Matt Johnson is named PD of Curtis Media Group CHR CHR “Pulse FM” WPLW/WWPL (102.5/96.9) Raleigh-Durham. Johnson most recently programmed iHeartMedia CHR “Z107.9” KSLZ St. Louis, exiting in November amongst company-wide cuts. He succeeds Jud Heussler, who transferred to CHR sister “95.1 The Big Ape” WAPE Jacksonville in March.
“Matt’s success in the format and experience leading stations in locally owned companies made him the ideal candidate,” Senior VP/GM David Stuckley said in a release. “I can’t wait to hear him on the air and see him lead our live and local staff of broadcasters to continued success.”
