Beasley Media elevates WRIF-FM Program Director Jade Springart to Director of Rock Programming for the company's Detroit-based cluster. In her new role, Springart adds Classic Rock WCSX-FM to her programming duties. She has been with the station for the past 17 years. Springart started working at WRIF-FM as a promotions intern, served as Assistant Program Director, Music Director and midday host before being named PD in August, 2021. She'll continue to be heard on WRIF weekdays from 10:30am-3pm.

"Jade is the perfect choice to lead our rock programming in the Motor City," said Chief Operating Officer Brian Beasley. "Her commitment, dedication and drive for the rock format is exactly what we need to take both stations to the next level and beyond."

"I am thrilled to be able to hand the 94.7 WCSX reigns over to someone as knowledgeable, capable and passionate as Jade," said Vice President and Market Manager Patti Taylor. "Her drive, along with her acute attention to all the right details, makes Jade the exact person we need to take the iconic WCSX through this time of evolution and growth. As Program Director of WRIF and now WCSX, I am excited to see what Jade has in store for Detroit's rock fans."

"I am honored to take on the role of program director for 94.7 WCSX," said Springart. "As a born and raised Detroiter, I grew up listening to 94.7 and can honestly say this station played a huge part in influencing my love for rock n' roll (along with my mom who had this station on every morning while taking me to school). I'm excited to work with some of the best talent in the industry and continue the success of the brand and call I can't thank the Beasley's enough for their continued support and for entrusting me to guide both WRIF and WCSX."
