Jay Stevens surprised more than a few folks when he announced his impending departure from Radio One after 11 1/2 years. Stevens, who currently serves as the company’s SVP of Programming Content announced that he would leave the company in mid-July, shortly after the expiration of his contract.
Stevens joined Radio One in January 2007, preceded by a 16-year run with CBS Radio as VP of Programming and PD of WPGC/Washington.
“After almost 40 years of doing this, I just felt like I wanted a break. I plan to take the summer off, work on my golf game, and enjoy life.” He added, “I want to thank Cathy HughesAlfred Liggins and David Kantor for everything they have done for me in my radio career.”
Stevens will assist the company during the upcoming transition process. For the next month or so, he can still be reached in the office at 301-429-4604 or jstevens@radio-one.com; after that you can contact him at tenshare20@gmail.com, or have him paged at “a local country club.”
