650 AM WSM General Manager Tom English has resigned. English’s last day with the historic radio station will be Friday, Sept. 27. He has accepted a currently undisclosed opportunity outside of radio.

“This past 18 months has been some of the best of my career,” English said in a statement. “As I’ve said before, Steve Buchanan basically handed me the keys to this priceless Classic, said ‘Don’t wreck it’ and let me drive. I cannot thank him enough for that support and trust. And I cannot thank this amazing team enough for their hard work, patience and the education they have afforded me. No team with whom I have ever worked has more passion and dedication toward a radio station.”

English was appointed General Manager of 650 AM WSM in 2012. He has served in numerous capacities during his 30-year career in broadcasting. Previously, English served as VP/Market Manager for Clear Channel Radio in Nashville (including WSIX). He was with the station for eight years, and was named Clear Channel Innovation Award-winner in 2005 and 2006. He also served as chairman of the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters in 2008.

Applications are being accepted for the General Manager position at 650 AM WSM at rymanhp.com.
