Cox Media Group (CMG) Tampa has named Dan Mason as Operations Manager for WSUN-FM (97X), WPOI-FM (HOT 101.5), and WHPT (102.5 The Bone), effective Sept. 8. Mason will also serve as HOT 101.5 WPOI-FM's Director of Branding and Programming.

“Dan's approach to programming is firmly in line with ours,” said Keith Lawless, CMG Tampa’s Vice President and Market Manager. “He is a welcome addition to our team, and I am confident his contributions will help us continue to compete and win.”

Previously, Mason served as Program Director of CBS Boston's WODS (103.3 Amp Radio). Other career highlights include Program Director for KDND (107.9 The End) and KBZC (Star 106.5)/Sacramento, WHYI (Y100)/Miami and WAKS (96.5 Kiss FM)/Cleveland.

"I am thrilled to join the fantastic team in Tampa. Hot 101.5, 97X, and 102.5 The Bone are three of the most exciting and unique brands not just within Cox Media Group, but the country,” said Mason. “I am grateful to Keith Lawless and Steve Smith for the opportunity to lead the team. Also, if anyone wants a great deal on a used, goose down winter coat, snow boots, and windshield scrapers, please contact me immediately, as I won't need them on the beach."

Steve Smith, Vice President of Programming for CMG Radio added, "HOT 101.5 is a very special groundbreaking CHR. We took our time searching for the right fit, and Dan is that guy. He will add his expertise in management and talent development to some of our other Superbrands in Tampa. We welcome Dan to the CMG family!"
