Cumulus Media elevates 43-year programming vet John Shomby to Program Director of Country WKDF-FM (NASH FM 103.3) in Nashville. This new post is in addition to the NASH Director of Programming position he has held with Cumulus Media for the past year and half. Shomby joined the company in February, 2016 and previously he was Operations Manager of Max Media/Hampton Roads' five-station cluster. Shomby also held positions with KLIF-FM, KAAM/KZPS in Dallas and Cumulus' seven-station cluster in Augusta.

Charlie Cook continues as VP/Country for Cumulus as well as the VP of Operations in Nashville with continued oversight of WKDF, and PD of WSM-FM (95.5 NASH ICON). Cook said, "John has done a superb job of managing the launch of morning show Ty, Kelly and Chuck on the NASH brand as well as overseeing the nationally syndicated shows NASH Nights Live and The Blair Garner Show, heard locally on WKDF in Nashville. This new position is a logical next step as we continue to grow our country platform."

VP/Market Manager Allison Warren added, "Charlie is the cornerstone of our country strategy. His unparalleled knowledge, leadership, and passion for country music will continue to drive our success. With that, he and I are excited to expand John's duties to PD of WKDF in Nashville. John's experience in country, CHR, syndication, working with big personalities, and making a difference in the community makes him a great fit for Nashville and this iconic brand."

Shomby said, "Charlie is providing me with a great opportunity and I appreciate the vote of confidence from him, Allison Warren, and Mike McVay, Cumulus and Westwood One EVP, Content and Programming. I look forward to working with the WKDF team and continuing to build on the success of NASH FM 103.3 (WKDF)."
