CBS Radio Chicago has appointed Greg Solk to the position of Program Director and Operations Manager for Triple A WXRT (93XRT) and Classic Hits station WJMK (KHits). Solk joins the Chicago team with a goal of building loyalty among KHits’ engaged adult listeners while also spearheading a new era of growth at XRT, one of Chicago’s most respected radio brands.

“Greg grew up listening to XRT as a teenager and spent decades programming against it.  This is an unbelievable opportunity for us to have not only a true fan of XRT but a strategic thinker to make XRT the number one rock choice in Chicago,” said Todd Cavanah, CBS Radio Chicago VP/Programming. “His deep knowledge of music’s past, present and future will keep XRT evolving forward by remembering the heritage of this unique Chicago brand. For KHits, Greg brings tremendous knowledge to the Classic Hits format and we welcome him as a partner on our programming team.”

“I have been blessed in my career to work for some amazing stations in my hometown, but this opportunity is off the charts,” said Solk. “Everyone knows there is no station or staff anywhere in the world that can rival the 45-year heritage of WXRT — ‘Chicago's Finest Rock.’ I am humbled to be a part of its brilliant legacy.

“To be asked to also take the reins of KHits makes this the most exciting move I can imagine. I can't wait to join the great team of professionals at CBS Radio. I am honored by the confidence Tim Pohlman, Todd Cavanah and Chris Oliviero have placed in me.”

Solk, a 30-year radio programming veteran and Chicagoland native, began his career as a 15-year-old intern at WLUP Chicago in 1977. Most recently, he was SVP/Programming at Hubbard Radio overseeing seven markets including Chicago, Washington DC, Phoenix, Minneapolis-St. Paul, St. Louis and Cincinnati. His lengthy radio experience includes programming and building iconic Chicago radio brands including The Loop (WLUP), The Drive (WDRV), The Mix (WTMX), and KFOG-FM in San Francisco.
