Connoisseur Media debuts “HITS 100.7” in Bloomington

It was a privilege to be part of Connoisseur Media‘s launch of CHR “Hits 100.7WWHX-FM in the Bloomington-Normal, IL market on April Fool’s Day.  The station replaces former AC “Magic” WVMG and challenges Townsquare Media‘s heritage Top40 WBNQ-FM, who currently sits atop the Arbitron ratings pile with a 16-share!

Connoisseur COO David Bevins and Vallie/Richards/Donovan consultant Harv Blain asked me to help build the station’s formatics, be on site for the launch, and schedule music for a few weeks until their new Program Director was in the building.  I had a blast, and I’m very thankful to have the chance to work – even just briefly – for Connoisseur and Mr. Bevins, as well as to once again partner with Vallie/Richards and Harv Blain.

Hits 100.7 sounds great and will only get better now that PD Chris Ryan has arrived and has air talent waiting in the wings ready to go.  I wish them all the best of success in this new Top40 battle!  Listen to “Hits 100.7” online here.

For the record, I’m still in search of my next great programming/management challenge.  Meanwhile, Sands Media is available for short-term radio management projects, off site music scheduling services, digital/social media strategies and content, and more.  You can reach me at 317-496-7268 or by email for more information.
