Pete DeSimone, Regional Vice President of Cumulus, said, “Hugh is a very talented manger with a proven track record for successfully developing and leading great teams. He understands the value of people, our systems and delivering consistent results for customers.”

“Leaving Pensacola is bittersweet considering the staff's hard work, dedication and success. I am honored and excited to lead the charge in Melbourne and work with another very talented team, offerd McPherson."

Angel Brown, Vice President of Sales for Cumulus Mobile has been promoted to Vice President/Market Manager of its four-station cluster in Mobile. Prior to serving as VP of Sales for Cumulus Mobile, Brown was Sales Manager for Cumulus in Albany, GA.

Today, we are proud to announce her appointment as VP/MM for Mobile, Alabama. Angel single-handedly turned that market last year to a material contributor to our success.”
