• iHeartMedia Cleveland has named Jason Carr to the duel role of Program Director of ALT 99.1 FM and APD for the venerable WMMS, Cleveland’s Rock Station, effective February 12. He will report to Keith Abrams, Regional SVP of Programming for iHeartMedia’s North Ohio Region and Program Director of 100.7 WMMS.
“Jason Carr comes to Cleveland after spending 10+ years programming and running stations in Florida,” said Keith Hotchkiss, President of iHeartMedia’s North Ohio Region. “I’m excited for him to head north, experience the Cleveland winter, contribute to the growth of ALT 99.1 FM and further strengthen the brand of 100.7 WMMS.”
Carr most recently served as Operations Manager for Classic Hits WSBH (98.5 The Beach) and ESPN affiliate WTSM in the Melbourne/Treasure Coast area of Florida, and he was Station Manager of Hot AC WHLG (Coast 101.3)/Vero Beach. Carr’s career also includes a seven-year stint in Dallas-Fort Worth as part of the Lex & Terry Radio Network. “I’m thrilled to begin this new chapter of my career in Cleveland,” said Carr. “I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity to lead the efforts of ALT 99.1 and to be on the same team as Rover’s Morning Glory and the Alan Cox Show at the legendary 100.7 WMMS.”
