Cumulus Media appoints Travis Daily as Vice President of Country. Daily will provide content counsel for the company's 55 Country-formatted radio brands across the U.S. He fills the position previously held by Charlie Cook, who will depart the company on May 31. Daily was named Brand and Content Manager two co-owned Nashville Country stations last month. He officially assumed content responsibilities for WKDF-FM (103.3 Country) and WSM-FM (95.5 Nash Icon) on May 1, after two years as PD KUBL (93.3 The Bull) in Salt Lake City.

Daily was previously Operations Manager and Program Director for Beasley Media Group's WQYK-FM in Tampa and spent 17 years at Clear Channel Communications & iHeartMedia, where he was Senior Vice President/Programming for the company's Sarasota and Tampa clusters. He was also Operations Manager, Program Director & morning host at KCCY-FM (Y96.9) in Pueblo-Colorado Springs and launched WFUS-FM (US 103.5) in Tampa.

Cumulus Media Chief Content Officer Brian Philips said, "When Charlie Cook told me he was departing, I was faced with one of the tougher decisions of my career: who could I trust to lead and represent our vast fleet of important Country stations with the finesse and character that Charlie did? On every front, Travis rises to the demands. Fresh from a fast, stunning turnaround at KUBL, he has demonstrated the creative and executive skills and style that set him apart from the rest. A new era begins in Nashville."

Daily remarked, "Storytelling is at the heart of every great Country song. As VP of Country, you're not just shaping playlists; you are weaving narratives that resonate with listeners across Cumulus Media's entire footprint of Country stations. Together with our talented programmers, we'll harmonize tradition with innovation, ensuring that our stations remain a vibrant part of listeners' lives. It's an exciting time to be in Country music and, with the advancement of technology, we have almost unlimited ways to deliver content."
