Rich Bailey Named WIVK PD

Former Summit/Knoxville OM & Top 40 WWST PD Rich Bailey has been named PD for crosstown Cumulus Country WIVK. He succeeds Nikki Thomas, who exited in July (CAT 7/3). "The opportunity to have Rich join our team in Knoxville was simply too good to pass up," says VP/MM Ken Salyer. "His dedication to detail and drive to win is known industry wide. This elevates our group to an entirely new level." Bailey spent 23 years at Summit/Knoxville before exiting in March (CAT 3/19). His previous career stops include Charleston, SC and Greensboro, NC.
