BOSTON (CBS) — The man who calls all the shots at 98.5 The Sports Hub has been named one of the top programming directors in the country.
Mike Thomas, Vice President of Programming for CBS RADIO Boston and Program Director for 98.5 The Sports Hub (WBZ-FM) and WZLX-FM 100.7 Classic Rock, has been named the #1 Major Market Program Director in America by Radio Ink Magazine.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by your peers. Accolades like this are personally rewarding, but they wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for all the talented people I have the privilege to work with every day. They make my job easy,” Thomas said about his honor.
Thomas has nearly 25 years of top management experience as a radio program director. He’s been in charge of 98.5 The Sports Hub since its inception in 2009 and of WZLX since 2006. He was named Vice President of Programming for the five CBS RADIO Boston stations in 2011.
The list of program directors honored by the magazine are broken out by market size (major, large, medium, and small) and are nominated and selected by industry peers.
