Cumulus Announces Two New News/Talk PDs In NYC, Providence
January 2, 2014

Cumulus Media has announced the promotion of Craig Schwalb to PD of News/Talk WABC-AM/New York City and the appointment of Tony Mascaro as PD of the company’s Providence News/Talk stations.

Schwalb joins New York’s 77 WABC from Cumulus-Providence, where he served as PD of News/Talk 630 WPRO, 99.7 FM and AM 790. Prior to joining Cumulus, Schwalb was the Senior Director of Talk Programming for SiriusXM.

"WABC has inspired countless broadcasters over the years and to now lead WABC into its next phase will be an absolute pleasure. Without a doubt, working alongside Cumulus NYC Market Manager Kim Bryant, COO John Dickey, SVP Programming Mike McVay and Corporate Program Director Randall Bloomquist, will be an honor," Schwalb said.
Mascaro replaces Schwalb in Providence as PD of 630 WPRO, 99.7 FM and AM 790. Mascaro most recently held the role of OM for 77 WABC. Mascaro is a 30-year broadcaster with previous programming positions held in New York City, Providence and Hartford.

"I am thrilled to be returning to Providence where it all started for me. WPRO-AM is a legendary radio station with an amazing line-up of talent. I wish everyone at WABC continued success for the future. Thanks to John Dickey, Mike McVay, Randall Bloomquist and Providence Market Manager Barbara Haynes for this opportunity to program a heritage radio station in a great radio market," Mascaro said.
