Tidwell To Detroit

Former Townsquare/Ft. Collins OM Lance Tidwell has been named Dir./Programming for Cumulus/Detroit, which includes Country WDRQ & Hot AC WDVD. He replaces Robby Bridges, who announced his departure and intent to move closer to family in Providence last month (CAT 11/2). Tidwell stepped down in Ft. Collins last month (CAT 11/5) as well. "Very excited to work with my mentor and friend [OM] Mike Wheeler again," Tidwell says. Adds VP/MM Greg Smith, "Lance is a tremendous addition to our management team ... [he] is a highly regarded programmer, on-air talent and leader." Congratulate Tidwell here.
