Chris Tyler
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Cleveland has named Chris Tyler Program Director of Top 40 WAKS (96.5 KISS-FM), Rock WMMS and Alternative WMMS-HD2 (99X) effective February 17th.

Tyler has spent the last three years at CCM+E Providence, where he served as VP/Programming for the cluster, and Program Director for Rock WHJY.  He has a long tenure and success record with Clear Channel.  Tyler began his career in 1998 in Boston where he spent more than 10 years in a variety of roles, including Program Director for the legendary WXKS (KISS 108).

Im beyond thrilled to join the amazing people in our Cleveland cluster, said Tyler. "Programming such legendary stations as WMMS and 96.5 KISS-FM is an opportunity I welcome with open arms.  Plus, its not every day you get the chance to work with killer talents like Rover and Alan Cox. Thanks to Tom McConnell, Gene Romano, Gary Mincer and Keith Abrams for their enormous support during this process.

We looked high and low for just the right programmer to lead these two heritage brands in Cleveland and found him right in our own company, said CCM+E/Cleveland VP/Programming Keith Abrams. "Chris brings a unique mix of success in the formats, a history with big-time talent, and a huge passion to win to our cluster.  We could not be more excited to have him join the team!
