Cumulus Changes: John Foxx Gets WPLJ PD Gig; Jeff Miles Leaves Middays

It’s a busy day in the Cumulus neighborhood. Several reports indicate John Foxx is about to land at WPLJ as program director. What that means for the legendary programmer, Scott Shannon, is unclear. But All Access says Foxx will work “alongside” Shannon. But there’s no explanation as to whether Foxx will be an equal to Shannon or if, in fact, he’ll become Shannon’s boss.

Shannon, who turns 65 this year, celebrated 20 years in the morning with Todd Pettengill in 2011.

Foxx, who had worked for sister station KLIF in Dallas, joins WPLJ July 9th.  WPLJ operations manager Tony Mascaro adds the same title with WABC

Shannon promoted Mascaro to operations manager in 2010 after his 13-year stint as music director.

In other WPLJ news, midday jock Jeff Miles is said to be leaving for an undisclosed Cumulus property. That announcement will be made later this month.
