Executives

News

  • Though there has not been a formal announcement from Cumulus, JJ Kincaid debuted on Q99.7 on Wednesday morning following the Bert Show. It is unclear if he will take over the slot from Rachel Ryan.

Research Strategy

We began our search by reviewing the on air program guide published by Q99.7 to obtain a list of the shows and on-air personalities. We then search Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn for each personality in order to provide a link to their social media profiles.

To obtain the list of executive at the station, we first scanned LinkedIn. However, we were unable to produce any results as most of the profiles specified Cumulus as the employer, rather than WWWQ or Q99.7. Using All-Access we were able to locate a list of executives and staff members of the radio station. After cross-checking the names against LinkedIn, social media channels, and a general press search, we found that the directory on All-Access was not up-to-date, as two of the names listed (Gary Lewis and Mark Renier) are no longer with the station. For the remaining executives, we search LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to locate all social media profiles available.

For recent news, we performed a general press search, as well as a press search on All-Access, Insider Radio, Radio Insight, and Talkers.com. In addition to the rebranding and exit of Byron Cooper that were previously noted, the only other recent news involved JJ Kincaid.
