December 18, 2013

Cumulus announces the hiring of three new NASH executives in preparation for the national launches of America’s Morning Show and NASH Nights Live with Shawn Parr next month.

Ian Zak is named Executive Producer for America’s Morning Show, and joins Cumulus after most recently serving as National Producer for Clear Channel’s CHR channel on Premium Choice as well as Producer for 102.7 KIIS/Los Angeles's JoJo on the Radio show. Before moving to KIIS FM, Zak held a series of producing roles at 104.3 MY FM in Los Angeles.

Elaina Smith is named co-host of NASH Nights Live with Shawn Parr, joining from Cumulus CHR WAOA/Melbourne, FL, where she served as co-host of the A1A Morning Show alongside DJ Timmy Vee. Prior to joining Cumulus, Elaina was an on-air personality on San Diego’s Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw show on 100.7 JACK FM.

Also, Jason Addams is named Program Coordinator (for all programming originating at the NASH studio in Nashville). Addams brings to Cumulus more than 15 years of programming experience, having served as PD at WBNQ/Bloomington, IL and WSTO/Evansville, IN.

"These veteran radio programmers will help us continue building NASH into the premier Country music and lifestyle brand across the U.S.," said John Dickey, EVP/Co-COO of Cumulus.

Zak said, "I'm beyond thrilled to take the next step in my career and work with radio legends like Blair Garner to bring America’s Morning Show to a national audience."

Smith said, "This opportunity is something that most people only dream of. I am thrilled and humbled to be playing a part in the growth of NASH FM, and ready to meet the nation."

Addams said, "I am so thankful to Cumulus for the faith. It's an honor to help contribute to the amazing NASH team."
