The upward trajectory of Mathew Myers‘ career with Radio One continues — Myers, currently APD of Urban WCKX (Power 107.5/106.3), Urban AC WXMG (Magic 95.5) and Urban Gospel WJYD (Joy 107.1)/Columbus, OH has been rewarded with a major upgrade to OM of the company’s Richmond group — Urban WCDX (iPower 92.1/104.1), Urban AC WKJS (Kiss 99.3/105.7), Gospel WPZZ (Praise 104.7) and Sports-Talk WXGI (ESPN Richmond).

To give you some idea of how much Myers has learned and progressed in his nearly ten-year run with Radio One, VP of Programming Colby Colb recalls, “When I worked in Cleveland Mathew was the station receptionist. We taught him programming, and then promoted him to Columbus.”
In a Facebook post announcing his move, an elated Myers said, “Those who know me know that I’ve been working my ass off to get to a place where I could earn an opportunity like this and now it is time to show and prove. Thank you to @hurricanedave & [RVP] Marsha Paulson Landess for this shot, and I look forward to the great things we’ll accomplish together! Also gotta thank those who trained, pushed, mentored, and got the best out of me to get to this point Colby Colb Tyner, [Regional OM] Bill BlackKaren VaughnKristen Crockett BJeff WilsonEddie Harrell Jr. …I’m eternally grateful.”
With Myers on the move to Richmond, Radio One will soon be posting the opening in Columbus. Stay tuned.
