Paul Williams has been named Program Director of Cumulus Nashville country station WKDF-FM.
Williams adds WKDF programming duties after being named Director of Programming for Westwood One Nashville earlier this month. In that role, Williams oversees the marketing, content, and operations for Westwood One’s programming which includes The Ty Bentli Show, The Blair Garner Show, Nights With Elaina, American Country Countdown, Country Countdown USA, Country Gold, and With Elaina.
Williams was most recently Vice President of Marketing & Artist Development for Reviver Entertainment Group in Nashville. He had previously served as an executive at RCA Label Group Nashville and as Operations & Marketing Director for the nationally syndicated Kidd Kraddick Show. Prior to that, he programmed KPLX-FM in Dallas, and spent six years as a liaison to national radio at Universal Studios Orlando radio broadcast center.
“After Paul joined the company, Allison Warren and I saw an opportunity to have him take on the added responsibility of WKDF,” said Charlie Cook, Operations Manager/VP Country Formats, Cumulus Media. “Allison and I appreciate his creativity and we look forward to WKDF’s continued growth under his leadership.”
“What a unique opportunity to lead a radio station in a community you have lived in for over 14 years in one of the craziest times in history,” says Williams. “We’re going to get through this with our Tennessee neighbors then rebound together with music, hope, fun and the larger-than-life Volunteer State spirit.”
Cumulus Media owns and operates five radio stations in Nashville, including: WGFX-FM (Sports Talk), WQQK-FM (Urban), WSM-FM (Country), WWTN-FM (News/Talk), and WKDF-FM (Country).
