of Country WSIG.

Ruppel said, "Although it's been a long time since I called the area home, I'm actually a native Michigander. Serving as PD of WITL puts me at the helm of a station I used to listen to on the radio under my pillow when I was a kid. Kind of awesome."

He added, "I've enjoyed my time with Saga, and I'm proud of the things we've accomplished in the past three years in Portland. I'm excited about the new opportunity that lies ahead with Townsquare."
