Jeff Sottolano, Director of Programming, CBS Radio


Jeff Sottolano has spent his entire radio career at CBS, starting as an intern at Rocker WZNE/Rochester in 2001. After rising to PD a few years later, he moved to WYSP/Philadelphia, where he eventually became PD and oversaw the notable transition of the 94.1 frequency from Rock to the new home of Sports Talk mainstay WIP a few summers ago. At the beginning of 2014, Sottolano was rewarded with a promotion to CBS Radio Director of Programming. In his new position, he supports major market CBS Radio programmers nationwide in a number of capacities. Sottolano recently took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to FMQB about his move into the corporate side of the radio and much more. [more]
