Cumulus Media appoints Don Hurley as Program Director for heritage Classic Rock WQUT-FM and Country WKOS-FM (NASH Icon 104.9) in Tri-Cities, TN-VA. He steps into the role on August 1 and succeeds longtime Program Director John Patrick, who is retiring on July 31 after a successful 45-year radio career, including 31 years with the Cumulus Tri-Cities stations.

Hurley joins Cumulus Tri-Cities from Bicoastal Media in Medford, OR, where he served as Operations Manager for the company's four-station group since 2008. Prior to that, he was Program Director for Saga Communications' KAFE-FM and KISM-FM in Bellingham, WA. Hurley has also held programming and on-air positions at stations in markets including San Diego, Binghamton NY, Flint MI and Las Vegas.

Cumulus Tri-Cities Vice President/Market Manager Cynthia Rollison said, "I'm thankful to John Patrick for the many contributions he has made to the company and community over the years and wish him much happiness in his retirement. As we look to build on the long history of success with WQUT and WKOS, I am excited to welcome 30+ year programming pro Don Hurley to our team and look forward to working closely with him to achieve great things in the market."

Hurley commented, "I am thrilled to roll up my sleeves with Cumulus in the Tri-Cities TN-VA market, a wonderful community where my family truly wanted to be! I'm grateful to Cumulus VP/Classic Rock Wade Linder and Cumulus VP/Programming Greg Frey for their confidence, and especially to VP/Market Manager Cindy Rollison as we look to expand on the enormous heritage of WQUT and WKOS. I feel as though I'm joining an exclusive club, as opportunities at Cumulus Tri-Cities are extremely rare. Retiring programmer John Patrick has assembled a dominant team, and I'm honored to continue writing many more chapters to this amazing legacy."
