Tyler To Townsquare

Cumulus WDRQ/Detroit APD/MD/midday personality Jessica Tyler is joining Townsquare WOKQ/Portsmouth, NH & WPKQ/Portland, ME in the newly created role of Asst. Brand Mgr. Tyler will also handle middays on WOKQ and serve as Dir./Promotions for the Portsmouth cluster. In middays, she succeeds Karen Kiley, who has departed the station. The move reunites Tyler with OM Robby Bridges; the pair worked together in similar capacities at both WDRQ and WCTK/Providence. Tyler's previous experience also includes WQNU/Louisville; WRNX/Springfield, MA; and Rock WPLR/New Haven, CT. "Jessica's skills in creating big, artist-driven listener experiences and events, her leadership, and her relationships with artists and management in Nashville are second to none," says Bridges.
