CBS Radio's Roberts Named VP/Country

CBS Radio/Detroit VP/Music Programming and WYCD PD Tim Roberts has been named VP/Country Programming. Roberts fills the void created with the departure of Jeff Kapugi late last year (Breaking News 12/6).

"Tim is universally respected and admired as one of Country radio’s preeminent programmers which makes him the ideal choice to lead our platform of more than eight million weekly listeners including many of the format’s most recognizable brands," says CBS Radio EVP/Programming Chris Oliviero. "When you are blessed to have a Hall of Famer on the roster as we do in Tim, it is a no brainer to expand his reach and influence beyond Detroit."

"I'm ecstatic to continue my collaborations with Chris Oliviero and the entire CBS Radio team as I expand my role to work with the company's great and iconic Country brands and all-star Country programmers across America," Roberts says.
