John DimickCumulus Media has appointed John Dimick, a 35-year radio vet, as Vice President, Programming Operations. Dimick joins the Cumulus corporate programming resources team on June 1, and will report to Mike McVay, SVP, Content and Programming. Dimick was most recently SVP of Programming and Operations for Lincoln Financial Media, where he was responsible for the oversight of station brands, digital development, PPM and audience strategies. Over the course of his career, Dimick has programmed stations in Salt Lake City, Columbus, OH, Seattle, San Diego and New York City.

McVay commented, “John Dimick brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this position. He joins Doug Hamand and Greg Frey as a VPPO. The three of them, along with our format specialists and analysts, will provide even more tools to our managers and PDs to employ when programming their stations.”

Dimick said, “Im very happy that Mike McVay wouldn’t buy my ‘retirement from the industry’ thinking! What the new senior management team at Cumulus is building is extraordinary and compelling. I am flattered that Mike and Bob Walker believe I can help advance the growth and success of the stations and the remarkable Cumulus platform. Joining the corporate programming team with people like Greg Frey, Doug Hamand, Dr. Ed Cohen, Val Garris, Ralph Cipolla and the other pros at Cumulus is very exciting.”
