Rich Davis returns to Clear Channel CHR KDWB/Minneapolis as the station's new PD. Davis is currently OM of CC-Nashville and PD of WRVW/Nashville, and will join KDWB early in 2012. Davis was APD/MD from 1997-1999 at KDWB and replaces Rob Morris, who announced earlier in December that he would be exiting.
CC-Minneapolis OM Gregg Swedberg stated, "Rich is the perfect choice to lead KDWB. I don't know what I am more impressed with: his creativity, his leadership, or his competitive spirit. He's a great broadcaster and the fact that he knows the market as well as he does is an added bonus."
CC-Minneapolis President/Market Manager Mike Crusham adds, "Rich's track record in Nashville and his Minneapolis connection made him a fantastic choice. We are stoked that Rich is coming to take KDWB to an even higher performance level."
Davis himself commented, "I can't tell you how pumped I am to be chosen for a second tour of duty at the mighty KDWB, a radio station I truly love. Thanks to Mike Crusham, Gregg Swedberg, Tom Schurr and Clay Hunnicutt for the opportunity. I look forward to continuing the amazing heritage of playing the hits and winning in the Twin Cities. Only a station like KDWB could have gotten me to leave what to this point has become my second home of Nashville, TN. I'd also like to say thanks to Dan Endom, Mark Kopelman and Jon Zellner for their blessing in moving on in my career and to my Nashville team for 11 amazing years."
