Chris is a true broadcaster with a great passion for radio and for the state of Michigan. His previous experience in the region will create new opportunities for both Saginaw and Flint."
Monk said: “I’m very excited to be returning to Michigan, and in particular, to the Saginaw and Flint markets. After meeting with Mary Berner and Bob Walker, I’m honored to be asked to rejoin the Cumulus team. There are a lot of great people and opportunities in these markets.”
