musicmaster1Former MusicRow radio chart reporting panelist JVC PD Dave Tyler has joined MusicMaster as a Music Scheduling Consultant. Tyler has worked with the MusicRow CountryBreakout chart since inception stating, “I have been with WTRS alone for 16 years and there are few gigs that could entice me away from my JVC Broadcasting family, but this is one that checked every box on my wish list, the most important of which is the chance to work with Joe Knapp, whom I’ve known and admired for a long time.”

Additional new hires include Jeff Schroeder as Senior Technical Consultant for onsite installation, technical documentation, and automation interface expertise and Lorie Robers as Senior Accountant.
