Cox Media Group (CMG) has named John Larson as its new Classic Hits Radio Format Leader, effective immediately. In addition to his current role as Director of Branding and Programming at Tampa’s WXGL (The Eagle 107.3), Larson will work closely with Steve Smith, CMG’s VP of Radio Programming, and all of CMG’s Classic Hits program directors at the company’s other classic hits stations – Orlando’s WMMO (98.9 FM), Atlanta’s WSRV (97.1 FM), Houston’s KGLK (107.5 FM), Tulsa’s KJSR (103.3 FM), Dayton’s WZLR (95.3 FM), Tampa’s WXGL (107.3 FM), Jacksonville’s WJGL (96.9 FM), and San Antonio’s KTKX (106.7 FM).

"We are thrilled to add John to our brilliant format leader team,” said CMG Executive VP of Radio Kim Guthrie. “When it comes to Classic Hits radio, John is a seasoned pro. His natural instincts will help all of our Cox Media Group Classic Hits stations across the country continue to be the Superbrands they are."

Larson has been in Tampa for 11 years programming CMG’s Classic Hits Station 107.3 The Eagle as well as the company’s two AC stations Magic 94-9 and 105.5 WDUV, (The Dove). He previously programmed KZPS in Dallas for 13 years and other stations in Detroit, Phoenix, Washington DC, Chicago and St. Louis.

“I have had the privilege of performing the Classic Hits format leader role along with my VP programming stripes up until today, and could never have accomplished what we have without partnering with John,” said Smith. “He is extremely qualified to handle the role of format leader for all our Classic Hits stations."

“I’d like to thank Kim Guthrie and Steve Smith for their confidence and support throughout my years with CMG,” said Larson. “I really look forward to working with the great teams in place at all of the CMG Classic Hits and Classic Rock Stations!”
